On March 25, 1981, Kay Hofacker started the guild with eleven quilting enthusiasts. Kay Hofacker, June Belnap, Vanetta Brough, Linda Carsten, Debbie Horvath, Connie Bahs, Carol Hofacker, Glendora Sorg, Thelma Mackey, and Barb Husky were Charter Members of this new group.
As the membership grew, the group sponsored its first quilt show at the American Legion Hall in Port Clinton in 1982. Another show followed in 1984.
The Guild has supported many worthy causes in the area over its history and will continue to do so in the future. Some of the recipients of the Guild’s generosity include, The Ida Rupp Library, The Riverview School in Oak Harbor, The Oak Harbor Library, The Ottawa County Fair, the Port Clinton Police Department, Heartbeat of Ottawa County, The Ottawa County Courthouse, American Red Cross, The Ruth Ann House, and the Ronald McDonald House in Toledo.
In 2010, the Guild once again sponsored a Quilt Show to help promote quilting in the area as well as increase the number of contributions to the community. This continues to be a bi-annual event with the next show scheduled for July 2020.

     The Guild also provides quilt classes to its membership as well as the public. From time to time, the Guild will bring in well known quilters from around the country to give presentations and classes to its membership and the public.

Guild membership is open to anyone with an interest in quilting; whether a beginner or advanced quilter, all are welcome! Just complete a short membership form and turn in to a member or at the next guild meeting.
