The Quilters Guild of Greater Kansas City joins this year with other regional guilds to present the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival.

Quilt Shows rely on Volunteers to keep the shows running. Our guild needs to provide volunteers for Preview Night, White Gloving, and Selling / Caring for the Guild’s Opportunity Quilt. To volunteer for White gloving click here. Sign-ups are by computer. You will need a password that was given at the guild meeting and can be found in the minutes. If you need to be reminded of it, please call or email Gretchen or Becky Ball. If you white glove for at least 2 hours our Guild will give a $5 voucher for a workshop next year.  Also, for every hour worked as a white glover, your name will be entered into a raffle for a new Pfaff Passport sewing machine.

To volunteer to help with the Opportunity quilt, talk with Molly Hundley.

Guild members also made small quilts to be sold at the Festival. Those should already be turned in.

Sarah Rathjen is coordinating the Guild quilts to be displayed at the Festival. Watch here for dates to bring quilts and for pick-up at the end of the show. Sarah will be accepting your quilts for the show in the Church parking lot on June 4th, from 9:30 to 10:30 A.M. If you cannot come at that time, please arrange for another guild member to bring it/them or call Sarah Rathjen for any other alternatives. They must be turned in by June 4th.

Quilts could also be entered into the judged section. Final date for entries was April 15th.

Registration is open for many, many excellent classes, trunkshows and events. For registration, click here.
