The Omaha Quilters’ Guild has hundreds of members. In order for us to work together well as a whole, good lines of communication are key. In addition to face time at the meetings, the guild has the OQG Digest mailing list, this web site, a Corresponding Secretary to handle our post office box, and a member directory for members in our membership book and we are currently looking for a Newsletter editor. You can reach our Corresponding Secretary at email@example.com or PO Box 24614, Omaha, NE 68124-4614
The Omaha Quilters’ Guild published a monthly newsletter for members from September through June and once during the summer up until the summer of 2013. The purpose of the newsletter was to provide members with program information on upcoming meetings and workshops, local and regional quilting events, member activities and anything else pertinent to our guild and the promulgation of the quilting experience. At the current time, we are without a Newsletter editor and are depending entirely on the electronic media to keep in contact with our members.
The deadline for submission of articles was the Friday after the Guild meeting. Articles submitted via email would receive a confirmation REPLY. If you submitted an article via email and did not receive a reply within 4 days, you could contact the editors by phone to confirm your article had been received.
Generally, any articles of interest to the membership at large could be printed within space constraints. By using the newsletter for disseminating information instead of making announcements at the meeting, there was more time for other activities at our meetings. Photos welcomed!
If you are interested in the position of Newsletter Editor, please contact the President@omahaquiltersguild.org.
The archives will be presented here are ordered from newest to oldest. (Coming soon)

The Omaha Quilters’ Guild has had a website since 2002. Our goal is to provide a user-friendly, paperless method of accessing the most up-to-date information about our guild and its activities. The website has been designed to meet the needs of our members and includes not only information about the guild but links to local merchants, online vendors, local shows, and other quilting links. We believe in appreciating the art and craft of quilt-making as much and as frequently as possible! Visit our site often to find information on membership to our guild, the monthly meetings, fall and spring retreats, philanthropic activities and our quilt show.
Our website is handled and maintained by ETM Creative and content to be published should be sent to the email@example.com
