Members must stay outside the gym to allow for ‘take-down’ volunteers to work uninterrupted in securing all quilts; please do not come earlier than 5:15. Volunteers will deliver the quilts to the member at the door. This process will go smoothly with members’ cooperation.

Preserving the Art of Quilt Making
The Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Guild, Inc. is a non-profit organization governed by Guild Officers and operates under set bylaws. Committee Chair members help to promote quilting within the Guild and the community through local and regional projects and educational programs. The Guild preserves traditional methodologies and adds to its history by developing and encouraging new fiber art concepts.
We meet each second Monday of the month at Parkway Presbyterian Church on the corner of Silas Creek Parkway, between Yorkshire and Kirklees Rd, Winston-Salem, NC. The church entrance is off of Kirklees Rd (Click here to see a map). Fellowship begins at 6:30 P.M., business meeting at 7:00 P.M. and then the program at 7:30 P.M. Come join us. All are invited to attend.
Welcome to the website for the Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Guild. We are thrilled that you are interested in our site and hope that you will want to join us at one of our meetings. Our meetings are held monthly on the second Monday night of each month at Parkway Presbyterian Church. The meetings informally begin at 6:30 with a time to socialize and have a snack. At seven the formal meeting begins with a short business meeting, then a wonderful time of show and tell, followed by a speaker or maybe a hands on event. Our speakers cover many topics of interest to quilters – art quilting, paper piecing, applique, specialty products and on and on. Often the speaker will also conduct a workshop related to their talk on the Tuesday following the meeting. This gives our members an opportunity to learn new skills and laugh with friends. Several times a year we have a potluck and social which gives us yet another opportunity to strengthen our friendships. We would love to have you join us. Visitors are welcome to come to any of our meetings. Most of the meetings are at no cost. Only a few, which might have a nationally known speaker, have a fee and that is only $5. (you can check our calendar to see if the night you want to attend has a fee). So please come and join us. And when you do, look for me and introduce yourself. I’m “AIKEN” to meet you!
