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.
