Piecemakers Guild

About Concord Piecemakers Guild


The Concord Piecemakers Guild was founded in 1980 by 17 women with the intent of sponsoring an exhibit of quilted items which would encourage interest in quilting and provide quilters with an opportunity to display their art. It has expanded both in size and intent to include yard sales, presentations by well-known quilters, and community service work.


We meet monthly from September through June, usually on the third Wednesday of the month. Occasionally, the meeting date is changed from the third Wednesday to another Wednesday due to holidays.

At most of the meetings, there is a speaker who is a well-known quilter presenting either a trunk show or a slide show. Also at most meetings, there is a vendor offering fabrics, tools, books, etc.

A member show-and-tell session wraps up each meeting. At this time, we get to see what our friends have been working on.

Get Away Weekend

Once a year, usually in late January, there is a Get Away Weekend for those who wish to participate. We rent rooms and the ballroom at a hotel near-by. We stay over-night for Saturday (and optionally also Friday and Sunday) nights. From early morning until midnight we gather in the ballroom to sew and share ideas. The meals are included in the package fee, and they are delicious. It is a great time for all who attend.

Quilt Challenge

Each year, at the beginning of the fiscal year, a Quilt Challenge is announced. Participation is voluntary. All members who wish to take up the challenge make a quilt that fulfills the challenge requirements.

These quilts are then shown at the May meeting. One year the challenge was a mystery quilt. Another year it was to make a quilt whose perimeter is 50 inches or less.

Special Interest Groups

The Concord Piecemakers Guild encourages members who have specific areas of interest to form groups with other members to further share and explore those interests.


We have a special interest group called "wearables." These members explore various fiber techniques that can be translated into wearable art. They also do challenges and road trips. The "wearables" group meets once a month. Several members have won regional and national prizes for their work.
