NEW River Heritage Quilt Guild Website The address is or just click on the link

We ran out of space for our pictures, so we've moved. The new site doesn't have the pictures loaded yet, but all the other information is there such as the 2005 calendar and directions for things like the Snow White-Rose Red Challenge and the angel quilts. I hope the new one is a little better organized. Let me know what you think. This page will hang around for awhile till I move the pictures, and to give people a chance to bookmark the new one.

Where we meet (We love visitors!)

Cape Girardeau Senior Center, 921 North Clark, Cape Girardeau, MO

Exit 99 Off I-55, Go east (towards Cape) to third stoplight (Broadway), turn left on Broadway

At first light on Broadway, turn left onto Clark (If you pass McDonalds, you missed it)

The Senior Center is about two or three "blocks" away. It's on the left. If you get to a mandatory left turn, you've gone too far.

About Us
We have more than 100 members, whose talents vary from wonderfully gifted quilt artists to never-ever-quilted-but-I want-to-learn beginners. We have new members and guests at every meeting. Expert or neophyte, we just all love to quilt and to be with others like-minded.
We have a quilt show in even years. We have a home tour in odd years. We have a spring weekend retreat at Kentucky Lake, sponsor workshops, make quilts for local organizations such as the Safe House for Women, and have a Block of the Month. Every year we have a challenge quilt activity. One year it was The Box of Colors, and we had a Millenial signature challenge.
