The Omaha Quilters' Guild is one of the largest quilting organizations in the state with over 300 members devoted to the “the appreciation and preservation of quilts and the perpetuation of the art and the craft of quilt making through education and participation.”
The annual quilt show is an opportunity for members to display their art publicly.
In our three main philanthropic works, our Children's Emergency Fund supports children taken into protective custody during the holiday season. Community Connections matches member talents to produce quilts for a cause. Helping Hands meets the needs of charitable organizations, both great and small.
Our guild, established in 1975, is richly documented, and reminds us of our roots. The library is a wonderful source of inspiration for projects. Members enjoy popular quilting artists and authors during our programs. The annual Fall Retreat is a chance to get away from it all, with fabric and friends. Rising Stars gets members connected with other quilters, learning from each other. Small Groups are several friends sharing the joy of quilting together. Workshops taught by our speakers offer the opportunity to have hands on lessons. The Omaha Quilters' Guild offers something for quilters of all skill levels.
Some people are drawn to admire and collect quilts. Others enjoy the design and construction of the quilt itself. Friendships are easily formed because of a common love of quilts. Grab a friend and visit the Omaha Quilters' Guild at our next meeting to join in on the fun.
