PTQG Chapters

Pine Tree Quilters Guild, Inc. (PTQG) is Maine’s statewide quilting guild with over 2,000 members, including 67 chapters divided into 7 geographic areas. Chapter activities are one of the best ways you can enjoy quilting, share and expand your quilting skills, and make some great new friends. If you are interested in joining a chapter that doesn’t have contact information listed, please contact us for their information at our address above or e-mail Ann Hussey.

Have you wondered about joining a chapter? One group describes their meetings, “…as we sit around our meeting room and work on our projects, we love to have good conversation…we laugh, cry, and talk about anything and everything…come visit – you’ll be surprised where some of our conversations lead…”

Join today! You can belong as a Chapter member, as an Affiliate member (belonging to one or more chapters in addition to a “home” chapter) or as a Floater member (an individual membership). For more information, please contact Membership Registrar, Ann Hussey.

If you plan to visit a chapter, please confirm the meeting date and time.
