Guild trips to shows: Paducah and IQF: Chicago  see events page


The Guild is hosting a bookfair on Saturday, February 28th, from 10 AM to 9 PM, at the Rivers Crossing Barnes & Noble (near Keystone at the Crossing). Your purchases that day will help support the Guild and one of our favorite charities (to be determined). The bookfair will feature the following:

  • A quilt exhibition throughout the store, featuring the Guild’s 2015 Quilt Show Opportunity Quilt
  • Quilting demos and workshops for children and adults alike
  • A quilter’s storytime for children
  • A charity quilt-in where you can help finish quilts for charity
  • A book signing by Jennifer Fulton and the Guild members that helped with her book, Idiot’s Guides: Quilting

The bookfair will help promote membership in our Guild, our upcoming Quilt Show, our charitable activities, and quilting in general. Simply come to the River Crossing B&N and then prior to your purchase, either show the coupon, mention the code, or tell the cashier you want to participate in the bookfair to have your purchases count.

Although we hope you will all come out to support the bookfair, there are many ways in which you can participate. For example, you can make purchases at any Barnes & Noble in the country from February 28th to March 3rd and as long as you show the coupon or mention our bookfair code 1154892 prior to the actual transaction, those purchases will count towards this fundraiser.  So spread the word to everyone you know—they can help us out even if they don’t live here in Indy.

You can also purchase items online at www.bn.com/bookfair from February 28th to March 5th, and use the code in the Bookfair Event ID Box at checkout to help the fundraiser. So again, spread the word about our fundraiser and share the code number at the bottom of the coupon to help increase our sales.

By the way, if you are a Barnes & Noble member, you can apply your member discount and still help the fundraiser. Gift card purchases, video games, software, and digital content (such as downloadable books, digital magazines, or music files) will not count, however Nook ereaders, accessories, and purchases at the in-store Starbucks do!

So plan ahead and hold your purchases until our special day, and then go crazy and help your guild and its charity.

Note: In the case of bad weather, the events scheduled at the River Crossing Barnes and Noble will be moved to Sunday, March 1st, from 10 AM to 9 PM. The bookfair fundraiser however, will run from February 28th to March 5th regardless.

The Quilters Guild of Indianapolis, Inc. is a non-profit organization open to anyone interested in quilts or quilting. We offer a wide variety of guild activities throughout the year, including workshops with nationally recognized speakers, charity projects, smaller “quilting bee” groups, a retreat, and our bi-annual quilt show.

Meetings are held monthly in three different locations and at three different times, giving members and guests an opportunity to attend any one, or all three.  Our yearly dues are only $25.

The evening meeting is our General Meeting and large group gathering, where we feature programs by nationally known quilters. Two daytime meetings are held for smaller groups, one on the north side of Indianapolis (QGI North), and one on the south side (Out to Lunch Bunch). Each has its own speakers and programs.  Look under the Groups tab for more details.

President’s Greeting

President’s Greeting from Julie Grausam

Hello and Welcome to the QGI Website,
     We are going to have a full and busy year at QGI and LOTS OF FUN!!  There has already been a very successful workshop with Daren Redman, dying fabric.  Members can check out our Facebook page for member’s postings of their dyed pieces – just look for COLOR!  So many great workshops coming up – check them out under Events – Workshops.  Our speakers at the General QGI meeting are also listed under Events – Programs.
     There are so many opportunities for members to become involved with QGI.  Our Charity group that meets monthly is a lovely group that completes hundreds of quilts during a year that are donated to local organizations.
     Bees are also popular and you can find out the latest open Bees by checking out Bees under Groups above.
     Our three monthly QGI meetings can all be attended by members and guests.  Each one offers some different activities and speakers.  Our monthly QGI Newsletter gives updated information on each  meeting.
     If you would like to join QGI please use the Membership Form found under Membership above. 
     Glad you stopped by!
Julie Grausam, 2014 QGI President
