The Hawaii Quilt Guild was established in the 1984.  In 2024, we will be celebrating our 40th anniversary.  We currently meet at the Toho No Hikari Temple (3510 Nuuanu Pali Drive) on the fourth Mondays of each month (with the exception of December).

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.  Our members are dedicated to providing quilts, pillowcases, bags to various organizations within our community.  We are also involved in the Shoe Box Project where members are sewing skirts, dresses, shorts, and wash cloths for the third world countries who are in need of the basics.  The support is a continuous effort by the generosity of all members.

We invite you to join us in this collaborative effort to spread our talents.  Please join us and learn about all the variety of quilting styles we have within our organization and share your knowledge and enthusiasm about quilting.  As a member, you will get the latest news on charity collections, block of the month club, quarterly challenges, and our yearly events.  Hope to see you at an upcoming meeting!
