Our Story

The Foothills Quilters Guild was chartered in 1986 by a group of approximately 20 women who wanted to gather together to share their love of quilting.

The guild has grown over the years and today there are approximately 40 members who live in nearby counties in both North Carolina and South Carolina.

Quilters Guild Meetings

In general, the guild meets at 7:00 P.M. on the third Thursday of each month at:

Ascension Lutheran Church
300 North Lafayette Street
Shelby, NC 28150

The exact day may change due to holidays and the scheduling of guest speakers. The dues are currently $20 per year.

Visitors are always welcome and the guild loves to have new members join.


What We Do

Members participate in a variety of activities including workshops, splinter groups, fat quarter swaps, demonstrations and trips to quilt shows both local and regional like Paducah.

We have a number of community service projects going on at all times. We maintain an extensive library with a large selection of quilting-related material, both printed and video that can be checked out by members.
