The Martha Washington Quilters Guild:
The United States Bicentennial Celebration in 1976 generated increased interest in quilting. In 1980, Margaretta Rogers and Yvonne Clouser created the Martha Washington Quilter’s Guild, named for the location of the guild and in honor of the needlework skills of our country’s very first “First Lady”.
The Martha Washington Quilter’s Guild embraces working together to promote quilting in all forms, enhancing individual strengths, as well as supporting and encouraging the present day art of quilt making. Joining together to share ideas, skills, and knowledge are integral parts of the Guild’s activities.
The primary charity of MWQG is Children and Youth Services. All children taken into CYS are given an opportunity to choose a comfort quilt for themselves. The Martha Washington Quilters Guild supports many chairites and causes. Read more about MWQG and our charitable outreach. In addition to charitable contributions, MWQG holds biennial quilt shows the first weekend in November, on odd numbered year to encourage the sharing of our art and raise funds for our guild's outreach.
