The purpose of the Guild shall be to promote the various aspects of the art of quilting, to educate and develop the skill levels of the members, and to make a contribution to the Community, relative to quilt making. — By-Laws of the Shenandoah Valley Quilters Guild
In our recent 2022 quilt show, 192 quilts were given for charity (pictured above), bringing the total given to 2717 quilts to three local hospice organizations since 2011. We have made numerous patriotic-themed quilts for veterans in hospice care.
The charity service at SVQG is accomplished by a team effort. One person may sew the quilt top while another will quilt it and yet another person binds it.
Our goal for members is to participate which is why the team effort works for those not wanting to commit to make a whole quilt.
