Guests are welcome to attend any meeting. There is a guest fee of $5.00 for each meeting with the exception of special national speakers when the fee is $10.00. If a guest decides to join our guild during the same meeting that the guest fee was paid, the guest fee is applied toward the membership fee.

There are many benefits to membership in the Ankeny Area Quilters’ Guild. They include:

  • An opportunity to hear local and nationally known speakers.
  • An opportunity to become involved in the many quilting activities our guild sponsors like quilt challenges, mystery quilts, fabric and block exchanges and our annual quilt retreat.
  • To be involved in our annual quilt show.
  • The opportunity to learn new skills and techniques in workshops, classes and from other members.
  • The opportunity to participate in a small group.
  • To participate in meaningful donation projects. Some of our recent projects include making holiday pillowcases for children in local hospitals, cancer patient hats, winter attire for local youth, diapers for Africa and donating quilts to women & children through Children and Family Services of Iowa.
  • Show and Tell at our monthly meetings.
  • Refreshments at the meeting
  • Friends, fabric and fun!

Members are encouraged to design and/or quilt a nametag for themselves shortly after joining the Guild. There is no specific pattern and members are encouraged to be creative. Only members wearing a nametag are eligible to win door prizes. Here’s an idea for an easy nametag to make.
