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!
Our speaker, Barbara Eikmeier, has been teaching since 1990, so she has seen it all! She designs fabric for Paintbrush Studio Fabrics and patterns for her own business (check it out at Barb's Favorites), as well as teaching classes and giving workshops. You can see her at Craftsy too.
Barbara has a wide variety of quilt designs and a special love for applique. She will be teaching a workshop, "It's All in the Sashing," on Saturday.
Our February meeting will be on the 1st at 7:00 pm at the Masonic Family Center.
Our January meeting featured designer Erica Plank, owner of Unseen Hands Designs. Wow, this is one prolific and energetic woman! As she showed off quilt after quilt, often featuring embroidery, applique, or chenille, she told us about her career on the road and her recent move back to her Kansas hometown. Her Cathedral Window pillow workshop the next day was booked solid, and I heard it was a success. Check out Erica's website to see an amazing variety of designs, all with a large dollop of country charm.
Our first meeting of 2018 will be on Thursday, January 4, at 6:30 pm at the Chico Masonic Family Center. Erica Plank, owner of Unseen Hands, is a quilt and embroidery designer. Check out her website, where you will see a wide variety of designs, including pieced, applique, and chenille quilts.
Erica's workshop on Friday, for a Cathedral Window pillow, is already full and has a waiting list. Come on Thursday for your chance to hear from this creative designer!
