Meetings & Lectures

QUILT North meets on the second Monday of the month in September and on the first Monday of the month from October to June. There are no meetings in July and August.

A meeting will consist of a speaker, guild business, and “show and tell” by our members.

Beginning in April 2022, Quilt North’s monthly guild meetings will be hybrid. You will be able to attend a meeting in-person at the Shenendehowa United Methodist Church or virtually from home in real-time. We chose to embrace live streaming so all members near and far, mobile and homebound, fit as a fiddle or under the weather, can feel connected and participate.

Link for members will be emailed!

COVID Policy as of March 21, 2022

Quilt North’s Covid Policy is based on the recommendations of public officials, policies of the venues where we gather, and the preferences of our speakers and teachers. 

Lectures.  Wearing masks at lectures is optional.

SEPT 12 2022 – Beth Helfter Consistency in Chaos Trunk Show

Monday Guild at Shen United Methodist Church – doors open 6:30 pm

Are you overwhelmed by scrap, either physically because you are drowning in them or mentally because the idea of a fully scrappy quilt scares you? The key to scrap containment is consistency, and I’ll show you how to make the most of any pattern by augmenting it with JUST ENOUGH scraps to give it wow without going over the edge into craziness. Lots of thoughts on what makes a good scrap quilt, why scrap quilts are my favorites, and insights into how one idea morphs into so many more during the design process. You’ll never look at a quilt pattern just one way again!
