WELCOME TO THE 27th Annual A Quilters’ Gathering™!

It gives us great pleasure to invite you to A Quilters’ Gathering.  All workshops, lectures, and special events have been planned just for you.  We have gathered together a wonderful group of nationally known quilt makers to teach both the basics and the latest in quilting methods and techniques.  Our Special Events are a terrific mixture of pleasure and purpose.  A Quilters’ Gathering was founded in 1989 by Jeanne Glenfield & Marie Geary to provide you the opportunity of learning in an atmosphere of warmth and friendship with all the comforts of a warm quilt.
