Welcome to the Venice Area Quilters' Guild Website


Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Our Holiday Dinner will take place on December 6, 2017 (one week earlier than usual).  Doors open at 5:00 and dinner buffet will be served promptly at 6:00.  Don't forget to bring a handmade or homemade qift for the Teacup Auction, an unwrapped "Toy for Tots" and money to purchase auction tickets.  We typically raise over $1200 at the auction for the South County Food Pantry.

Regular guild meetings resume January 24, 2018.

Informal Workshops are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 9-2 at the Venice Community Center.  There is no December informal workshop.  Visit the Informal Workshops page to see the schedule of activities.  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.
