FOOTHILLS QUILTERS GUILD
PO Box 3052, Shelby NC 28151
Chartered June 1986
The Foothills Quilters Guild was chartered in 1986 by a group of approximately 20 women
who wanted to gather together to share their love of quilting. The guild has grown over
the years and today there are approximately 100 members who live in nearby counties in both
North Carolina and South Carolina. In general, the guild meets at 7:00 P.M. on the third
Thursday of each month at Ascension Lutheran Church, 300 North Lafayette Street, Shelby,
North Carolina. The exact day may change due to holidays and the scheduling of guest speakers.
The dues are currently $20 per year. Visitors are always welcome and the guild loves to have
new members join. The members participate in a variety of activities including workshops,
splinter groups, fat quarter swaps, demonstrations and trips to Paducah and
other conferences. The guild has service projects where members make and contribute quilts
to local charities. The guild sponsers a biennial quilt show, the last show in 2007
had over 130 quilts entered. The next show will be in, October 2009.
The guild maintains a library where a large selection of
quilting related material, both printed and video, can be checked out by the members.
