At this time of the quilt year three types of quilters will be visiting quilting group websites: those who are checking in for the new season with the group they currently belong to, quilters looking for a new group with which to share their quilting passions and last, but (as they say) not least new quilters who want to learn a new creative channel. VILLAGE QUILTERS WELCOMES ALL OF YOU!
To those of you seeking a new guild or your first guild, Village Quilters is a guild in the "Goldilocks zone." You know, not too big but not too small. We are large enough to have great programs and a varied enough group that you will surely find a soul-quilter who loves the same styles and techniques as you do. We are small enough that you will get a chance to meet and talk with quilters in an atmosphere that fosters friendships. Our group is in some ways the typical group described in the American Quilters Survey, "educated, passionate, active and creative." What is atypical is the friendliness of a group representing a crosssection of quilt interests and levels of quilting skills and experience. We are also small enough that new quilters are not left floating but taken in hand to learn about textile wonders. Visit us and share our quilting journey of growth and creativity. Check out meeting details at this site.
This year's program should be quite interesting as we will be taking a look at quilting "from the inside and outside." Our speakers will be visiting quilter/lecturers and our own guild members. Check out the program!
Whether you are a current friend or as-yet-unmet friend, welcome to a new quilt year with Village Quilters.
We are a friendly guild that meets at: Blanchard Road Alliance Church located at 1766 S. Blanchard St. in Wheaton, Illinois, 7 p.m. on the second Monday of each month.
All are welcome.
There are currently about 45 members, which makes us just the right size to have a lot going on, but still small enough to know everyone and make lasting friendships.
