Minnesota Quilters offers two meetings each month, with the exceptions of December and June. The evening meetings are on the first Thursday of the month and begin at 7:00 p.m. The morning meetings are on the following Saturday and begin at 10:00 a.m. *Dates may vary if there is a conflict with a holiday.
As of August 2016 our meetings are held at 253 State Street in St Paul, MN, unless otherwise noted.  The building belongs to The Recovery Church.
Meetings are free for MQ members, $5 for non-members. When there's a workshop, the locations may vary. Check the registration forms for details when it comes out.      Meeting rules and policies.
*Coffee and treats will now be served before each meeting to allow more time for socialization among our members. Coffee will be ready at 6:30 p.m. on Thursdays and 9:30 am on Saturdays. Wear your name tags/membership cards so we can get to know each other. Meeting speakers may be subject to change due to circumstances beyond our control.

January 5th & 7th, 2017 MQ's 2017 SHOW KICK OFF!

Come see details about the classes, faculty, lectures, and see class samples!

Some facts about the 2017 Quilt Show Registration Book:

The book gets mailed to these people directly from the printer at the end of December:

  • MQ Members who are current around Thanksgiving.
  • Anyone who paid registration at the 2016 Show.
  • Anyone who mailed a check for $3 to the MQ Office.

If you do not fall under any of those categories:

  • You can still mail a $3 check to MQ, but if it doesn't arrive by Thanksgiving 2016 the book won't be mailed to you until mid January (When Debra has them in the office to mail to you).
  • Or you can pick one up for free at a Quilt Shop that carries them.
