About Us

Who We Are:

The Brazos Bluebonnet Quilt Guild is a tax exempt, non-profit, educational organization. It was first organized in late 1985 by a small group of women interested in quilts and quilting. The number of members has gradually increased to our current membership of over 100 active and honorary members.

The mission of the guild is to educate members and the public about quilts and quilting, and to support deserving charities.

Funds raised by the Guild are used to bring in nationally and locally recognized speakers to our monthly meetings and workshops. The programs are educational and interesting, providing quilting information on history, techniques, materials, and other aspects of this popular art form. Workshops are offered to further our knowledge.

The Guild also sponsors bus trips to the Dallas Quilt Show and the International Quilt Festival in Houston. The best education, however, often happens in small groups or “bees” where members meet for sewing and socializing.

We sponsor local high school seniors with college scholarships (three $1,000 scholarships presented in 2015) as well as supporting the "Go-Texas" scholarship program sponsored by the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.

The Guild stages a biennial quilt show in the fall of odd numbered years. A recent show displayed over 100 quilts, including judged entries and special exhibits. Attendees may shop at our Bluebonnet Store which offers goods made and donated by our members, as wells as supporting the numerous other vendors who participate in our show.

Quilt-Ed Project is directed toward educating our youth about the history of quilting as well as quilting as a learning tool and art form. Lectures by a guild member, along with hands-on activities are available to teachers as a fun resource activity. Demonstration booths are set up at Washington-on-the-Brazos and
Booneville Days. We strive to educate the community and help where we are needed. Quilts are a wonderful part of our heritage and bring comfort to our lives.

Each year the Care Quilt Committee coordinates the donation of time & resources to provide care quilts, which comfort to both children and adults in our community during difficult times. Organizations we assist include but are not limited to: Phoebe's Home, The Prenatal Clinic, St. Joseph's Cancer Center, Hospice Brazos Valle, Child Protective Service &, American Red Cross local disaster relief. In 2015, 239 Care Quilts were distributed!

We provide a quilt to KAMU for their fundraising auction and a "Welcome" banner to every new Habitat for Humanity homeowner in our area.
