The Chambersburg Quilt Guild is a non-profit organization that has been in existence for the past thirty years. From inception the membership has focused on a specific set of goals:
- Share ideas and knowledge
- Share quilts
- Learn and improve skills
- Learn to appreciate all facets of quilt making
- Enjoy the fellowship of anyone who loves the art of quilting
Members do not need to be quilters or quilt makers. We encourage anyone with an appreciation for this functional art form to come and join in the educational and creative environment created by this multifaceted and giving organization.
Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a Parent or Guardian. A waiver to be completed will be at the sign-in desk.
We meet on the second Saturday of the month from September to May

Chambersburg Quilt Guild Meeting
Saturday, April 13, 2019
Social Hour 12 pm till 1 pm.
Meeting and Lecture 1 pm till 3 pm
Our speaker this month is Karen Lee Carter. Inspired by a life-long love of fabric and sewing, Karen began to passionately pursue quilt-making in 1997. Karen designed and created custom, commemorative quilts on a commission basis for more than 10 years
Although she makes a wide variety of quilts, Karen’s true joy comes from creating original art quilts. Karen utilizes a vast array of construction and surface design techniques, often embellishing her quilts with beads, yarns, buttons, ribbons, trims and other small objects that add texture and visual interest.
