Welcome to Quilters Connection!

Quilters Connection (QC) is a non-profit organization and is comprised of a diverse membership, primarily based in Massachusetts and surrounding New England towns. We have members from as far away as California and Japan. Our art is continually evolving. Work ranges from intricate traditional piecing and lovely applique methods to colorful quilts with a modern and artistic twist. The 2015-2016 season commemorates our 39th year as an organization. Annually, we have eight membership meetings and bring in a variety of well-known speakers to present to our members and guests. Guests may attend our meetings for a nominal $10 fee.

This dynamic group of quilters and quilt enthusiasts has a stated purpose to encourage, to preserve, and to develop the art of quilting. We perform community service by making and donating comfort quilts to those in need. Originally we were based in Arlington, MA followed by a residency in Watertown, MA. In September 2015, we will be relocating to a new venue, “The Conference Center at Bentley” at 175 Forest Street, Waltham, MA The conference center is centrally located and easily accessible from major highways.

If you’re looking for a place to socialize and meet fellow quilters, we invite you to become a member and get involved. Our guild has a diverse range of quilting interests and we believe there is something for everyone. We are not a judged or juried group and welcome quilters; young and old, experienced or novices. Quilters Connection has a variety of sub groups; Neighborhood Bees, Comfort Quilt Bee, Journal Quilt Group, Adopt a Fabric, Winter Free Workshop, Get-Away Weekends and Fund Raising opportunities. There are always ways to volunteer and get involved at QC! As a result of moving to Bentley we have increased capacity and are currently accepting new members with no wait list.
