There is lots to know about the Birmingham Quilters Guild. If you don't find what you are looking for below, fill out the form on our Contact Us page and we will try to answer your question.
BQG's year runs from September through July. Guild membership is $35 per guild year before March and then it is only $22.50. You may join at any time during the year. Most members like to renew their membership in July so they don't miss anything in the fall.
To join, fill out this form and bring it with your dues (check or money order made payable to Birmingham Quilters Guild) to one of our meetings. Or you can mail it to BQG, Box 59106, Homewood, AL 35259.
Membership has its privileges. Members have access to a full year of guild programs, the guild library, mini-workshops, retreats, and much more.
Meetings are currently being held via Zoom on the second Monday of each month (except August.) Only paid members have access to these meetings. The business meeting begins at 9:30 by the business meeting followed by the program or workshop. It concludes with a slide show of the latest show and tell from the membership. We try to last no more than 1.5 hours per meeting.
The Guild offers different types of workshops to its members throughout the year. We try to schedule at least one national teacher a year for a program and classes. Mini-workshops are taught via Zoom this year by our members. National teacher workshops, also via Zoom, are open to members at the teacher's going rate.
