The Hawaii Quilt Guild was established in the 80’s and is still going strong today. All in person events and meetings were suspended due to COVID like most of the world. We still are not meeting in person for any events. We are in contact and monitoring locations and will re-open activities when we are able.
We are a fiscal year organization and July is the beginning of our new year. Now is the time to join and become part of the Hawaii Quilting Ohana. As you have found our website, we also have a monthly newsletter and monthly zoom meeting you can participate in.
Our mission is to preserve the traditions, culture and history of quilting, and to promote the knowledge and understanding of the art of quilting through continuing education services for members, public education activities and community service projects. During COVID and over the past year, I’m proud to announce that our members donated hundreds of quilts to those in need throughout Hawaii and used their skills to make thousands of masks. Providing support throughout the community is a continuous effort always being worked on.
The board and many members helped establish us on facebook and create zoom meetings. With technology being such a big part of the quilting industry we are using this period of COVID recovery to bring our organization forward utilizing technology to educate our members and reach out to new members.
Please join us and learn about all the variety of quilting styles we have within our organization and share your knowledge and/or enthusiasm about quilting with us. By joining you will get the latest news on charity collections, block of the month club, quarterly challenges, and event plans like our 2021 Holiday Party. I look forward to getting to know you.
