Welcome to the Venice Area Quilters' Guild Website

Guild meetings will resume September 25th.  In the meantime informal workshops are twice a month until September.  There is space to work on your own projects, catch up with and meet other members and have fun.  There will be more great boutique projects. 
Don't forget to check our Things To Do page for quilt shows, shop hops and other area happenings.

Did you renew your membership before heading north? Dues are due on June 1.

Raffle tickets for our 2020 show quilt are being distributed.  The quilt is quilted and looks lovely.  Mary Anne Rhodes, a long time guild member, made the blocks in and around 2009. The fabrics used are original from the 20's and 30's, with some reproduction fabrics. The patterns are from Jennifer Chiaverini's book Sylvia's Bridal Sampler, inspired by Elm Creek Quilts novels. Our quilt showcases 80 of the 140 traditional blocks.
We used current fabrics for the sash, borders, binding and back, and was long arm quilted. This quilt shows off the best from the 20th and 21st centuries of quilting, and celebrates 100 years of women's suffrage.
If you haven't received your tickets, check with your Circle Representative or email Becky Adam at raffle@vaqg.org.
