The purpose of the Evening Star Quilt Guild is to promote the love of quilts, to encourage and preserve the art of quilts and quilting and to contribute friendship, knowledge, and encouragement to others.
The guild is based out of Birmingham, Alabama and was founded in 1998. Our Guild meeting is the first Thursday of every month at the North Shelby Library; additionally, we have Sit 'n Sew the second Saturday of the month at the First Baptist Church of Helena.
