THE COLORADO SPRINGS QUILT GUILD (CSQG) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the art of quilting by providing an opportunity for sharing ideas and learning new techniques. Founded in 1987 by a small group of women sharing a common interest in quilting. What began as a Quilting Bee has grown into a large non profit organization of 100 plus members. Incorporated as a 501(c)(7) in 1998, we range from true beginners, to experienced instructors, brought together by a shared love of quilting and a desire to learn. The purpose of the guild is to expand the knowledge of quilt making; promote the appreciation of fine quilts; sponsor and support quilting activities and quilters' expertise through education, programs and workshops; and provide public service projects for the good of the community.
Membership in the guild is open to anyone who is interested in quilts or quilting. Benefits awarded to our members include:
Annual Dues are $25.00, with special rates for Junior quilters.
CSQG Meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at the Central United Methodist Church 4373 Galley Road, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Doors open at 6:00 PM for meet and greet, meeting starts promptly at 6:30 PM. The monthly meetings always include a “show and tell” where guild members show the projects they have worked on, a brief business meeting and a presentation/trunk show by local and/or well known, published quilting experts. We also include other general activities such as a monthly raffle, door prizes, secret pals, show-n-tell, put-n-take, yearly auction, and much more.
Many of our programs feature nationally recognized quilt teachers and speakers; a $5.00 guest fee is required for all meetings.
