About: Guild Information
The Red River Quilt Guild was founded in 1984 and began with a few people gathering together the first Monday night of each month to quilt at The Yarn Shop, owned by Louise Sommerville. As the interest grew, Louise ran ads in the local newspaper and Rusty McCollough sent notices to Quilters' Newsletter, other quilting publications, and all news media within a sixty mile radius of Wichita Falls, inviting quilters to join them on Monday nights. From this small beginning, the quilt guild has grown to what it is today.
Our purpose is to preserve the heritage of quilting, to be a source of information and inspiration, to perpetuate a high quality of excellence in quilting and related arts, and to be a gathering of people with a common interest in quilting. Membership is open to any individual over the age of 12 who has an interest in quilts. Guests are welcome and after two visits we encourage you to become a member.
Dues are $25 a year, due in October of each year. Our fiscal year for dues is November 1 through October 31. To become a member, please attend our Guild meeting and fill out the membership form. For more information, contact email@example.com.
