Foothills Quilters is a small group of enthusiastic, creative quilters who gather to share ideas, share our work, and learn new skills.


October MeetingS ! !

  • Get together to "sit-n-sew" on Wednesday, October 14, starting at 10:00.  We will be meeting at Christ Lutheran Church (remember that masks and social distancing are required in the church buildings).

  • The next regular meeting is Tuesday, October  20, at 1:00 PM at the new Foothills Arts Center (the old YMCA), 321 East Main Street, Elkin.

    • Please come prepared with masks and we will practice social distancing.  If you’re familiar with the old Y then you’ll know where the basketball court was and that’s where we plan to meet. Look for the Foothills Quilters banner outside the entrance to know which door to enter. You will drive up by the guard house on the right side of the building.  There is parking available along the driveway and a parking lot across the driveway for those who are able to walk easily.  There are a few parking spaces available next to the building for our members who are mobility challenged.

    • Also, that day in the morning at 10:00 am and again after the meeting folks can come “shop” the fabrics and things from LeAnne Mantero.  We have approximately 1500 yards of fabric of various sizes, some books, and some magazines. All fabric will be $4/yard and all money will go to the guild. We have set aside all large pieces of fabric (4 yards or more) as backing for future charity quilts but there are plenty of larger pieces available still. 

  • Anyone bringing a quilt top to be passed to our long-arm quilters  please call Carol (336-526-5159) to make sure backing is ready. 


We want everyone to feel safe and cared for. If anyone needs any help just let one of the officers know and we’ll do our best. 


ATTENTION!!!  If you are among the folks who do not feel comfortable meeting in groups, BUT you would like the chance to show off & share your accomplishments, PLEASE email photos of your work to the guild address:
