The World of Renske’s Quilting

September 9 and 10th 2022

After making quilts for over 25 years, it is time to slow down.

In 1999 I coordinated my first quilt for the New Hamburg Mennonite Relief Sale (NHMRS) with members of the Waterloo County Quilters’ Guild. It was very successful and started my career as a quilting teacher. A highlight of that career was receiving the CQA Teacher of the Year Award in 2012.

Over the years I have entered national and international shows with some success and have had the opportunity (and joy) of teaching all over the country, including at several Quilt Canada Conferences.

Following the first quilt I coordinated for the Relief Sale, I coordinated 8 more feature quilts for them, and all have done very well with the top seller going for $44000.

Because teaching took over my quilting career, I never sold any of my quilts. As a result, there are over 100 quilts here, old and new, big and small, traditional and beyond.

What to do with the “mountain” of quilts? Wouldn’t it be fun to see them all displayed at the same time? And what is the fun of keeping them all for myself? Why not create a fundraiser for the CANADIAN FOOD GRAINS BANK?

Therefore, on September 9th and 10th, my quilts will be hanging up, folded over or laying down all over our home and you are invited to see them.

Just to make it interesting for the guys, we will have a collection of antique tractors and equipment on display.

So, come on out and enjoy a day in the country. I look forward to seeing you and sharing my quilt. Please feel free to share this email and poster.


Thank you,

Renske Helmuth
