     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 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 2016 we have 80  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!

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.  Thursdays from 1-5 p.m. there is a sewing quilting knitting meeting at the Alice Keene Senior Center off County Home Road. Whatever your level, whatever your interests, we're here to help and we'd LOVE to meet you. Please join us at one of our meetings, or call Rosena Grott, President, for more information. 252-347-4751(H) or email her at   rlg0517@outlook.com


 Message from our President:


 

Dear Fellow Members,

     We are pleased to announce we have 80 members in our guild, delighted to have so many new members.   Members are encouraged to attend guild meeting on the 2nd Thursday of the month at first Christian Church or day meeting the 4th Tuesday of the month at Jaycee Park and Recreation.  At the monthly meeting we discuss our goals, projects, charity work, projects, finances and professional workshops.             At each meeting we have a program where a member will demonstrate a block, quilting technique, how to use quilting tools or any related quilting topic.  The guild is a wonderful way to learn about: the art of quilting, professional workshops, quilting retreats, guild committees, needs to volunteer for programs, and meet new people. We encourage members to become involved in our various activities; it is the best way to meet other members.

    

      Quilt club continues to meet every Monday at Jaycee Park 6pm-9pm. This meeting is open to the public.  A Sewing Bee happens also, at the Alice Keene Senior Center off County Home Rd. every Thursday  from 1p-5pm.  Join us to make new friends and learn the art of quilting.

    

Come see us!


Rosena Grott, President.
