Members and friends, welcome to our website! We are a vibrant, friendly and varied group of almost 200 quilters and quilt artists who have been sharing quilts, talent and camaraderie since 1981. There are monthly meetings, most of them with special speakers, quilt related activities, and show and tell. We have quilt shows every other year, and lots of quilt-ins, challenges, round robins, and community service projects, along with an impressive library for our members - something for everyone! As you navigate this website, you will see some of our work, check out our schedule, and share our accomplishments. If you are interested in quilting, please join us the first Thursday of the month for our Guild Meeting. We love to meet visitors and will make you feel at home!

Sad News and an invite

It is with a sad heart that the guild announces the cancellation of the Gee's Bend Quilters in October. Due to many factors outside our control, we are making the heart breaking decision to change our October program. Our Vice Presidents will be working hard to bring us a new speaker and a new workshop. Your sadness will turn to joy at that time.

We hope you will continue to watch our web pages to see what new and exciting things happen. At our July Guild meeting, we introduced a full slate of officers for the next guild year. Hopefully all will be in attendance to vote in August and then be at the board meeting for the transition. It's always a joy to have willing guild members for all of our offices. Please take time to wish them the best and sign up to help on a committee. There will be openings announced at our August meeting and we would really like to see them all filled. This past year we had some that were left vacant and the guild really felt the pinch.

Please come join us for August when we welcome Peggy Gelbrich and her Montana Cartwheel pattern for the workshop. An amazing quilt to see. If you missed the quilt at our July guild meeting, you will see it again in August.
