About Our Guild

The Abbeville Piecemakers Quilt Guild welcomes you to our site! Our guild meets at the Center Street Cafe, at 101 Center Road in Abbeville, South Carolina. Center Street Cafe is behind the Abbeville Nursing Home. From Thomson Circle, turn left on to Center Road, just prior to the Abbeville Area Medical Center. Visitors are always welcome!

We meet on the second Monday of each month at 10:00 am. Our guild meetings may include business sessions, demonstrations, guest speakers and Show & Tell. We offer optional classes from time to time for a nominal fee, depending on the difficulty and length of the class. On occasion, we meet at other locations in order to accommodate our activities. Also, we periodically go on Shop Hops and field trips, such as our recent tour of the Barksdale House in Abbeville.

New members and visitors are always welcome to our guild. Our dues are $20.00 per year and are due at our September meetings. After the September date, our membership dues are pro-rated each quarter. We choose new officers each year at our July meeting.

For questions or comments, please contact Jeanne Russell, Guild President; or Barbara Littell, our Secretary, at blittel@wctel.net. Thank you for visiting our site!
