Darting Needles Quilt Guild

Welcome to the Darting Needles Quilt Guild website. 

We are celebrating our 37th anniversary this year and our bi-annual quilt show that will take place this August. We hope you can join us at our show to see all the beautiful Joy of Quilting entries.

We are proud of the charity work we are involved with in our communities as well as our veteran’s quilts that are presented to those who have served in the armed forces. 

Our members range in experience from beginning to master quilters as well as ranging from traditional, modern, and art type quilting. We all begin somewhere and grow by being exposed to inspiration around us as well as being encouraged to spread our wings. No matter what skill level you are at we hope you will join us at one of our meetings and get to know our guild and the amazing women who make up our membership.

If you have any questions, please contact us at dartingneedles@gmail.com

We look forward to meeting you.

Guild President 2020


Dear Darting Needles Guild Members,

Our guild member’s health is at the top of our priority list at the moment as decisions are made with regard to guild meetings. After much thought, keeping up-to-date on the recommendations from the CDC, Wisconsin Health Department, and with the guidance of our board, I have reached a decision to cancel our April 9, 2020 guild meeting.

As we continue on this new journey and receive updated information from the CDC, Wisconsin Department of Health as well as medical professionals, we will make decisisons on a month to month basis on guild meetings.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Debra McIntire at debra.mcintire@gmail.com.

Hoping that all of you and your loved ones stay well.
