Guild Happenings . . .
The Guild is hosting a special Sew Day on Wednesday, October 11, at Traders Village RV Park Community Center, from 9am to 4pm. (The Community Center is just north of where you will see the RVs parked.) Join us for a fun day of sewing! Map
The speaker for the September 10 Guild Meeting is Teresa Duryea Wong, giving her lecture, The Calling of Quilt Collectors. (via ZOOM)
It’s hard to believe we’re already talking about the Last Things of 2023, but the last Day Retreat is coming up in October. It has become one of our favorite events offered by the Guild. The October Day Retreat is already full, but if you want to be on the Wait List, see Debra Ware.

Many speakers lead workshops on the Wednesday following the Tuesday General Meeting. Workshop location and time will be announced before each workshop.
In the early 1980s, Shirley Brix and Becky Zook gathered 75 students and began holding classes at the Fielder Museum to encourage quilters to form a guild and talk about opening a quilt shop. In August of 1984, the first meeting of the Guild was held at the First Christian Church, forming the Quilters’ Guild of Arlington, with 35 charter members.
The guild was organized as a 501(c)3 charitable organization to:
- preserve and encourage the art of quilting,
- provide instruction for Guild members,
- educate the public,
- and to promote a gathering of people with this common interest.
