Northern Star Quilters’ Guild (NSQG) grew out of two successful Quilt Shows put on for fundraising purposes for the American Field Service of Somers, NY in 1979 and 1980. The obvious interest shown led to the founding of NSQG in June of 1981. An annual Quilt Show became an integral part of our activities and the charitable contribution continues with the recipient changing each year by membership vote.
We are a not-for-profit(501c3) corporation whose purpose is to promote the art of quilting. Nationally known guest speakers and workshops are provided 5 months of the year; in-house educational programs are offered in the weather-problem months of winter; there are no meetings in July or August; the first weekend in May is reserved for the Quilt Show.
Our diverse membership of around 200 traditional, contemporary, and art quilters spans the ability range from novice to professional and comes from a wide geographical area that includes NYC, Westchester, Putnam and Rockland counties in NY, Fairfield and Litchfield counties in CT as well as some from further afield.
We meet at 7 pm on the third Tuesday of each month at Kennedy Catholic School, located at 54 Route 138, Somers, NY.
We welcome new members to join us at any time with the promise of friendship and sharing for which quilters are known.
