Officers & Chairwomen

It takes a lot of help to operate our guild

Many Hands Make Our Guild Stronger

It takes many helping hands to operate the Iowa Quilters Guild. With membership and events scattered around the state, the Guild Officers and Committee Chairwomen collaborate remotely and electronically to stay organized and meet deadlines. Would you be willing to help as an Officer or Committee Chair? We'd love to have you.

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.
