Workshops With National Presenters

Iowa Quilters Guild members have opportunities throughout the year to take workshops with top national and regional presenters.  We strive to arrange programs and workshops that cover a broad range of quilting techniques and topics.

Time To Finish Projects

Our annual Fall Retreat, held in November, is a 3-day event designed to help our members finish projects, share ideas, and learn from each other.  Of course, we always find time to do a little shopping and a whole lot of eating.

Silent Auction

Iowa Quilters Guild members donate items for the Silent Auction/Buy It Now area of the Reiman Gardens Quilt Show.  In 2012, the Silent Auction items generated ove $500 for the Guild.

Show Winning Quilts

Iowa Quilters Guild is filled with many talented quilters who enter their quilts in shows across the state and nation.  Marilyn Cox's applique quilt won a blue ribbon at the Iowa State Fair. Want to see more award-winning quilts?  Check out our photo gallery, or you can read all about them in our quarterly newsletter.  Or better yet, become a member and see the quilts during our show-n-tell.

Making Projects Together

IQG Members worked together to make Yo-Yo pins as give-aways at the Reiman Garden Show.  Show Chair, Libby Steinfeldt, plans a craft item each year to give away to show visitors.  In 2012, over 2500 visitors attended the show.

Iowa Quilters Guild Mission:

Promoting the art of quilting throughout Iowa

Iowa Quilters Guild, Inc. was organized as a non-profit organization in August 1979 for the purpose of promoting the art of quilting. Dues are $20.00 per year, payable after July 1. The year starts each September 1. The Guild meets four times a year, usually in September, November, March, and July. The Newsletter is published one month before each meeting and the annual Directory in December. This meeting/newsletter schedule is subject to change.

Documenting Quilting Groups Across Iowa

Come join us in an exciting project! Iowa Quilters Guild has an initiative to document all of the different quilting groups in Iowa. We will be compiling a list of the names and towns of all of these different groups. Are you a small group or bee? Are you an incorporated guild with many members? How often and where do you meet? The quilting groups in Iowa have grown over the years as interest in quilting was revived in the bicentennial year of 1976. Iowa Quilters Guild would like to document these changes and provide your guild information on our website to help you attract new member. Please send any guild information to:
