North County Quilters' Association
We always welcome new members. There are no requirements and you need not be referred or sponsored by a current member. You will discover that we are a congenial group of quilters (both women and men) who love quilting and sharing our knowledge and skills. Our ages span from 20-something to 80-plus and our experience and skills range from beginner to expert and teacher.
Our annual dues are just $30/member and are due on July 1st each year. New members who join after January 1st, pay only $20 for their enrollment. Click HERE for a membership form.
Our monthly meetings consist of a presentation by a local or national quilting expert, opportunities for participation in drawings for the monthly fat quarter basket, block of the month, book of the month, mini quilts, as well as door prizes. We also have a white elephant table that contains many donated fabrics and patterns and notions for purchase. And of course, there is the camaraderie of fellow quilters and refreshments provided by our members!
As stated in our mission, the primary role of the NCQA is to support local charities through various fund-raising activities, including a quilt show and sale, and a raffle for our member-designed and made "Opportunity Quilt". We also encourage our members to make at least one "Good Cheer Quilt" per year (all fabric and batting is donated); these quilts are then donated to one or more local charities.
We also support several "Neighborhood Groups" that meet separately at different times and locations than our monthly meetings. These groups are involved in many different projects separate from but in conjunction with the guild. They also design and make quilts for our Quilt Show and Sale. Ask any member about joining a group!
The guild also arranges bus trips for our members and friends to go to quilt shows; one very popular show is the Road to California, which is held in January each year.
