The Chambersburg Quilt Guild is a non-profit organization that has been in existence for the past thirty years. From inception the membership has focused on a specific set of goals:
- Share ideas and knowledge
- Share quilts
- Learn and improve skills
- Learn to appreciate all facets of quilt making
- Enjoy the fellowship of anyone who loves the art of quilting
Members do not need to be quilters or quilt makers. We encourage anyone with an appreciation for this functional art form to come and join in the educational and creative environment created by this multifaceted and giving organization.
We meet on the second Saturday of the month from September to May at the Eugene C. Clark, Jr. Community Center (Rec Center), in Bard Hall, at 235 S. 3rd Street (click here for directions) in Chambersburg.
