Illinois Quilters, Inc. was founded in 1980 for people interested in quilts and quiltmaking. Our guild promotes an appreciation of the fine design and workmanship of quilting through fun, educational events. We honor and preserve our quilting heritage and encourage quilt-based community service.

IQI meetings are at 7:00pm on the first Thursday evening of most months and feature presentations on a wide variety of quilt topics. Doors open at 6:30pm for library book checkout and return, workshop registration, fabric exchanges and more. 

We meet ten months each year on the first Thursday of the month from 6:30-9:15 pm. Guests are welcome for a fee of $10.00 a meeting, with a limit of two meetings per year.

Workshops may follow presentations the next couple of days after. Click here for more information about workshops.

Meetings are held at Beth Hillel Congregation Bnai Emunah, Wilmette, at 3220 Big Tree Lane, Wilmette. Workshops are at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church at 1133 Pfingston Road, Northbrook.
