Welcome to North Idaho Quilters!
One of the many quilts entered in this years show.
THANK YOU to all who joined us for the 2017 North Idaho Quilters Quilt Show - it was a great time and we certainly appreciated all of the beautiful quilts that were on display.
A special thanks to Marianne Harwood, a beautiful display of her quilts greeting all who attended.
We would also like to acknowledge all of the volunteers who made this show possible. The Quilt Show committee as well as the many who volunteered to work a little or a lot. Thank you, it is said "It takes a village to raise a child", it also takes a village to present a quilt show. Without the efforts of many there would be no quilt show.
We invite you to come to join us. You’ll find us warm, welcoming and brimming with enthusiasm for our latest quilting projects. Our programs provide new learning opportunities and we share the joy of one another’s quilting accomplishments during our Show and Tell time. Our General Meetings are the fourth Monday of odd numbered months (January, March, May, July, September, and November) and are held at the Calum Shrine Club Event Center located at 1250 W. Lancaster Rd, Hayden, ID. Several times a year we host a nationally, regionally, or locally known speaker at our general meeting and often the speaker will present a workshop for guild members to participate in the following day. Guests are always welcome to join us at any meeting. A $10 non-member fee is assessed when a guest speaker is presenting to help defray costs.
We also have Activity Days where you can bring a project to stitch on (by hand or machine). These days are usually the second Saturday of even numbered months and are held at the American Legion Hall at 1138 E Poleline Ave., Post Falls, ID. We have an active Community Service group which meets on the second Tuesday of every month at Bear Paw Quilting, 600 W Kathleen Ave, #10, Coeur d'Alene, ID. There is no Community Service Meeting in July or December. Sometimes the meeting dates change, so check our calendar for current dates and time. The Guild hosts a Quilt Show for our community in June of odd numbered years. In order to encourage our youth and help them learn quilting skills, North Idaho Quilters offers a Kids Quilt Camp each summer.
The Guild is comprised of quilters from various communities located in Northern Idaho, Eastern Washington and Western Montana and has almost 200 members.
