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 for quite awhile now. We are now entering our 31st year. There are monthly meetings, most of them with special speakers, quilt related activities, show and tell, etc. 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, see 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!

Annie Star donates quilt to KIXE Auction

For those who like to know what we do, this might give you an idea. One of our small quilt groups, Ditsy Friends, made their version of a Freddy Moran pattern "Parade of Houses" to donate to KIXE for their auction, May 1st through May 4th. This is the quilt they made. It was quilted by Jo Schrieber and the Auction will take place on KIXE's Travel, Leisure, and Wedding Auction  7pm-11pm. You might want to tune in and try your hand at winning. The guild's thanks go out to the Ditsy Friends group for sharing their talent with the community.
This is just one of the projects that the guild does for our community. We also donate to other groups. We love what we do and we'd love to have you join us. Our community sew night is in June and we get together in groups to make quilts to be donated. Anyone is welcome. If you can sew, press, visit, bring snacks, or just want to see what we're doing, please come visit on June 4th.

See our Committees page for more of our donations.
