Arapahoe County Quilters
We've successfully held our events online since April, 2020: guild meetings, workshops, community sew days and more. We held our book sale online. We have occasional drive throughs at our meeting location to drop off and pick up projects with our various committees. Our plans for 2022 include a mix of online and in person meetings. In online meetings everyone has a front row seat through Zoom and we have many new members who live outside of the Denver area. Of course, we miss gathering in person, so we've schedule several online meetings, workshops and special events this year as we work through capacity restrictions still in force at our normal meeting location. Please join us in 2022!
Monthly Guild Meetings
Members attend free each month as we gather for fun, friendship and creativity. Programs feature national and local speakers who inspire and educate us. Twice a year or so, we celebrate with potlucks.
Many of our speakers also teach workshops in a variety of styles, skills and techniques. Members may access advance registration at discounted rates before non-members can register.
Workshops are scheduled mostly for Saturdays to allow our working members to participate.
We have a private Facebook group for ACQ members. Ask questions, provide tips, post photos of your quilts, sell or swap quilty items, and share other quilt-related news. Must have a Facebook account. Members: request access.
These vary from year to year, but in 2022 we have a Quilt Challenge, a UFO challenge, a block swap. And we continue our twice monthly online Friday night Sewcial and online Community Sew Days for Charitable Quilts! Got ideas? We'd love to hear them.
Quilt Show Every Two Years
ACQ hosts the Festival of Quilts every other year. The next quilt show has been postponed from June 2021 to a date to be announced.
New Member Tea
Hosted in the Spring, the tea provides an opportunity to meet other new members and ACQ leadership.
ACQ Views keeps members informed about guild meetings, workshops, activities and special events.
Show and Tell
A highlight of our monthly meetings is show and tell when Members (and guests) display their quilts—inspiration galore!
