Congratulations to two of our members who had pieces accepted for the Richmond Arts Coalition Biennial Art show.  Pam Mahoney exhibited a textile piece and Shirley Rampton a painting.

December Social and Show and Tell

Our December meeting included good social time, fun, food and show and tell.

A Design Process – Lorna Shapiro

Lorna spoke to our November meeting about elements of design.  She talked about how to put simple blocks together into interesting quilts.  We learned a lot and were inspired to take our own work to newer levels.

Cultural Days

Culture Days are a national celebration of arts and culture.  As part of the annual Richmond  event, Guild members hosted a hands on demonstration of ‘crumb’ piecing for hundreds of visitors.  Many children and a few adults tried their hand at putting together a crumb block.


A Midsummer Arts Dream

TAGOR was well represented in the Community Arts Council or Richmond’s (CACR) annual show at Lansdowne Mall.  Three of our members entered the textile category.  One member showed two of her paintings and another entered two photos.  52 works of art on display from 23 talented artists. There were a whopping 2,500 visitors!



September Show and Tell

A wide variety of projects were tackled by members over the summer to produce colourful, beautiful and useful items.

In August and September London Farm displayed several quilts stitched by TAGOR members. On weekends 887 members of the public enjoyed dropping by and asking quilters questions about the work.
