A Quilt Guild based in Rutland Vermont, with members from surrounding towns and counties.

Welcome to Maple Leaf Quilters

October 18, 2016 Guild Meeting

Sharon Shorey


If you have been interested in the Vermont quilting community, you have most likely seen amazing miniature quilts made by our own MLQ member Sharon Shorey of North Bennington. 


We are so fortunate that Sharon will be our featured speaker at the October 18th meeting with her trunk show “Miniatures Through the Years” with over 100 miniature quilts.  Her focus, along with everything being teeny tiny, is traditional designs.


Sharon has been stitching away since she first learned to sew on a Singer Featherweight when she was seven. She became interested in sewing quilts in the 1970’s. To see some of her work, visit Sharon on Pinterest.  This link should get you directly to the correct page. https://www.pinterest.com/sharonishorey/quilts-i-made/



On Wednesday, October 19th Sharon will be teaching a class Foundation Piecing a Sampler in miniature.

Join us and learn how to make a mini!  These tiny quilts make great gifts…there’s always room for one more! 


The class costs $45 for members and $50 for non-members, and uses minimal supplies.  Sharon is an experienced teacher and an AQS certified instructor. This mini sampler can be made into an adorable calendar holder, or a small tabletop quilt.  It will be held at The Maples in Rutland.  Contact Nancy Bart for more information and to sign up.  802-247-8221  snghebart@comcast.net
