Welcome

Whether you are new to the art of quilting or an experienced quilter, we invite you to join us at the Minot Prairie Quilt Guild. We cover a wide range of quilting: tradition, modern, piecing, applique, mid and long arms, plus many, many more. Please join us in discovering and sharing your favorite or not-so-favorite niche.

The Minot Prairie Quilt Guild meets the first Thursday of each month at Vincent United Methodist Church, 1024 – 2nd St. SE, in Minot. We begin with refreshments at 6:45 p.m., and the meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. The education program and Show and Tell are highlights of each meeting. Please join us for food, fun, and quilting!


 
2019 was not your typical year for Community Service for the Minot Prairie Quilt Guild. Due to the specifications of a grant we received, the efforts of the Guild were focused on weighted and fidget blankets. We were able to make and donate 55 weighted blankets and 68 weighted lap pads that totaled more than 780 pounds. We were also able to construct and donate 100 fidget blanks for patients with Alzheimer’s and Dementia in the Minot Community. Our Guild members donated over 712 hours of their time to make this possible. In December, we donated the last of the finished quilts for the year with 9 going to the YWCA and 1 going to the Men’s Winter Refuge. Although our effort’s focused elsewhere, we were still have to donate 63 quilts worth $27,682.68. the donation of materials, time and talents by our members, was able to donate 209 quilts worth over $58,000 to those in need in the Minot area and throughout ND. We also use the scraps left from making quilts to fill pet beds and donated 158 beds to the local animal shelter and animal rescue groups.
 
Thank you to all members who donated their times and talents to making our community a better place.
