Welcome to the Venice Area Quilters' Guild Website

Join us for the October Guild meeting on Wednesday October 25th.  The doors open at 6:15 for socializing and business.  The formal meeting starts at 7:00.

Our guest speaker will be Florida Fiber Artist Karen Stockwell.  Karen will explain the mysteries of "Round Robin" quilts - what tStockwellhey are, how to start a group and share some interesting "rules" for the quilt and group.  Visit Karen's website to learn more about Karen and to see her wonderful work.

Don't forget to bring your quilts for "Show and Tell".  The October meeting is the last day to pay your dues to be eligible to hang a quilt on our 2018 Quilt Show. There are openings in Karen's Double Wedding Ring Quilt class on October 25th.  Learn to make this traditional quilt in a whole new way.

Informal Workshops are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 9-2 at the Venice Community Center.  Visit the Informal Workshops page to see the 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 our guild meetings.   The Community Service committee is always looking for donations of fabric suitable for childrens quilts - bright solids and fun themes.
