The purpose of the guild is to preserve the traditions and history of quiltmaking; to foster an awareness of and be receptive to creative innovations in the art; to promote and sponsor interest and appreciation in all areas of quiltmaking among our members and the general public, and to foster fellowship and the exchange of ideas. How do you say all of that in one short sentence, To Educate and Entertain Quilters!
We are also involved in several quilting related events around the community. LVQG members are active in the Lodi fair hosting a quilt turning, volunteering in the quilting area of open class and providing security for the quilts that are entered in the the fair.
Among the benefits of membership is an annual multi-day fall retreat, twice yearly one-day retreats, a yearly workshop with a nationally known instructor and the LVQG Quilt Academy--all at nominal or reduced rates. All that and monthly meetings with great speakers fulfill the guild's mission to inspire and educate quilters.
