About the NIQ Guild
The North Idaho Quilters guild has been in existence since 1995 and is comprised
of quilters from various communities located in the Idaho Panhandle and eastern
Washington. Our guild holds general membership meetings six times a year on the
fourth Monday of the odd months—January, March, May, July, September and
November. Many general membership meetings feature guest quilting artists who
share their talents and skills, as well as the gorgeous quilts they have made.
Often a guest speaker will conduct a quilting workshop that is open to guild
also meet on the second Saturday of even-numbered months for a fun day of
sewing, visiting, and a wonderful potluck lunch. Members that attend Activity
Day may, if they choose, participate in Community Service sewing projects for
charity. Among the Charities that have received our quilts include Mary's House,
Children's Village, Birthright, Cancer Center, Palliative Care, Family Shelters,
Ambulance Services, and Fire Departments.
Our guild sponsors a quilt show every other year
with our next show June of 2015. The Quilt show is a great opportunity for the
community to enjoy the talents of area quilters and for local quilters to
showcase their craft. Entrants do not have to be a member of NIQ to participate
in the show.
We encourage both beginning and experienced quilters to join us for our
activities. Our mission is to promote quilting and improve quilting skills among
guild members. Annual membership dues are $20.00.
