Classes and Workshops

The Guild’s mission statement includes quilting education,

and to that end the Guild sponsors national and local teachers throughout the year.

Links to future classes, workshops and lectures are listed here. 



Basic quilting classes

Would you like to learn to quilt? The Decatur Quilters Guild (DQG) offers a basic quilting class to DQG members and non-members.  The class is a series of 8 to 10 lessons on pattern and fabric selection, accurate cutting techniques, basic sewing machine maintenance, sewing accuracy, hand and machine piecing and quilting, and much, much more. Each lesson is 1 ½ to 2 hours. Anyone from 8-80 years old is welcome to join us.  The class is free to Decatur Quilt Guild members in good standing. The non-member fee for the 10 lessons is $25, which means the quilter can automatically become a member and enjoy the many other benefits of DQG membership.
