What is the difference between a ‘Chapter’ and ‘Guild’

Chapters‘ meet every Tuesday morning* This is the more intimate group where you meet fellow quilters that live in your neighborhood.  The ‘Guild’ meets once a month on the first Tuesday in the evening and generally features a Visiting Artist that gives members an exposure to National Speakers.

Everyone joins the ‘guild‘,  and you join one ‘chapter‘ near you.

* With some exceptions on Tuesday afternoon and Monday evenings.

Quilt Shows

QGOTV quilt shows are held every other year.  Members in good standing are invited  to enter a quilt in the quilt show.
