The South Dakota Quilt Guild welcomes you.
Our members live throughout South Dakota,
and if you are a quilter and would like new
experiences, learning, and exciting
opportunities you are encouraged to join us.


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.
