We are a group of individuals who already like to quilt, or would like to start, who want to grow and learn more about quilting, and who want to enjoy the fellowship and friendship of other quilters.
This group is not exclusive to the makers of quilts, but includes all who find interest and worth in the collection and preservation of our fiber arts and heritage.
In 1987, Diane Hienton and Barb Lister were new to Denver. They missed the large active guilds they had known in other locations. With the encouragement of their small neighborhood quilting group, The Piece Corps, they started planning how to organize a quilt group.
As former teachers, they knew how to plan! Hours were spent developing goals and a direction for this new guild. They advertised an organizational meeting to be held in May 1987 at the Castlewood Library.
On May 21, 1987 the first meeting of Arapahoe County Quilters was held. At the June meeting, 35 members paid dues of $10 and the guild was off and running.
