Venice Area Quilters Guild

VAQG Circles


Our guild of 300+ members includes many mini-groups or as we call them “Circles”. Circles are formed based on friendships, common interests or even geography.

Several Circles now have room for additional members:

Sandpipers (Meets at Lemon Bay Park 1st and 3rd Thursdays)
Sue Lynch is starting a new circle for those in Bay Indies.

Circles also support the guild by greeting new members at our meetings. Check the list on our Members Only page, to see when your Circle is scheduled to greet at meetings.



Friends are like stars,


You don’t always see them


But you always know they are there!!!
