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.

- March Guild Rummage Sale – Book Sale Table
Our next in person meeting is March 1st and will be our Annual Rummage Sale (see upcoming events for details). Along with the members’ sales tables, the guild will be having a book sale table.
How you can help:
- Clear out your craft books, (quilting, knitting, crocheting etc) and bring them to the March meeting to donate to the sale table.
- Invite your quilting friends to the meeting (no guest fee!) to enjoy shopping the book sale and members’ tables.
- Enjoy some new books for yourself (prices will be $3 for one, $5 for two, $10 for six) at bargain prices.
All proceeds from the book sale will go to the guild and any leftover books will be kept and brought to Rafflemania. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to reserve your table.
- Post Card Exchange
During our zoom meeting months of January and February, our guild will be sponsoring a quilted postcard exchange. It’s not complicated, sign up and you’ll receive an email at the end of December with your January partner. Send your partner a quilted postcard at any time during January and they’ll send you one in return! At the end of January, you’ll receive an email indicating your February partner and you’ll just repeat the process. Easy peasy!
Want to see the postcards exchanged by our guild members during 2020 and 2021? Click here: postcard photos
