About Us

We are sisters who have been sharing our love of quilting with others through organized sewing days.  At these sewing days we help you finish those projects that just won’t come together on their own. Sometimes we teach a new technique or two and lunch is always served.  You’ll find Valerie either in her sewing room in Nanaimo, B.C. or rooting for the Vancouver Canucks. Joan spends time at the office, in the kitchen and when time permits in her sewing room in Tsawwassen, B.C. You can check out our quilting classes, sewing days and retreats at www.mapleleafquilters.ca. Our Maple Leaf Quilters Facebook page plays host to photos of these events.

New Quilting Partner: Gammill 2210 with a 10 foot bed. We’ve named her Maybelline and she can accommodate quilts up to and including queen size. Contact Joan at mapleleafquilters@gmail.com for more information on where to drop off your quilts for quilting and to discuss pantograph patterns and threads to be used.

Happy Quilting and Welcome to the Neighbourhood!

    I enjoyed reading your blog, especially the quilting with kids. I am teaching my granddaughter who is 10 to quilt and we enjoy seeing what other youngster are doing. She is the only person her age she knows who quilts. Thanks for sharing.
    I just started blogging a few months ago. I like how yours is organized.
