Meetings

Except for the months of December and January, our meetings are held at Shenendehowa United Methodist Church, 971 Route 146, Clifton Park, NY 12065. Meetings are sometimes preceded or followed by workshops lead by our speakers. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. and the meetings begin at 7:15 p.m.

Generally, a meeting consists of a speaker, guild business, and “show and tell” by our members. Be sure to check in each month and to wear your name tag for a chance to win a prize. Check out the Block of the Month, Library, Opportunity, Workshops, Freebies, and other tables.

QUILT North meets on the first Monday of the month, except for September when, because of the Labor Day holiday, we meet on the second Monday. Our guild year is from September to June. See a list of our entire year’s meeting schedule and speakers here. Below is more information about upcoming meetings.
