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.

  • Program Changes for October & November
    Due to unforeseen circumstances, the programs for our next two guild meetings will be flip-flopping.  Our Quilts of Valor presentation will now be held in November and our schoolhouse program will be this week.
    Tables will be set up around the room and attendees will be able to rotate from demonstration to demonstration.  Schoolhouse has always been a highlight. Join us as we learn new techniques from our fellow members.
  • Opportunity Quilt Drawing – September 2022
