A group of quilters met to discuss forming a quilting guild in the Janesville area. In March 1980, the first meeting was held at Hedberg Public Library, with approximately 20 people in attendance. Bylaws & a Constitution was adopted by the following members: Lynda Short, Sue Thornton, Mary Jane Tiegs, Peggy Nelson, Rosemary Knoll, Lucille Boston, Elaine Fischer and Ruby Bernstein.

We are a Non Profit Organization
We strive to foster the Art of Quilting through educational efforts, maintaining high standards of design and workmanship through cooperation and the interchange of ideas and instruction methods and techniques.
Our primary goals of sharing quilting skills, remembering the history of quilting and learning new techniques are reached through member involvement in Study Groups as well as presentations by outside speakers.
Our year begins in September and the annual fee is $25.
We offer reduced rates for special circumstances, which are noted on the registration form.
