The April 26-28, 2019 Spring Retreat Information is now available. Please check the 2019 Spring Retreat page for information and the registration form.
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 26-28, 2019 in Pierre
I look out the window and see all the snow and am having trouble visualizing spring. However, we do have a retreat in the planning stages for the end of April in Pierre.
I hope you all have had a great winter to sew and complete the project that were started. I have four started projects but nothing finished.
At our last retreat we discussed the future of our state guild since our attendance and income are declining. We sent a letter all members asking for opinions and suggestions.
Thank you to all that responded. Consensus was that all members needed to vote on the future on the guild so a vote will be held at the Spring Retreat. A ballot and information on how to vote will be mailed later to all members.
We need members to come and enjoy themselves and not be afraid to volunteer for the officer positions that are open. Please consider an officer position.
There will be a social on Friday night with an activity. Would anyone like to lead the fun time? Please call me at the phone number listed under the officer’s section.
Also, please bring your finished or unfinished projects for show and tell at 8:00 on Friday night.
I will leave you with this:. I called a friend this morning and was greeted with “The funny farm where there are more nuts than squirrels.”
Hope to see everyone at the spring retreat in Pierre.
