Meetings are held at Grace Lutheran Church, located at the corner of Hwy. 64 and Blythe Street, Hendersonville, NC. Half day workshops are held at Grace Lutheran Church following the Guild meeting and will begin as soon as the guild meeting closes and sack lunch concluded. (Bring your own lunch!) All full-day workshops will be held on the Friday after the general Guild meeting and will be 6 hours in length, beginning promptly at 9:00 am and ending at ~3:30 pm, with a half hour lunch break.

All meetings for Western North Carolina Quilters Guild will be CANCELLED if the Henderson County Public School System dismisses early or cancels classes for that same day. In the event that Henderson County delays opening, the guild WILL meet at the regular time. Please be safe and do not drive if unsafe conditions exist in your area.
