Manitoba Prairie Quilters Welcomes You!
We’re sew excited that you’re visiting us and hope we can be your source for all things quilting! Founded in 1983, the 300+ members of MPQ are dedicated to enriching the art of quilt-making. Quilters and artisans alike come together and share ideas, gift their skills, refine their art, and bind it all together with fun!
Manitoba Prairie Quilters offers a little bit of something for everyone; whether learning is your passion or teaching your gift. Your ideas are welcomed in a unique environment where one quilter’s mis-stitch is another’s inspiration. We encourage and welcome quilters of all skill levels — your experience is important to us and hope you’ll share it with the group.
Maybe window shopping is more your style (unless we’re talking about a fabric store of course) — this site is designed with you in mind. Learn about how to get involved, when classes are held, what membership offers to enrich your quilty world, and meet some fellow-quilters. You may be surprised who you’ll see and meet.
Quilting and the artistry of thread and fabric creations are what bring us together, how you choose to add your personal flair and unique style is limitless. We’ll all be excited for you to show us at next meeting’s show and tell!
Always feel welcome!
Come as a guest - stay as a friend. Our meetings are open to all who wish to explore the world of quilting, quilt-making, fabric and textile arts of all types. Membership seams to happen naturally after that! 😉

Welcome to Our Website
We’re happy you chose to visit our website. Hopefully you will have time to browse through it and find something of interest to you. You don’t have to be a quilter to enjoy finding out more about us. You may discover that the photo gallery is a good place to start. Not only does it contain many photos of projects completed by the membership but it also contains photos taken at many of our activities and candid shots of members as they have participated.
We meet monthly to share ideas, gain inspiration, participate in special events and often just to socialize. Everyone is welcome to share the fun. Besides working on our own projects you will notice that we take part in many charity endeavours as well. Many hundreds of quilted projects have been donated to bring comfort and joy to those less fortunate than ourselves.
This website is designed to show and tell you about many of the things we do so I hope you enjoy exploring all it has to offer.
