Quilters' Connection is a dynamic group of quilters and quilt enthusiasts whose stated purpose is to encourage, preserve, and develop the art of quilting. It is made up of 400 quilters in the greater Boston area, and international members from as far away as Japan. Founded in 1977, QC is a nonprofit organization then based in Arlington and now in Watertown, Massachusetts. Meetings are held 8 times per year at the Arsenal Center for the Arts, 321 Arsenal Street, Watertown. In June of each year we hold our annual quilt show, also at the Arsenal Center for the Arts. We perform community service through the production of comfort quilts that are made by members and then donated to organizations assisting the homeless, the ill, the elderly, and children.
We invite you to visit the links at left to learn more about our organization, and to attend our Annual Quilt Show May 30 – June 1, 2014.
