                 Fall Retreat

The South Dakota Quilt Guild Fall Retreat in Huron September 21-23 was enjoyed by members who commented on how relaxing, entertaining, and fun it was.  The Huron Area Quilt Guild welcomed us to Huron and provided wonderful door prizes, fun "Turkey" treats, and a very entertaining  Bed Turning after the Saturday evening banquet.  

The Scrappy Woven Star class members  commented very positively about their experience.  Thank you Nancy for teaching and sharing your experience and knowledge with everyone.  

Ginny from Shanty Stitchers was willing again to share her expertise in Hardanger in a Sunday morning class.  It was a bit of a challenge for participants, but with Ginny's expert guidance great progress was made which lead to a call for another class at the next retreat called "Hardanger Part Two!!!

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.

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.
