About Gems of the Prairie Quilters
Gems of the Prairie Quilters is for quilters of all skill levels from Peoria and the surrounding area. The monthly meetings consist of a program, which can be a lecture or demonstration, committee reports of upcoming events, optional block exchanges, other guild activities and show and tell.
Throughout the year, work is done on service projects and annual raffle quilt. Monthly workshops and quilt challenges are offered to members as a means of developing and improving quilting skills. Some of the workshops are devoted to service projects while others are given by members or by well-known teachers. Gems puts on an annual quilt show that showcases 300-400 quilts. Please refer to the Quilt Show Tab for the date of the Gems of the Prairie Quilt Show.
