In 1993 a group of quilters, who wanted to share their love of quilting, formed the Kokomo Piecemakers Quilt Guild (KPQG). The guild’s purpose is to promote education, preservation, shows and exhibits in the field of quilt making.
KPQG meets the fourth Tuesday of each month, except it is usually the second Tuesday of the November and December months, at 7:00 pm. Please check the meeting location and date before attending a meeting
Everyone who enjoys quilts and quilting is welcome. Interested quilters may attend two meetings as a guest before becoming a member. Membership is $30 per year for adults and $5 for juniors ages 9 – 16.
Programs are presented by owners of area quilt shops, by members who share their expertise, and by outside speakers who are authorities on a variety of quilt related topics. Recent speakers include Elizabeth Burns, Mary Buvia, Cathy Franks, Mary Huey, Sue Nickels, and Kathleen Tracy.
KPQG offers an annual community service project. Currently, members of the guild make quilts to donate to the Kokomo Healthy Families, the Kokomo Police Department, and the Jackson Street Commons Veterans Home.
Other quilting opportunities the guild offers to members are participation in challenges, block-of-the-months, fabric exchanges and workshops. Open sews are offered usually once a month on a Saturday.
The KPQG sponsored 9th biennial quilt show, Quilts Along the Wildcat is to be determined.
