Quilt Show


Welcome to the Chelmsford Quilter's Guild Web Site. We are a large group of quilters of all experience levels and many interests. We welcome you to learn more about us through the links to the left.

November 24th evening Meeting:

Pam Weeks, NEQM Curator - "The Story of the New England Quilt Museum"

Don't miss Pam Weeks, avid quilter, lecturer, author, historian and the Binney Family Curator of the New England Quilt Museum. She will share the history of the NEQM with a focus on the key role played by the New England Quilt Guild. The trunk show, from NEQM's permanent collection, is sure to be both educational and inspirational.
Since 1976 Pam has been quilting in both the traditional and art quilt worlds, but in 1991 she discovered a fascination with the history of this ancient art we all love. Her first book Civil War Quilts is about the quilts made for soldiers going off to war. Her historical research has included Jane Stickle, Potholder quilts, Signature quilts, and even the hundred year old story of the quilt-as-you-go method.
Pam's lecture is complimentary with CQG's Sustaining Guild membership at the NEQM.

More Before: Join Anne Gallo and Tina van Roggen at 6:00 pm in the church hall for an inspiring demonstration of "disappearing" blocks. Everyone is probably familiar with the "disappearing 9-patch" block. We will be showing the "disappearing hourglass" which turns a simple block into a complicated-looking star that is easy to make. We will also show other blocks that have been "disappeared" into other shapes and will have several hands-on things to try. There will be a handout.

Guests are always welcome to attend our guild meetings. Guest fees are $5 for nights when we have a speaker, $3 to attend other meetings. See the Calendar for this year's programs.
