ABOUT THE GUILD


History

Lincoln Quilters Guild was organized March 13, 1973, at the home of Mary Ghormley, in Lincoln, NE.  The purpose was to promote quilting and to learn more about it through study and sharing.  About 25 persons attended the first meeting.
Four officers were elected:
President - Louise Howey
Vice President - Mary Ghormley
Secretary - Betty Voss
Treasurer - Hazel Meyers

Our Mission

The purpose of LQG is:
to impart knowledge of the art and craftsmanship associated with quilting and patchwork;
to further interest and encourage men and women in the performance of these arts;
to exhibit fine examples of quilts and patchwork in appropriate public exhibitions held from time to time; 
to educate, learn, preserve and pass along whatever information exists about quilts and patchwork of past and present;
to afford an opportunity to the general public to appreciate quilting and allied arts; and 
to exchange knowledge and information in these arts among members of the Guild.
