About Us

Purpose: To encourage, promote and preserve the art of quiltmaking.

The Utah Quilt Guild:  The Utah Quilt Guild is a nonprofit organization formed in 1977 to encourage, promote and pre-serve the art of quilt making. The Utah Quilt Guild works to foster appreciation for fine quilts, sponsor and support quilting activities, teach quilt making, and preserve the history of quilts and quilt makers.  It is guided by Bylaws and Policies and Procedures.

"30 Years Strong... & Beyond" is a book about the creation of the UQG back in 1977 and the guild's activities through 2007.  It is a fairly large Adobe pdf file.  If you do not want to download it and would prefer to see a hard copy, please contact the UQG Librarian.


The guild is formed by combining all chapters and areas. It is governed by a board of elected and appointed officers and area representatives.  UQG members may belong to the guild without participating in any chapter or area, nor residing within an area served by the guild.

The Utah Quilt Guild is divided into geographic Areas, and the Areas into Chapters. Most Chapters meet regularly each month. A list of open Chapters and their representatives is published regularly. An annual meeting of the Guild is held each fall and includes a judged quilt show, merchants’ mall, and classes and lectures featuring both local and national teachers.  Attendance at Chapter, Area, or Annual meetings is completely optional, but is strongly encouraged! Interaction with other quilters is one of the great benefits of Guild membership.

 Twila Gutierrez- President
 Deborah Slechta - President Elect
 Leanna Stauffer - Past President
