Our guild was founded in 2001 and our members include beginners through experts, with interests from art quilts to traditional quilts in an array of materials. Our purpose is to share a love of quilts and quilt making. We also sponsor seminars, exhibitions, workshops, and community service projects.
Thanks to Olga Schrichte of Frederick, MD, for the image of "The Spires of Frederick," above, which she designed and created in August 2015.
We meet on the second Thursday of each month, 6:30 p.m., currently via Zoom.
Taking the Fear out of Free-Motion Quilting
We will welcome Geraldine Wilkins for her lecture "From Frustration to Fabulous: Taking the Fear out of Free-Motion Quilting" at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center on June 9, 2022. Geraldine started out as a very successful photojournalist. She moved from LA to Virginia in 2005 and began her quilting journey with a Virginia church group in 2006. Since then, she has built an amazing career as a quilter, speaker, designer, and teacher. Her quilts have exhibited in local and regional quilt shows, national touring events and shows with Hoffman Fabrics, American Quilt Society Quilt Week at Paducah, Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, curated exhibits at the Virginia Quilt Museum and juried Sacred Threads 2019 exhibit, as well as multiple books and magazines.
