Greetings from Gail, our President
Welcome to Las Colcheras Quilt Guild’s website. We are a group of about 170 members located in Las Cruces, New Mexico who share a love of quilts and quilting. It is our goal to promote and preserve the art of quilt making through education, activities and friendship. We offer lectures and classes with National Speakers, local artists and small group activities to enhance our skills, learn new techniques and challenge each other to grow in our craft.
Las Colcheras Quilt Guild, which became official in 1988, is a non-profit organization with a Community Outreach Program in area schools, a committed Community Service Group which meets weekly and frequently holds Sew-Ins for specific projects based on a community need. We meet monthly and have a biennial judged quilt show. Stay and look around our site and please, join us or come visit us sometime.
Look who’s coming in November!
Norah Madigan McMeeking worked as a graphic designer for book and magazine publishers before moving to Santa Barbara, California, where she now teaches adult education classes in quiltmaking. As the granddaughter of two seamstresses, a sign painter, and a printer, she believes her interest in patchwork is genetic, combining sewing and graphics. Her pictorial quilts have been exhibited at AQS, The Road to California, Quilt U.K., The National Patchwork Championships, and Pacific International Quilt Festival.
