    Stupid question

    What is a quilt guild?

    I've never heard of them till coming hear. It sounds like a quilting club but I would like some details about them.

    I love stupid questions! They are never stupid. A Quilt Guild is a quilting club. Usually a group of quilters get together and quilt and talk about quilting and dream about quilting together. Some groups are small, just a few quilters others are quite large with 200 plus. They hold contests, classes, swaps, charity quilts etc. You should check with your LQS and find guilds in your area. Good Luck and have fun.
    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    You have to interviewed, judged and deemed worthy to join a guild and follow the quilt police rules to the letter.

    It is group of quilters who like share and plan quilting activities that meet and it can be as formal or as casual as they want it to be.
    Got fabric?

    That isn't be necessarily true around here about being deemed worthy. Unless you are kidding! Our guilds are very welcoming.

    Our Guild also gets discounts at the local quilt store. But they are totally friendly. No judgement here.

    Guilds are a great way to learn the craft of quilting! I have met the most wonderful women who are willing to share what they know and help you learn the art of quilting! For heavens sake! find one close to you and enjoy!

    I learned today that Japan does not have guilds. Isn't that amazing, especially with all of the gorgeous quilts coming out of Japan? We've been talking to some of the Japanese quilters here at the quilt show in Houston, and they all say the same thing - no guilds. I asked a quilter if there was something they do to spend time with other quilters, and she said they take classes.

    Guilds can be wonderful! Ours has classes, programs, projects and most women are very open to sharing what they know. Great way to make some wonder friends and learn lots of new things. Go for it! I don't think you will be sorry you did. Good luck.
