The Cornerstone Quilters Guild is located in Charlton, Massachusetts. Established in March 2000 by a group of active quilters looking for a place to get together and share knowledge, we are nearly 120 members strong and still growing!
Our goals are to further the awareness of quilting, to promote the sharing of ideas and talents with those interested in quilting, and to support community organizations through quilts.
Our monthly meetings are held on the third Sunday of each month from September through June – with the exception of December (no meeting) and June (held on the second Sunday) – at the Charlton Baptist Church, 50 Hammond Hill Road, Charlton, MA. See Directions below.
We meet from 1:30 pm until approximately 3:30 pm. Meetings usually begin with some guild business, followed by a speaker who shares a topic of interest with the membership. Various guild activities are discussed and/or presented and the afternoon concludes with a very popular member show and tell session.
Our dues are $24.00 annually, May through April. Our members receive a monthly newsletter full of news, activities, and upcoming events for our guild, local quilt shows, and opportunities to join in workshops, challenges and projects, and discounts are local quilt shops. Guests are always welcome; the first meeting is free, subsequent meetings are $5.00.
