Meet MPQ Charter Member Pearl Braun-Dyck 

Experience The Joy of Handwork!

Working with our hands is something that our mother gifted to her children. I’ve learned various different hand activities but it was ultimately quilting that opened up a whole new world to me.

I’ve taken and taught classes in many different provinces/states and some of my commissioned pieces are in Manitoba, Ottawa and Germany. The 6+ years of owning the Quilter’s Jewel, in Morden, will always be a highlight in my life. I also enjoy sharing my love of quilting through presenting trunk shows.

Over the past couple of years have done a lot more hand embroidery work as well. I enjoy seeing how the quilting and embroidery meld together so well. Hand appliqué is my true quilting ‘joy and love’ and enjoy teaching it and reminding quilters of the wonderful satisfaction found in hand work.

I’m a charter member of MPQ (#7) and also a member of our local quilt group the Barnswallow Quilters.

Quilting retreats are also a highlight for me and it’s been a privilege for me to host my upcoming 34th annual hand stitching retreat this coming February. I’m also thankful for the virtual retreats that are options now…….always wonderful ways to meet new quilters.

Doug and I continue to enjoy living on the farm in Plum Coulee. My gazebo is a happy place for me where I can sit and stitch, read and entertain. We also continue to enjoy motorcycling and look forward to more excursions in the coming year.

Pearl will be teaching two half-day workshops on April 27, 2024 – “Template Free Hand Appliqué” and “Elevate Your Quilt Blocks With Hand Embroidery”.
