The Quilt Guild of Metro Detroit was established in 1980 to promote cooperation and interchange of ideas among those who are engaged or interested in quilting; to stimulate an interest in quilting; to promote and advance the art of quilt making; and to present educational programs and services in the design and techniques for quiltmaking.

We meet the third Tuesday of every month from September through May (except December) at 7:00 pm at:

Redeemer United Methodist Church, 20571 Vernier Rd, Harper Woods, MI.

Doors open at 6:15 pm so that you can visit our extensive library and meet with other members. Membership is $25 per year and includes 6 issues of our guild newsletter, “Patches & Pieces”. A fee of $5.00 is charged for each guest.


IMPORTANT:

It has not yet been determined if the February 15, 2022 meeting will have an in-person option at the church, or will be online ONLY. Once a decision has been made, it will be posted on this page.


Programs for 2021-2022

From our Membership Chair:

I am happy to say that the QGMD, for the 2021-2022 season, will be trying to get back to “normal” in a hybrid sort of way.  While we will continue with Zoom presentations of speakers, we would like to encourage groups of people to gather to watch the presentations, enjoy each other’s company and celebrate each other’s work. To that end, the officers of the guild have worked with Redeemer church to utilize their upstairs meeting room for our monthly, general meetings and to watch the speaker’s presentation on a large screen TV.  See our new president’s note in this month’s newsletter on the specifics of the arrangement.

As an alternative to coming to Redeemer to watch the Zoom speakers, I’d like to encourage people to meet in small groups within each other’s homes for the general meetings via Zoom. This way we can communicate with you (via Zoom), share our news and accomplishments and enjoy the camaraderie that makes membership in a guild so nourishing.   To accommodate small groups of people, the Zoom presentations can be seen on your TV screen via an HDMI cable from your laptop/computer to the TV and selecting HDM1 or 2 from the INPUT screen. It's that simple!
