Welcome Quilters

The Northern Lake County Quilters Guild (NLCQG) is an organization of enthusiastic quilters from northeast Illinois and southeast Wisconsin. We meet monthly in the Antioch, Illinois Township Center.  In addition, we have workshops presented by nationally known teachers, special events such as local shop hops and UFO days where we gather to work on our unfinished or charity projects.  If you enjoy quilting, we hope you will consider joining our guild! Learn more about our upcoming events by reading our blog.

  • 2018 Quilt Show – Save the Date!


    DATE: September 29th and 30th

    It’s been two years since our last show and it’s time again to share our quilting talents. The quilt show is the BIGGEST fund raiser that our guild conducts. Not only do we make money to support our guild activities, we share our love of quilting with others. We have many guests who are fans of our guild quilt show.

    See our Members Quilt Show page to see how you can help make the show a success.
