"To promote the knowledge and interest of quiltmaking"
The Herring Run Quilters' Guild, Inc. held its first meeting in February 1989. The thirty members originally met at the Lydia Drake Library in Pembroke, MA and took their name from the nearby herring run on Route 14. We have now grown to over 100 members. Members of the Guild enjoy a rich and diverse selection of lectures and workshops, a quarterly newsletter, a membership directory, and attendance at our meetings. The Saturday meeting day enables working women the opportunity to become a viable member of an active guild. We meet thefirst Saturday of the month, September-June at 9:30 a.m. at the Church Hill United Methodist Church in Norwell, MA. Exceptions may occur on the Saturday date so make sure you check our Meeting Information link to confirm the dates.
Our goal is simple - to provide an atmosphere which nurtures us as quiltmakers. Our membership possesses all skill levels, from beginner to expert. Always keep in mind, however, that an expert quilter can be a beginning appliquer, and an expert at machine piecing can be lost at hand piecing. We all attend the meetings to learn and grow and to share our love of quilting.
Herring Run Quilters' Guild, Inc is a 501(c)7 organization.
Rose Perry designed the original name badge which depicts the letters "H R" on the top and two herring face each other on the bottom.
