Join Us!

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 6:30 pm on the third Thursday of each month (Exception: no meeting in November, December meeting is first Thursday)

Civil War Era Quilts with Cathie Wiggs

April 18 Meeting   6:30 pm

 Go back in time with Cathie Wiggs as she shares a Civil War story, including a trunk show of period quits.

Cathleen Wiggs, a retired U.S. Marine and published author, is active in the folk art of quilting and presents her creations through her reenactment performances. 

 

“Lily and her family have so very little left to them until one day an unexpected visitor shows up at their back door, and the healing process begins.”

 

May 16: Lancaster Diamond Sampler with Ann Holte

The Lancaster Diamond Sampler is one of a small group of similar quilts that were made in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in the mid-1800s by a group of quilters who referred to themselves as the “girl cousins.” They were friends and family, old and young, new quilters and experienced quilters, who got together to visit, to eat, to share knowledge, fabric, and patterns, and to work on quilts.

Meetings 6:30 pm at Zion United Methodist Church, 1030 Carlisle Ave. York, PA 17404

$5 fee for non-YQG members
