The Quilt Guild of Metro Detroit was established in 1980 to promote cooperation and interchange of ideas among those who are engaged or interested in quilting; to stimulate an interest in quilting; to promote and advance the art of quilt making; and to present educational programs and services in the design and techniques for quiltmaking.

We meet the third Tuesday of every month from September through May (except December) at 7:00 pm at:

Redeemer United Methodist Church, 20571 Vernier Rd, Harper Woods, MI.

Doors open at 6:15 pm so that you can visit our extensive library and meet with other members. Membership is $30 per year and includes 6 issues of our guild newsletter, “Patches & Pieces” (We no longer send out a printed newsletter. It is digital only). A fee of $5.00 is charged for each guest.
