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!

Part lecture and part trunk show, this fun talk tells her journey from Canada to Korea and back again.  While in Korea, she studied the ancient art of Pojagi, Korean patchwork.  Back in Canada, however, the Korean materials were more difficult to find, so she adapted Pojagi techniques to readily-available western materials with some great results.
