The Quilters of Alachua County Day Guild, Inc. (QACDG) serves the community through donations, education and extensive community outreach. We offer our members several quilt bees, programs, workshops, myriad activities and an annual three-day Quilters’ Day Camp.
As a member of QACDG, you’ll enjoy our monthly members’ program with stimulating speakeers and presentations, workshops taught by well-known quilters and talented members and a warm, friendly community of fabric artists.
Highly experienced quilters, newcomers to quilting, traditional needleworkers, machine- or hand-embroiders, quilting historians or those pushing the limits of fabric art — you’ll find a place here.
We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to preserving the heritage of quilting and related arts for individuals of North Central Florida through education, inspiration and information.

Quilters’ Day Camp (held each February)
Three days of workshops! Most Day Camp workshops are half-day (so you can take several) and taught by our members. Learn something new, get to know our guild members outside of the monthly meeting and have a LOT of fun!
Since our founding in 2003, our members have made and donated quilts, tote bags, stuffed animals, pillow cases, medical dolls, and doll quilts. The list grows every year, thanks to our generous members!
