Playdays are short (2 hour) sessions about one aspect of quilting. They are informal, flexible and can be easily held on Zoom, or in person. These are free to KQG members and guests.
Workshops are longer, more formal learning sessions for either a project or in depth on one aspect of quilting. They are generally held in person, but some can be held on Zoom. There is usually a fee to cover the instructor’s fees and room rental. Workshops are open to guild members, Eastern Ontario Interguild member guilds and visitors.
