Community Service

The Greenville Quilters Guild loves to give back!  Throughout the year, our members engage in Community Service through teaching and creating quilts for our neighbors in need.  We create, teach and craft our way into the lives of our neighbors in need.  Contact any member if you are interested in joining us for one of these events! 

Check out our photos below for our last few community service events.

Learn to Quilt Day

Annually, the Greenville Quilters Guild holds a day-long workshop to share the art of quilting with members of our community who wish to learn or even hone their quilting skills. Various aspects of quilting, such as fabric selection/matching, piecing, appliqueing, hand quilting, using rulers and quilting tools, along with finishing techniques are shared. Our guests are invited to make at least two different blocks over the course of the day. Members of the Greenville Quilters Guild are the instructors for this wonderful opportunity to learn the art of quilting. Please join us! If you’re interested or would like more details, please contact gqgpres@gmail.com to inquire. 

Pitt County Fair

Each year the Greenville Quilters Guild maintains a booth at the Pitt County Fair where samples of quilts and crafts are on display.  Our members enter exhibits in the competition with many ribbons being won for quilts and crafts.

Support for Local Charities

Part of the mission of the Greenville Quilters Guild is share items we create with various local charities.  Routinely, we donate items such as quilts for infants, toddlers, teenagers, adults, and veterans and, when a local group expresses a specific need, the guild works together to provide items that are needed.  Examples of specific needs might be pillowcases, chemo pillows, dolls for surgeons to use for children prior to surgery, etc. As a guild, we are all so fortunate to have the opportunity to provide items to our community and to help those who benefit from these gifts.
