Welcome to the Greater Hartford Quilt Guild
The purpose of the Greater Hartford Quilt Guild is to promote awareness and appreciation of the art and heritage of quilt making, both among our membership, as well as the general public.
The Greater Hartford Quilt Guild began in 1980, with a small group of women sharing a common interest in quilting. It has grown into a not for profit organization of 700 plus members, with individual local chapters that meet monthly throughout Connecticut. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in quiltmaking.
Individual chapters, as a part of a major guild, enjoy many advantages:
- Guild-subsidized workshops and lectures by nationally known quiltmakers are available at an affordable fee.
- Our newsletter ”Basting Lines” links hundreds of quilters with information on regional events, chapters and personal achievements.
- The combined efforts of the Guild and its chapters results in regular contributions of service and money to communities and charitable institutions.
- Members are also able to exhibit quilts, teach, and demonstrate the many aspects of quilt making at local and regional shows and fairs.
All of the Events pages on the GHQG website were updated in February 2014. New information is available on Annual Gathering page as of 7/25/15. Please send any corrections to David.
