ABOUT RIVER CITY QUILTERS' GUILD


History: The River City Quilters' Guild (RCQG) was established in 1977 with 20 members. The Guild now boasts over 200 members, with new members joining monthly.

Goals: We promote quilting and the use of textiles, within the Guild itself and with the community at large. We contribute to the knowledge of quilting techniques, patterns, history, and quilt making by providing educational meetings, fun, and fellowship.
