About Our Guild

QACDG Summer Camp
Meet fellow quilters, learn and have fun at QACDG events.

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 a three-day Quilters’ Day Camp (held in February). 

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.

Guild members are invited to help, and new ideas for reaching into our community are always welcome.
