Executive Board & Committees

Our History

Big Red Quilter’s Guild began in May 2014 with a small but dedicated group of quilters. Through our shared interests our mission is to ensure textile and needle arts continue for future generations through education and promotion of all quilting styles, including traditional, modern and art quilting.  We hope you spend some time browsing our web site to learn more about our group and how you can become involved!
