Welcome to Great Lakes Heritage Quilters!

We are an evening quilt guild that meets in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.

GLHQ was organized in 1992 and is currently 130+ members strong, with members across the U.S. and Canada.

Our purpose is to promote cooperation and the interchange of ideas, to stimulate an interest in quilting, to present quilt related educational programs, and to engage in charitable projects.

We'd Love to Meet You!

We meet on the 2nd Thursday evening of each month, September - June. Meetings start at 7 pm, with the exception of our December and June Potluck meetings which begin at 6:30 and last roughly 2 hours.

At each of our meetings, we have a program, a business meeting, and everyone's favorite - show & tell.

Quilters of all ages and experience levels are welcomed!                      

Our guild invites locally, nationally, and internationally known speakers for workshops and lectures!  We feature Hybrid meetings during the months of September, October, November, April, May, and June.  During these months we meet in-person at the Birmingham Unitarian Church.  Sometimes our instructor will be live on stage or we may stream them via Zoom into the room! 

During the months of January, February, and March, we meet and have our workshops via Zoom, only.  Living in Michigan, you just never know if the weather will cooperate, plus we have many members who spend the winter in warmer climes or prefer to stay indoors when it's dark and cold - no problem!  Having Zoom available at every meeting expands our membership outside of the Metro Detroit area, too!  We have members in California, Wisconsin, South Carolina, Florida, Arizona, Canada, and western Michigan!  The only time we don't Zoom is for our December Potluck... technology just hasn't caught up to Zooming food yet!!  Check out the Programs tab to see all the exciting instructors, workshops, and events we're hosting!

Non-members are welcome to attend our Zoom-only and Hybrid meetings for a fee of $10. If you are joining us in-person when we are hosting a Hybrid meeting, you are welcome to pay at the door.  If you'd like to join via Zoom, please register and pay online as a Guest.
