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.
Check out the Membership Page for information how to join.

Notes from SDQG President on the Spring Retreat April 20-22, 2018
Greetings South Dakota Quilters,
It’s time to start thinking about our Spring Retreat at Terra Sancta just outside Rapid City. After a cold, and for some, snowy winter, I am hoping for a nice spring rain.
Your board has been working hard to provide interesting classes for the retreat with LeAnn Baker from the Sewing Center in Rapid City on “Circular Motion”, Lesa Stephans with “Making Your Own Curves, and Patti Heinz with “Finley’s Fence” and “Geese That Fly Straight.” On Sunday morning, Ginny from Shanty Stitchers will be showing us how to do Hardanger embroidery and then will teach a full class in the fall in Huron.
Again on Friday night, the Board will provide entertainment at 7:00 and we will have show and tell at 8:00pm. Please remember to bring those new quilt tops or finished quilts, hand embroidery, wool projects and projects from last retreat. It is such fun to see everyone’s work.
The South Dakota Quilt Guild is again a sponsor for the South Dakota Public Broadcasting Saturday sewing and quilting programs. Please check out the SDQG ads and support the programs on SDPB
