After making quilts for the AAQI for more than a year, one of the members of Calgary Guild of Needle and Fibre Arts
brought up the subject of group support of AAQI to a guild meeting. The members voted in favour of putting their charitable efforts towards AAQI for the next two years! In addition to making quilts individually for AAQI, the guild is also holding small mini-sales of excess crafting supplies at each meeting.
The objectives of the Calgary Guild of Needle and Fibre Arts (CGNFA) are to promote the practice and knowledge of needle and fibre arts and to have a fellowship of persons who enjoy these arts - at all levels of skill and ability. It is primarily for those who wish to learn and to share their knowledge and thereby work towards maintaining high standards of design, colour and workmanship.
