A quilt guild in Corning, New York

About Us

The Schoolhouse Quilters Guild of Corning was created fourteen years ago in September of 2002 as a way for us to gather to enjoy some time with friends and to share our love of quilting. Our group of 26 members meets twice monthly at the Riverside Village Center and has occasional full day workshops throughout the year.

The quilt guild works on a variety of projects including quilts of all shapes, colors, and patterns. We now meet at the Riverside Village Hall, Painted Post since we outgrew our space at the Kent Phillips Elementary School where we began our adventure in quilting.

Get-It-Done Challenge

Quilters tend to have many ongoing projects and we are actively chasing the finish of all those ufo's in the cabinet through our Get-It-Done Challenge. Each member submits a list of unfinished projects in September and we work on finishing them throughout the year. At each meeting, quilters share their completed projects and pay $1 to the lottery. When we reach $25 we draw a name and someone is the lucky winner. This is keeping us both busy sewing and emptying our cabinets!


Charity Projects

Each year we endeavor to contribute to the community in some way. Headstart needs blankets for their little ones, so we will be working on keeping the children warm at naptime this year. Members will donate fabric for 10" squares and the guild will purchase the fleece backing.
