Summer is MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL TIME! Our annual membership drive has begun. While it doesn’t really end until the next drive begins, membership dues are “due” no later than our September meeting.
The purpose of this Guild shall be to preserve the heritage of quilting, to be a source of information and inspiration, to perpetuate a high quality of excellence in quilting and related arts, and to be a gathering for people with a common interest.
In the late 1970’s Helena Hibbs, a local quilt teacher, felt the need for quilters in Dallas and the surrounding areas to form a group so that they could quilt together and learn from each other. Since then, the Guild has grown to include well over 500 members. Today, the Quilter’s Guild of Dallas hosts an important annual quilt show, offers workshops and monthly meetings featuring nationally known speakers, awards annual grants for quilt-related projects, releases a monthly newsletter, and more!
Endowment Grant Application available annually
Do you know of an organization working to fund a quilt-related project? Since its inception, the QGD Helena Hibbs Endowment Grant has funded a wide range of quilt projects, ranging from oral history to antique quilt conservation to digitizing images of large collections.
