OUR PURPOSE

The Twin Rivers Quilters Guild is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the art of quilting. Chartered in 1983, we became a chapter of the National Quilting Association in 1990.

Our guild promotes the art of quilting by educating and supporting quilters. We increase community awareness of the art of quilting by sponsoring a biennial quilt show and participating in other local events. Members show their projects at our monthly business meetings. The guild also provides donations and assistance to multiple community organizations.
