We currently have approximately 39 members.Lil Rev performing at December 2009 meeting

The Oconomowoc Quilters Guild was created in September 2006.  There were 25 members at the first meeting, and 40 members by the end of the first year. At the end of 2009 there were 78 members. We had 71 members at the end of 2011.

Several of the founding members were also active in Patch Lives Quilt Guild from Wales, WI.  Their assistance and experience has been invaluable in directing and establishing our guild.

Below is a sampling of the  programs, projects, activities that the guild members have enjoyed.
