The Traditional Arts Expo returns in 2022.

 

The Fair invites guests to explore the talents of today's guilds and artisans.

The Evening Star Quilter’s Guild

Founded in September of 1987. The original group of 12 quilters from Warren County who quilted in their homes has grown to a vibrant guild averaging 103 members.

If you have a love for quilting you are welcome to join the group, where you'll learn and share the art and skills of quilting. A main focus of the Evening Star Quilter’s Guild is to provide continuing education and support to all members from beginners to experts. The Guild meets at 7:00 pm at the Belvidere High School on the second Tuesday of each month from September to June every year. Dues amount is $20.00 per year.

Creativity is inspired through the many optional programs, some of which include: show and tell, challenges, block of the month, row quilts and mystery quilts. Workshops on specific designs or techniques are offered throughout the year where one can learn “hands-on” and possibly go home with a finished quilt. A new member liaison assures no one will ever feel uncomfortable attending their first meeting.

Throughout the 24 years the Evening Star Quilter’s Guild has been together, the members have reached out to the community by donating hundreds of quilts in support of local charities and organizations. Each year the Charity Quilt Committee identifies a charity or organization to receive the quilts made by the members. In the past quilts have been provided to “Wrap a Smile”, an organization which helps children with cleft lip or palate repair. Quilts have also been given to the many brave wounded soldiers in hospitals here and abroad though Quilts of Valor. For the past several years, the Evening Star Quilters have created and donated holiday place mats to Meals-on-Wheels for distribution to local shut-ins in hopes of making their holidays brighter. And there are other organizations to which the group has donated many quilts.
