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 picture of the Dutch Lily is the inspiration for our logo.
Our current Executive Board members are: Co-Presidents – Linda Carey and Nancy McCormack, Co-Vice Presidents – Angie Roman and Carol Singer, Secretary – Diane Bonck, Treasurer – Kathy Schuessler, and Membership – Joanne McColgan. Carol and Nancy are missing from the picture. Newsletter chair – Carol Olinick and Website chair – Jane Nase are also members of the Executive Board.
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. Our 2017 quilt show, Quilts of Many Colors, held in March 2017 was a huge success. Enjoy the gallery of quilts at the 2017 Quilt Show tab. 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.
