     About us

  Our Guild was established in 1981.   We have about 300 members.

The purpose of our organization shall be to advance fellowship among persons interested in the art of quilting; to preserve the tradition, culture, and history of quilting; and to enjoy and appreciate others' work.

Our meetings are held the first Monday of the month.  When the first Monday falls on a holiday, the meeting is held the following Monday.  The meetings begin at 7:00 pm and usually last until 9:00pm.

Our meeting location is at

      Knights of Columbus

      2590 Solomons Island Road

      Edgewater, MD 21401

      MAP

We have a guest speaker or an organized program at each of our Monday meetings.  Our featured speaker may also conduct workshops which are generally held the weekend prior to the meeting, on the day of the meeting or the day after the meeting.  Members must make reservations for the workshops since seats are limited; fees are about $40 to $90.

You are invited to attend our next meeting!  Bring along a copy of our Membership Form     

Members also have access to a Members' Only area on the website.

Our membership is also involved in many charitable and community service projects.
