About Our Guild

The Barnswallow Quilt Guild began around 1988 in a little barn south of Morden with just a few quilters, many of whom are still members of the guild today. Our members quilt, knit, embroider, hardanger, and more.  The guild is presently made up of approximately 60 women from all over southern Manitoba who love meeting other women who share their creative passion.

One thought on “About Our Guild

  1. Hi Pearl,

    I believe we spoke on the phone pre-covid. I am the director of the Eleanor Rose Outdoor Quilt Show in Kelwood, MB. I believe you gave me Sally Unrau’s husband’s contact information at the time. I spoke to him then about Sally being an In Memoriam quilter here. I can’t recall his name, but he was most interested. My email is kmcraelev@gmail.com and my phone number is 204-967-2174. Could you please share his contact information with me?

    Also, I will be sending you information about the 2023 EROQS show in October once your guild gets into the swing of regular meetings.

    Thank you,
    Kathy Levandoski
