Welcome to Homemaker’s Country Quilters Website
Our guild was started in 1983 by Margot Carney with 23 charter members. We quickly grew to 85 active members and many associate members. We meet on the second Friday of the month from September through May from 9:30 AM – 12:00PM. Our meetings are held at the 4-H Center at 1015 Bridge Rd in Collegeville, PA. Our meeting starts with a short business meeting, a show and tell component and then a presentation. The presentation is by a quilt expert, a nationally know speaker or one of our guild members. Guests are welcome for a fee. The Dutch Lily is the inspiration for our logo.
Our current Executive Board members are: Co-Presidents – Pat Miesse and Barb Tudgay, Co-Vice Presidents – Jane Humay and Linda Brennan, Secretary – Dot Allison, Treasurer – Pat Cisek, and Membership – Sue MacFadden.
We celebrate all our quilting efforts every two years with a members’ quilt show. We are already making plans for the 2017 show, Quilts of Many Colors. It is scheduled for March 24-25, 2017. Save the date! Our quilt show chairs are Jane Humay, Dot Allison and Jeannie Flynn. A picture of our raffle quilt, is on the Quilt Show 2017 tab. Please check out our gallery of quilts from the 2015 and 2013 quilt shows, you will be inspired.
Our menu items show a wide variety of quilting talent. The Show and Tell tab you will see our current projects shown at each meeting. The Block of the Month tab you will see quilts made this year using the same pattern. However the color choices our members choose make the quilt look very different. The What’s New tab will tell you information about our speakers, workshop projects and other events sponsored by HCQ. Check that often for the most current information.
