Nebraska State Quilt Guild

"The purpose of the Nebraska State Quilt Guild shall be to gather together those individuals who share the common bond of a love for the quilter's art. This bond being one not exclusive to the makers of quilts, but inclusive of those who find interest and worth in the collection and preservation of our fiber arts and heritage. Nor shall there be an exclusion of contemporary work for truly, this is the formation of history and heirlooms for future generations."

NSQG 2018 Quilt Gatherings

Every year, each of the three NSQG Regions hosts a Quilt Gathering, bringing a variety of quilt programs to all areas of the state. These programs give us the opportunity to reach out to all quilters, whether they are members or not, and share our love of this enduring art. The Regions I and III events are over, but there is still one more to enjoy this year. Won't you join us?

A Special Request

from Janet Wilson, Past President and current NSQG Advisor

"I am asking for donations of sewing supplies, notions, and fabric for a missionary I know who ministers in Haiti.  He has ministered there for over 50 years. (He will be 90 years old in July!)

"His name is Rev. Max Manning and the name of his ministry there is Global Missions. He is headquartered out of Topeka KS. They have a couple of sewing schools in Haiti to teach people a trade. There would also be individuals that would receive some of these items if they have a great need for them.  They can also use old suitcases.

"I will have a collection box at the upcoming QuiltNebraska in July.  So those attending can bring any donations to the convention. People can also contact me if they have something but are not attending the convention.  I plan to take what does come in to Rev. Manning the middle of August.  I will be collecting beyond that time. Getting useful items to Max for Haiti is an ongoing project at our church.

"They fill the shipping container in Topeka where it is then taken to the port in Houston TX to be placed on a ship for Haiti.  I went to Haiti with Rev. Manning a number of years ago so I know that items sent get to the people they are intended for.

"My contact information:  Janet Wilson, Red Cloud, NE, cell 402-746-4052  email

Thank You,
Janet Wilson
