The Venice Area Quilters Guild is a 501(C)(3) not-for-profit organization supported by our members and by our biennial quilt show.  

Every two years, the VAQG members come together to promote the love of quilts, to encourage and preserve the art of quilts and quilting, and to share friendship as well as knowledge with others.  It is one of the most exciting events we hold and showcases a wide variety of quilts made by our members. 

2024 Quilting by the Gulf quilt show was our 20th quilt show and the guild  celebrated it's 40th anniversary. 

Our gorgeous original-design raffle quilt was entitled,  "Sunshine & Sea Breezes." This custom design quilt measured 90" x90" and featured a Mariners Compass in the center that was surrounded with art deco borders and was all custom quilted.
