The York Quilters’ Guild Welcomes New Members!
The York Quilters’ Guild welcomes everyone who is interested in quilts. All are welcome, whether your experience level is beginner (you never quilted, but would like to learn more or you just enjoy quilts), intermediate (you have quilted, but would like to improve), or expert (you’re an accomplished quilter who may be willing to share that expertise with others).
Come to a meeting as a guest and see if you would like to join our quilting community. Most meetings are held at Zion United Methodist Church, 1030 Carlisle Rd, York, PA 17404. A visit is free, unless there is a paid guest speaker, and then we ask for a $5 donation. You’ll find more information about the Guild under tabs at the top of the website.
If you decide to join, annual dues are $30 if paid by the January 2023 meeting, $35 if paid later. (Members joining
for the first time after July 1 pay $15 for the rest of the year.) Meeting are held at 7 pm on the third Thursday of each month (Exception: no meeting in November, December meeting is first Thursday)

Lois Mease: “Stash Savvy”
Lois from River Lawn Quilting will demonstrate a system to organize fabric stash. Her “Stash Savvy” system is designed to help you organize – and use! – your stash. With this system, you will be able to see exactly what fabric you have and how much of it you have. If you organize by color, it’s even easier to grab what you want and start sewing. A trunk show with quilts made straight from her stash. A $5.00 donation is requested for guests.
