The Valley Quilters Guild, Inc. was formed in 1985 to promote quilting in the Matanuska Valley. We currently have a membership of over 200.
Our main objectives are service to our community and the education of quilters. We serve the community by donating quilts to organizations and groups that approach us with their needs. Our members also let us know of needs in the community.
Valley Quilters Guild General Membership meetings are held at the Palmer Railroad Depot on the FIRST THURSDAY of EVERY MONTH @ 7 PM with social hour begining at 6:30, unless otherwise noted. Most meetings last approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hrs, depending on the program and how many show and tell projects are shown! Each meeting includes a fat quarter and Block of the Month drawings for paid members only.
Looking for a last minute, quick gift for someone special? Here is your chance to make that gift. Each project can be made in 2 ½ hours or less. Register for class at the Education table during the October, November, or December guild meetings. Supply list and class preparations directions will be available at that time.
When: December 6, 2014 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm
Guild Member Cost: $20
Non-Member Cost: $60
Now is the time to reveal your brown bag challenge project. Bring the completed project, wrapped in Christmas paper, to the November meeting. Check in at the Education Table and receive the name of your recipient. Write that name on a gift tag and attach it to the package. The wrapped gifts will be collected by the Education Committee and distributed during the break. Show and tell will be exciting when the recipients reveal their gifts.
If you haven’t completed your project, begin to “burn that midnight oil”.
