Welcome to the Eastern Long Island Quilters Guild, started in 1981. We strive every year to meet our mission: To preserve and promote the tradition, culture and history of quilting; and to promote the knowledge and understanding of all aspects of quilting among our members and the general public.
Friendship as a Common Thread
ELIQG challenges members yearly to “think outside the box” and create a themed challenge quilt.
Stop by Riverhead Library to see past years’ member challenge award winning quilts (which best depicted the theme for that year). The challenge helps to foster fun and friendship within the guild.
To view the 2015 member challenge: “The Joy of Best Friends” visit our Annual quilt show at Suffolk Community College in Riverhead, June 6 & 7, 2015.
Sharing, Caring, Support, Community, Commitment, One-On-One, Fellowship, Guiding, are a few of the adjectives that describe the guild and it’s members. A place to learn and grow in the genre of quilting. The personal contact you cannot find at home in front of your computer. Please join us! Everyone is welcome.
