About Us

The Northwest Suburban Quilters Guild is primarily made up of individuals from the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago who share a passion and appreciation for the art of quilting. In recent years, since the pandemic, our membership has expanded to include people from across the United States, Canada and around the Globe!

Our Guild’s mission is to foster the art of quilting and to encourage a high standard of design and technique in all of quilting’s various forms. We do this through our meeting programs, educational workshops, our various communication avenues (newsletters, websites, social media) and special events such as our Winter Picnic, Retreats and our Biannual Quilt Show!

Consider joining us for one of our local or on-line meetings! Our Guild meets monthly on the third Thursday of each month (except December) either in person or on Zoom. All meetings begin at 7PM. In person meetings are held at : Rolling Meadows Community Center (3705 Pheasant Drive, Rolling Meadows, Illinois) with doors open at 6:30pm and Zoom meetings are opened up at 6:45pm. In June 2023 we are having a special event for our meeting and it will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Schaumburg, please note our alternative days for that event. All times are Central Standard Time (CST).

Members are Free and Guests are $10 when we have a speaker, $5.00 for meetings without a speaker. Guests may attend 2 meetings per Membership Year.
