Welcome to the Hawaii Quilt Guild. We are a well established Quilt Guild with approximately 200 members. Our members work with
all types of quilting including: traditional Hawaiian quilting, machine and hand quilting and modern quilting. Several of our members also teach various types of quilting at venues throughout Oahu.
Monthly membership meetings are held at the Temple Emanu-El located at 2550 Pali Highway on the fourth (not always the last) Monday of each month. Special meetings are held in June and December.
Visitors are always welcome to come and visit. We normally have a few announcements followed by a program; Show and Tell is another very popular part of our meetings. I am continually impressed by the creativity and artistry displayed.
Annual membership dues are $25. Many of our visitors have joined the Guild which allows them to receive a copy of our monthly newsletter; this newsletter contains all sorts of quilting information. We also host an annual Quilt Show which is held at the Honolulu Museum of Art School. This show is usually held around Mother’s Day in May, and is our gift to the community. Admission is free.
The Guild also sponsors quilting classes on a monthly basis. Priority is given to Guild members for enrollment, but members of the public are welcome if space is available. Our charitable activities are organized under Na Lima Aloha. Guild members donate quilted items to a host of local charitable organizations. Guild members also organize quilting bees at various locations across the island; usually there are multiple offerings every month.
E KOMO MAI. Welcome, please come visit and join us
