Valley Quilters' Guild
The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild is more than just a club, we
are a diverse group with more than 200 members from all areas of
interest and all quilting skill levels. Members include
quilters, collectors of quilts, quilting teachers, designers and
those simply interested in the art and craft of quilting. Our
members come from throughout the Miami Valley Region of
Southwest Ohio – the Dayton/Springfield Metro area including
suburbs and communities such as
Huber Heights, Englewood, Tipp City, Vandalia, Kettering,
Oakwood, Beavercreek, Xenia, Fairborn, and Yellow Springs
in Montgomery, Clark, Greene, and Preble counties and beyond.
Our members have varied interests: traditional quilts and fabric
art - hand piecing and machine work - long-arm machine quilting,
home machine quilting and, of course, hand quilting.
As do other quilt guilds, clubs, and groups in Ohio,
the Miami Valley Quilters' Guild provides quilters with
education and instruction through classes and workshops;
inspiration and growth through meetings featuring accomplished
quilters, quilt designers, and quilting teachers; fellowship and
support through meetings, retreats, shows, programs, our
newsletter, and our website; and encouragement and recognition
through quilt shows, show-and-tell sessions, challenges,
charitable activities, and other events. We join other Ohio
quilt guilds in promoting the history and tradition of quilting
and embrace all quilting techniques, styles, and methods.
The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild proudly presents
recent examples of quilting by its members in a biennial quilt
