Our purpose is to encourage a wider appreciation of quilting,
to raise and maintain standards of design,
individual ideas and expression, and to keep
interest in quilting alive. We do this by promoting
local quilt projects, programs, charitable work, classes
and a biennial quilt show for the public.
We'd love to have you join!
South Dakota Quilters Guild meetings are held around
the state. Meetings are held in April and September
with workshops, show and tell, block exchanges,
trunk shows, demonstrations, good food,
chocolate, and fun.
Annual membership is $20, which includes a newsletter
with SDQG news, articles from local guilds,
a calendar of quilting events, discounted prices
for workshops and more.
