Learn to Quilt
You’ve come to the right place if would like to learn to quilt or better your existing skills. The Mississippi Valley Quilters Guild is home to more than 300 quilters of varying skill levels, so you’ll fit right in if you’re a newbie or if you’ve won a few blue ribbons.
The Mississippi Valley Quilters Guild offers classes and program lectures featuring regional and national speakers. The Guild also offers Saturday Workshops taught by members where quilters can learn new skills like free motion quilting, paper piecing or even how to make an apron.
Beginners are also welcome to attend Charity Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the second Thursday of every month at the Deere-Wiman Carriage House 817 11th Ave., Moline, IL. Donna Lanman, who won Best of Show at the 2012 Great River Quilt Show and is the Charity Committee Chair, is happy to teach any new quilters who volunteer to make quilts for our charitable projects.
Beginners in their 20s, 30s, or 40s can join other young quilters at the Next Generation Sit-n-Sew. Contact Heather Todd for time and place of Next Generation Sit-n-Sew meetings.
