The Village Quilters, located in Loudon, Tennessee, was established in the fall of 1996 by Carole Spahn with a charter membership of approximately 20 members. In 2011, the guild was incorporated as The Village Quilters, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
We've grown tremendously from those early days, in numbers as well as skills. At present, our membership of over 300 hail from many nearby communities and we have a wealth of knowledge to share.
The purpose of the guild is to provide quilters of all skill levels, from beginner to professional, the opportunity to meet, share ideas, and learn new techniques.
The Village Quilters Inc., is a community service-oriented group, that provides fellowship and learning opportunities for our members. The Guild has been the proud recipient of the Tellico Village Property Owners Association Community Service Award for several years.
Our quilts are donated to many local charities and facilities including Tennessee Children’s Services, At Risk Babies, Loudon County Domestic Violence Center, local nursing homes and other area charities. We also donate completed quilts to local service groups for fund raising purposes.
Check out all of our programs, classes, and workshops. Workshops are taught by our talented Guild members and additional classes are taught by our professional speakers or members. Our workshops and classes are for Guild members only, so if you're not a member yet, we hope you'll join us!
In addition to all of our learning opportunities, we hold a Quilt Show every two years in even numbered years and a Quilt Challenge in the odd numbered years.
