Welcome Fellow Quilters,

This is an exciting time to be part of the South Dakota Quilters Guild.  As we move forward into the next several years, we face many challenges but also many rewards for being part of this guild.  The South Dakota Quilters Guild was formed in 1985 by a group of quilters who stated their purpose was “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.” To those purposes the guild has promoted local quilt projects, programs, charitable work and growth in quilting skills through classes and retreats.
The SDQG is now facing a crossroad. At the Fall Retreat in 2019, the guild voted to hold one guild sponsored retreat a year in a central location with the purpose of promoting all techniques and types of quilting. The guild members voted on proposals that they believed would best guide the guild into the future and preserve its existence.  At the one retreat a year, members will be able to sew on their own, take classes, be involved in demonstrations and discussions on quilting in its many facets.  The first retreat in this new format will be April 17-19, 2020 at the AmericInn in Chamberlain.  The new executive board is planning some exciting events that will enhance the quilting experience and draw the quilting community closer together.
If you would like to join in this new adventure with the South Dakota Quilt Guild, become a member.  Membership dues are $20 a year and the membership form is below. 

Sincerely in quilting,
Laura Kramp
President of the South Dakota Quilters Guild

Next Retreat is the Spring Retreat at the AmericInn in Chamberlain April 17-19, 2020

The South Dakota Quilters' Guild Executive Board meet recently to plan for the year's activities and for the April Retreat.  The officers enjoyed a quilting retreat along with their business meetings held at the Bulow House in Beresford, SD.  The group developed numerous ideas and activities for the next retreat and for the entire year.  We hope you will enjoy them as much as we did planning them.   

SDQG meets once a year in April at a central location in South Dakota. Meetings start Friday afternoon and conclude at noon on Sunday. Workshops, show & tell, trunk shows, block exchanges, fabric challenges, vendors, good food, and lots of socializing with fellow quilters are part of the retreats . Annual membership is $20.00 a year.
