The Black Hills Quilters Guild In Action

This area of the Quilt Show will feature the activities of The Black Hills Quilters Guild. Please stop by to look at the quilts for sale, explore the art of quilt making, and learn about the many ways our guild contributes to the community.

  • Project Warmth will offer a variety of quilted items for sale. The proceeds of these sales help purchase batting, fabric, and quilting services for the quilts that are donated to a variety of local charities.
  • Open Sew offers people a chance to sit and sew for a few minutes or a few hours. Learn the basics of quilting. Machines, supplies, and helpers are provided by the BHQG.
  • Caring Heart Quilts are given to our quilt guild sisters who have experienced a serious health concern or lost a spouse or child. Small Thinking of You (TOY) blocks are sent to our quilt guild sisters when they are sick or have suffered a loss or sometimes just to say Thank You. Examples of both of these types of quilts will be displayed.
  • Boots for Troops are Christmas Stockings that are filled with snacks and small gifts and sent to our deployed Troops during the holidays. Examples of these stockings will be displayed.
  • Pet Beds are made with scraps of fabric and batting that are leftover from making quilts and are donated to the local Humane Society. This keeps these materials out of landfill and provides a soft place to sleep for the animals at the shelter. 
  • In Memory Displays honor our quilt guild sisters who have passed away during the previous year. We thank them for their contributions to quilting and to our guild. These will include a display of some of thier quilt creations. 
  • Quilters Rest is a place to sit and rest for a few minutes or a few hours while waiting for your spouse or friends to finish looking at quilts and shopping. There will be tables and chairs available and you will be surrounded by beautiful quilts.
