“The purpose of the Crossroad Quilters Guild of Effingham, Illinois, is to perpetuate the art and love of quilting, to encourage a high quality of excellence of quilting, to preserve the heritage of quilting, to be a source of information and inspiration, and to coordinate an annual exhibition of this art form.”
About our guild :
The Crossroad Quilters Guild consists of a group of quilters, beginners to advanced, who are interested in learning more about the art of quilting. They are quick to share their knowledge, and eager to learn new skills, techniques, and ideas.
They are a compassionate group, who put there skills to work to improve the life of others… The group sponsors work days for Project Linus, and regularly donates quilts to the local WIC program, Valor quilts for veterans, as well as Doo-Rags for the Local Cancer Center.
Each September we hold the Crossroads Harvest of Quilts show, this year the show will be located at The Keller Convention Center in Effingham, IL. (more info)
