Minnesota and Surrounding Area Quilt Guilds and Groups

Quilt Guild Information Wanted

As a service to quilters, MQ has a quilt guild listing.  Many people use this list to send out information about upcoming quilt events and to find a local guild to join.  If you would like to have your information updated or included on this list, please send it to secretary@mnquilt.org or mail it to the MQ Office at 1203 Fifth Street SE, Minneapolis  MN 55414.  We would welcome information from neighboring states, too.  If your quilt guild is on our list and has disbanded, please let us know that too, so that we can remove your guild from our list.

The minimum amount of information we need is the name of your guild and a contact person with address and phone number.  Ideally, we would like more detailed information such as when and where you meet, if there are yearly dues, how many members you have, web address, e-mail address, etc, but it is up to you how much information you want listed.

Guilds are in Minnesota except where noted.
