Start a Local Chapter


In the U.S....or in Canada

 

We love receiving your quilts at QFK headquarters in Fairless Hills, PA, near Philadelphia, and we do our best to distribute them nationwide, but if you would like to specifically help your community, you might want to start your own chapter.

 

Until recently we had to limit chapters to the U.S. but now, thanks to Northcott and other Canadian textile manufacturers offering to donate supplies, we are able to extend the invitation to our northern neighbors.  Visit the Canadian Quilting Association blog to learn more.

 

Chapters do their own fund-raising, have workshops, distribute kits, and get the word out about QFK throughout the community.  But you're not entirely on your own!  The good news is that our own Sally Weber has put together a comprehensive packet describing each step that goes into forming a chapter, including fund-raising ideas that have worked well for others, workshop hints, ideas for obtaining fabric and forms to help you keep records of your distributions.  (Even though the quilts from the chapters stay in their local communities, they still count toward the annual QFK total.)
