Welcome!


Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.

Happy Spring to all of you!

Now that the risk of bomb cyclones and blizzards is probably over for the winter, the Guild is bringing in speakers for the monthly programs for April and May.

For April, please join us at Redeemer Lutheran Church at 7:00 pm on April 8th for a program by Ann Van Thomme, one of the owners of Off The Rails Quilting, a quilt shop in Bonderant, IA. Ann's program is titled "Stash Busting 101". Visit the shop's website at: https://www.offtherailsquilting.com

In May, the featured speaker will be Amy Healy from Wise Monkey Quilting, a quilt shop she and her husband have had in Denison, IA since 2015. Check out their website: https://www.wisemonkeyquilting.com and you can also find her shop on Facebook.

Be sure to take a look at the current newsletter to catch up on our Guild's other activities.





Our February Guild meeting was cancelled due to bad weather, so it will be good to get together on March 11th at Redeemer Lutheran Church.

The program for the meeting will be Quilt Feud. Be a part of a team that comes up with the most winning answers and compete for prizes.

If you haven't paid your dues for 2019, you can pay them without a late fee at the March meeting.

Unfortunately, the March newsletter is not available under "current newsletter" at this time. We'll keep trying to make it available.

Here's hoping for better weather for the upcoming meeting.
