If you consider yourself a new member--whether you joined last month or three years ago, whether you are a beginner quilter or an experienced one--we invite you attend our newly established "Newcomers Group." 


We will meet monthly, the third Wednesday of each month. Our next meeting will be Wednesday, November 20th, from 7-9 PM at Pam Ehrhardt's home, located at 1014 Marcy St Iowa City. Please RSVP to Pam at 319-351-6531 or Bring your own project to work on plus any show and tell you would like to share. There will be a demo of all the ways to make HST plus a small take home project. There will be light refreshments. Since we are calling this "Quilt & Wine" we have wine as well. 


Directions to 1014 Marcy St: We live in a condo near the southeast corner of Kirkwood and Marcy- behind the brick wall. On the far right end of the block of condos, is a private lane to three additional condos. Take this lane to our address. Call me if you have problems finding it. There is very little parking down this lane, so please park on Marcy St.

Please contact to be added to the Newcomers Email list or with any questions.

Calling all New OCQG Members


If you are a new member or consider yourself to be one, we hope you’ll participate in the special Newcomers Show & Tell/Trunk Show at the Dec. 9 OCQG evening meeting specially designed to showcase your creations.


We hope this will allow everyone to get to know you better and learn from your experiences as a quilter.
