Welcome to the Venice Area Quilters' Guild Website

Enjoy the summer, join the fun at the informal workshops and finish your quilts for the 2018 Quilt Show.
Regular meetings and classes resume on September 27th.

Have you joined the 2017 Row by Row Experience? Do you still have some of last year's Rows in the UFO pile? Sign up for our September 27th class for some creative and inspiring ideas for quilts as well as "beyond the row" ideas. Turn those UFO Rows into jackets, place mats, aprons and more. Join our Row by Row experts Margaret and Ginny for a fun class. Need Row patterns, there are eight participating shops just within a hour's drive from Venice. 
Visit the Row By Row Website  to learn more and locate participating shops and check out Ginny's RxR BLOG.


Informal Workshops are held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month from 9-2 at the Venice Community Center.  Visit the Informal Workshops page to see the summer schedule of activities.  The Venice Community Center is nice and cool, come and work on your own projects or Boutique items!

Our ongoing Community Service project  is to make nap quilts for every child entering the Head Start program in south Sarasota County.  The quilts were delivered in August, but you can still turn in quilts at any informal workshop.   The Community Service committee is always looking for donations of fabric suitable for childrens quilts - bright solids and fun themes.

Our Treasurer points out that when you mail to the guild Post Office Box, you can save a stamp by combining all of your mail (membership, class enrollment or Quilt Escape) into one envelope.  You can also write one check for the total if you prefer.
