ABOUT MEMBERSHIP

GQCCC currently has over 200 active members who gather to share and learn in a variety of activities: general meetings, workshops, classes, and sewing groups.  These activities are held both in-person or virtually using Zoom.

The membership year is from July through June.  Membership is not prorated if you join mid-year.  However, new members who join during or after the annual quilt show receive access to member benefits from the date of registration to the end of the next membership year.

We would love to have you as part of our guild!  To join, please complete the online membership application and payment form at the top of this page.
