The Quilters Guild of East Texas is proud to be able to provide Tyler quilters with programs and workshops taught by many nationally renowned quilters.  Our speakers are authors, quilt pattern designers, fabric dyers and nationally recognized instructors. Many have produced award winning quilts at some of the most prestigious quilt shows in the United States.  

Programs are offered the second Thursday of each month following the QGET business meeting at First Christian Church, Tyler.  There is no charge to attend a program.   

Workshops vary in length from 1/2 day to a full day.  They are held on the second Friday of the month.  Full day workshops are generally $45 for members and $55 for non-members.  Cost may vary with the length of the workshop. Workshops begin at 9am.  Participants are encouraged to arrive by 8:30 to set up machines and supplies if necessary.  The classes meet in the Christian Life Center (CLC) building which is behind the church building where we have our Guild meetings. We use Room 5. You may bring your lunch or get take-out locally during our lunch break.
