Each monthly meeting includes a program designed to inform and inspire. Speakers are often nationally or regionally known quilt artists, designers and teachers.  Other months the program might focus on community service, challenge quilts, or programs presented by members of the Guild. 

Workshops by presenters 

are offered several times throughout the year.


The Old Capitol Quilters Guild organizes two retreats each year, usually in February and September. 


OCQG has a long history of community service. Members give freely of their time, talents, and resources to create wonderful quilts and other items for donation to area charities. The Service Commitee coordinates these service projects for our guild. 

Each February  the OCQG holds its  annual Service Day, where members volunteer their time and talents to sew for charity. 


Each year the Program Committee comes up with a challenge for members to enter and devotes the July meeting to viewing member's entries.
