Lake Area Quilters’Guild

This exhibition is dedicated in memory of Lake Area Quilters’ Guild member Janice Marie Doane.

The Lake Area Quilters’ Guild was formed in February of 1995 through the organization of founding member Elaine LaPierre. The Guild has offered classes, demonstrations, and programs during their meetings. Individuals work on their own projects and shared projects that have been given to various community organizations and social projects.

In 1999 the Lake Area Quilters’ Guild presented their first quilt show and became a biannual show. Each year the Guild becomes more sophisticated in the programs and its activities. The development is credited to the diverse group of women who share their talents and love for the art of quilting.

The Guild meets on the first Thursday of each month. New members are always welcome.

We encourage you to view the gallery in person to appreciate the detail and talents of these fiber artists. You can see them in person Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm.
