     Welcome to the wonderful world of quilting. Whether you are new to the art of quilting or an experienced quilter, we invite you to join us at the Greenville Quilters Guild, where we cover the range of quilting from traditional bed quilts your grand-mother admired to the contemporary quilts of the modern fiber artist. Please join us in discovering your particular niche!

     The Greenville NC Quilters Guild was formed in 1980 to promote and perpetuate the art of quilting. The goal of the guild is to benefit and educate all interested persons in learning about the "art" of quilting. We do this through teaching the techniques of sewing and quilting, frequent meetings, sponsoring workshops , exhibits, and quilt shows.

     Currently The group of about 65 women from Greenville and surrounding towns and counties meet weekly and monthly to enjoy and promote the art of quilting. Anyone interested in learning or increasing their knowledge of quilting is welcome to attend and invited to join the guild. If you've recently moved into the Greenville area and are looking for not only a place to share your love of quilting, but want information about our activities, please let us know! As of January of this year we have 60 registered members; some are brand new to the sewing machine; some are experienced seamstresses but have never quilted. Not to worry!  We all want to help you learn what we've learned; that quilting is an "addictive" activity, filled with tons of fun at our various meetings. Our biggest meeting is every 2nd Thursday evening, about 6:30 p.m. at the First Christian Church off 14th St. Extension (Family Life Center). A fairly regular group of us meet every Monday evening about 6-8:30 p.m. at the Parks & Recreation Craft Center, off Cedar Lane next to Jaycee Park (runs off 10th St). Mondays we teach new quilters, work on our quilts, cut up fabric for charity quilts, discuss latest projects, perhaps just knit and chat! It's our informal gathering to "get out of the house" and let the men and kids do the dishes! If you do plan to come on Mondays, please call President Sherrill Boyce at:  252-364-2260 to make sure someone is present to welcome you!

For those who do not drive in the evening, there is a day group that meets each 4th Tuesday of the month at the above mentioned Craft Center off Cedar Lane. They meet 1-3 p.m.  Whatever your level, whatever your interests, we're here to help and we'd LOVE to meet you. Please call Sherrill Boyce, President, 252-364-2269 (H) or email her at sher.boyce@aim.com
