Welcome to the Venice Area Quilters' Guild Website

Our next evening Membership Meeting is September 28, 2016 at the Venice Community Center.  Doors open at 6:15 for socializing, visiting the library, signing up for classes and Quilt Escape and other guild activities.  That evening we will be sharing our favorite quilting tips and showing off our recent projects.  Come prepared to share ideas and show off your summer projects.  It will be an evening of getting to know other members and lots of fun.

Bottini Aspens Do you have photos that you envision as quilts but don't know where to start?  Sharon Bottini's Beginning Landscape class is just what you need.  This quilt was inspired by a photo of a stand of aspens.  There is room in the September 28th class.  Visit the Classes section for more information.



Informal Workshops are held on the 2nd Wednesdays of each month from 9-2 at the the Venice Community Center.   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.
