The Palmetto Quilt Guild, Incorporated is a South Carolina nonprofit corporation dedicated to promoting and preserving the art of quilting through our educational and charitable activities.
Our Purpose: Promote and preserve the art of quilting; Educate the membership on the history of quilting, its intricacies and ongoing evolution, and provide the opportunity for education, communication and participation to enhance the member’s enjoyment in the art of quilting; Promote the art and craft of quilting to the general public by increasing awareness of quilt history, design, and preservation through education and exhibits.
We have 10 membership meetings a year, which are open to the public, and feature nationally-known speakers who share their quilting knowledge and skills through our workshop program. Members get together more informally through our various Bees, and to increase awareness in the quilting arts, The Guild presents a judged Quilt Festival with over 150 quilts on display.
Our Community Service Program supports our Lowcountry community by making charity quilts which are donated to local nonprofit organizations who provide relief to the poor, the distressed, the underprivileged, the elderly and veterans or advocate for families suffering from domestic violence, rape or child abuse. Our Outreach Program offers educational programs and workshops to local schools, senior living facilities and veteran groups.
The Palmetto Quilt Guild offers a wonderful opportunity for beginning to experience quilters to share a common passion for the art of quilting.
