2013 Raffle Quilt

About Us


The Newtown Quilters' Guild (NQG) began in June, 1989 when a group of ten friends gathered together for an evening of sewing and socializing. This was the beginning of a monthly "stitch 'n sew" that would be held in various homes in Bucks County. At first, there wasn't an organized activity and many crafts were shared. As word spread and more joined this group, quilting was the one craft that interested everyone. By November of that year, the group numbered 33 and quickly outgrew family rooms. Since then, the NQG devised its name, logo and weathered various moves as the membership grew to 100 with members coming from Bucks County, Montgomery County, Philadelphia and New Jersey.


Currently, the NQG meets the third Tuesday of every month at the Lutheran Church of God's Love (also know as God’s Love), 791 Newtown-Yardley Road, Newtown, PA 18940. In the summer months of June, July and August we usually meet at the Addisville Reformed Church in Richboro, PA where there is air conditioning. Please check the Program link to see where we are meeting for a specific month. Our meetings usually consist of a speaker or a demonstration. The June meeting is our birthday month and we have strawberry shortcake to celebrate. The October meeting is our annual dinner. There are usually no speakers at this meeting.

Guests are welcome to all meetings for a $5.00 guest fee. We welcome quilters of all experience levels to join us, even if you are not a quilter and would like to become one.
