Valley of the Mist Quilters Guild


Welcome to the Valley of the Mist Quilting Guild. New Year, new ideas, new members, new journeys and new adventures from the lines of a pattern to the final stitches a quilter envisions. Intertwined through the complex quilt blocks, appliques, and various scraps of fabric turned into memorable tributes and hours of creations that only a quilter could imagine. Idle hands make no progress but the machines and hands of a quilter help stitch and spread creations of love with every pull of the thread. “Blankets wrap you in warmth, quilts wrap you in love,” unknown author. We have an extensive history of local community philanthropy - you can see more under that tab. Thank you to all of our members for spreading lots of joy and love this past year.

We are at the mid way point in the year and have had wonderful teachers and classes. We have many special events coming up thru September. We are busily working on the October 5th Quilt Show, we will ‘kick it back’ in November with a trunk show from some of our own members, and in December, we PARTY! Check out all of these events under “Speakers and Classes” and “Upcoming Events”.

If you are in search of a fulfilling and worthwhile hobby come out and visit our guild.

Here’s what is happening at our Monthly Guild Meeting in August:


Philanthropy Sew-In

Tuesday August 14, 2019 6:15 PM -9:00 PM

Everyone bring their machines, or come to iron or rotary cut. We will be joining strips to make 9 1/2’” railroad blocks. We will hopefully have enough blocks for several philanthropy quilts. More information to come.

President’s Message

Welcome to the Valley of the Mist Quilters Guild website, we hope after browsing you are inspired to learn more, attend a meeting and maybe become a member! It s our goal to educate and encourage quilters of all ages and all experience levels. We work with several charities, make great friends and have a lot of fun in the process. We have some wonderful events you won’t want to miss out on in the 2019 calendar year! We also offer a few fun monthly activities and drawings.

I began my journey as a quilter in 2013. I have always sewn mostly curtains, a few odds and ends and of course Halloween costumes for the kids. When I found quilting, I fell head over heels and jumped in with both feet, and have never looked back! I’m learning every day and enjoying every step. I’m just having so much fun! I’m honored to be president for the 2019 year and I’m so excited for all the plans in store, together we can accomplish anything. Come and sew with us, we would love to have you!

Janice Quackenbush, President 2019

Inspiration for the Month:

“any time women come together with a collective intention, it’s a powerful thing. whether it’s sitting down making a quilt, in a kitchen preparing a meal, in a club reading the same book, or around the table playing cards, or planning a birthday party; when women come together with a collective intention, magic happens.” phylicia rashad
