Calling All Small Groups!

The International Quilt Study Center & Museum invites Guild members and their friends to participate in Quilts for Community. In Quilts for Community, we provide your group members with a space to meet and work, free museum admission for the day and signage to explain your group’s purpose. In exchange, IQSCM visitors will have the benefit of observing quilting and quiltmaking activities first hand and up close.

Individuals or small groups are also invited to participate in Open Sew. Open Sew gives quilters a beautiful, open space to work while meeting new friends.

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please give us a call at 402-472-6549.
