"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."

It's a Quilters Day Out!

Each of the three NSQG Regions periodically 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. This time, it's Region I hosting an event on April 29th. You'll find all the details on the event poster. (Click here for the full sized pdf version.)
