Meet the guild
The Olathe Quilter’s Guild was established in 1980 and currently has approximately 75 members.

The Olathe Quilter’s Guild is an evening guild and meets the second Tuesday of the month at Olathe Christian Church located at 1115 Ridgeview Rd. in Olathe, Kansas.

The guild meetings are focused on sharing the appreciation of the art of quilting, building friendships and exposure to leading quilt artists. They strive to balance their meetings with speakers addressing various topics of interest to quilters and social or educational events such as potlucks, swaps, retreats and sew-ins. A techniques demonstration meeting is featured annually and there is a stitch group to teach and encourage hand quilting.

The guild provides lots of activities in which to participate such as blocks-of-the-month, opportunity quilts, an annual challenge and drawings for baskets filled with quilting fabric, patterns & notions. The guild supports the community with charitable projects each year. In 2015, fourteen Quilts of Valor were presented to local veterans and active duty military personnel. In addition quilts were made for Safehome residents as well as craft and gift items for Safehome’s annual holiday store. Safehome will be the primary charitable focus again in 2016.

Over the years, the Olathe Quilter’s Guild has made original design quilts for Mahaffie House Stagecoach Stop, Johnson County History Museum and the Olathe Public Library’s Indian Creek branch.

The Olathe Quilter’s Guild is proud to be a founding guild of the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival.
