Join us

Quilters of all ages, levels, and interests are invited to join our guild. Our purpose is to support the traditions of quilting and to encourage the growth and development of quilting through art, education, and community. 

Our guild numbers about 400 women and men who embrace both traditional and contemporary styles of quilting as evidenced by the quilts and wearable art displayed in our biennial show, Voices in Cloth. View past shows in our Gallery
