QUILT North guild is comprised of members who share a love of quilting. The guild is dedicated to providing interesting and educational programming for our guild members and guests, to fostering an appreciation of quilt making in the community, and to contributing to the community through the charitable activities of our members.
Our meetings are on the second Monday in September and the first Monday of the month, October to June. Due to the COVID-19 virus, we are meeting via Zoom until further notice. Visit the meeting page to see the slate of wonderful speakers we are having.
When we are able to meet in person, most of our meetings are at the Shenendehowa United Methodist Church (SUMC) in Clifton Park, N.Y. The December meeting usually is our annual holiday party at the Shenendehowa Adult Community Center and our January meeting is our Comfort Quilt Sew-in day at the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Library. Doors open at 6:45 for our meetings at the SUMC and the meeting begins at 7:15.
Annual membership dues are $35; $15 for those under the age of 18. Interested in joining? Click here to go to the Membership page. Infomation on how to join and our payment options are all detailed there. Guests are welcome at all meetings and asked to register at the membership table. The non-member fee is $5 or $10, depending on our speaker.
Each meeting features a program, which may include a guest speaker, along with monthly activities described on the meetings page. The guild also sponsors workshops, charity projects, and bus trips to quilt shows.
The guild is governed by bylaws that are reviewed every 5 years and voted on by the membership.
