The mission of our guild is to:
- enhance the knowledge of quilting within the group and the community
- preserve quilting as an art form
- establish, maintain and upgrade quilting standards
- to encourage an exchange of ideas and methods
- participate in community projects
We do this by bringing talented and creative quilt designers as speakers and to teach their special skills in workshops; by providing access to a large library of quilting and quilt-related books, magazines, and videos; by putting people together who share a passion for quilting in a warm and open environment at our monthly meetings and other scheduled events; and by hosting challenges, charity quilting bees, quilt shows and many other events and activities which provide opportunities for members to expand their knowledge and skills.
