The UQG is divided into geographic areas and the areas into chartered chapters. Newcomers are welcome at open chapter meetings. Meeting place and times are available under Quilt Groups. Membership in the UQG is open to anyone interested in quilts and quilt making. Annual membership dues are $20.00.
The benefits of membership include: a subscription to the Beeline newsletter (which is online); discounted entrance and workshop fees at UQG sponsored events; access to resource teachers; discounts at local UQG sponsoring quilt stores; and the opportunity to interact with over a thousand dedicated quilters!
The Beeline, published eleven times a year, includes area and chapter activities, articles about and by local quilters, dates and times for upcoming quilt shows, contests, patterns, tips and reviews.
An annual “Quilt Festival” for the entire UQG is held each fall and includes a judged quilt show, workshops with local and national teachers and a merchant’s mall. The UQG also sponsors other quilt shows, workshops and lectures during the year. These will be listed in teh newsletter.
As a non-profit organization, the UQG and its chapters are involved in many different community service projects. Our members are so giving of their time, supplies and talents. Quilters are a special unique breed of people.
