The Baltimore Heritage Quilters’ Guild (BHQG) was founded in 1984 by three women who met through the owner of a local quilt shop. They decided to meet in October, and presented “Baltimore’s History in Quiltmaking” to interested Baltimoreans. Needless to say, they were pleasantly surprised when sixty people attended! The BHQG was born!
Today, the guild is thriving with approximately 150 members. A diverse range of programs and specialty classes are offered to meet the varying skill levels and interests of the members. Monthly meetings are held from September to June, where a variety of quilt related topics are discussed. From “quilting expert” speakers to show-and-tell, to quilting classes, a biennial Quilt Show, quilting demonstrations for the public, and making quilts for charities, the Baltimore Heritage Quilt Guild is alive and well in Baltimore, today. We strive to preserve and promote knowledge of the art and craft of quilts and quilt making to any and all interested persons in the Greater Baltimore Area.
If the BHQG sounds like something you’d be interested in, feel free to drop by one of our meetings. They are held at 7.00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month at the Woodbrook Baptist Church. Hope to see you (and your quilts) there!
