CARNEGIE HALL GALLERIES
Alderson Quilt Guild
The Alderson Quilt Guild celebrated its 30th anniversary in March 2022. We currently have 32 members representing Greenbrier, Monroe and Summers Counties. The members routinely meet on the 4th Monday of each month with additional schedules for classes. Activities include: presenting veterans with quilts through the Quilts of Valor Foundation; providing baby quilts for the Marlinton Family Center; supplying local sheriff’s departments with Comfort Bags; sponsoring a quilt show and sale in March (National Quilt Month) and November at the Visitors Center; and creating an annual raffle quilt that helps fund special projects.
MISSSION STATEMENT: Pay homage and honor the WV mountain history and heritage through activities that promote the art of quilting for current and future generations.
The Alderson Quilt Guild endeavors to:
1. Develop education classes to enhance sewing/quilting skills,
2. Create items for community service programs,
3. Seek venues to display quilts for the public, and
4. Engage in outreach programs to help inspire the community to continue the quilting tradition.
Carnegie Hall exhibits are free and open to the public, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., and run through February 24. For more information, please visit carnegiehallwv.org, call (304) 645-7917, or stop by the Hall at 611 Church Street, Lewisburg, WV.
