One of the goals of a quilt guild is to provide its members with learning experiences that they may use to develop quilting skills. These experiences are often best provided by lectures or workshops given by both national and local teachers. MTQG provides programs like these each month at general meetings.

Occasionally our meetings may be more social in nature, such as the spring luncheon or ice cream social, and our annual Christmas luncheon.

Quilts and quilting are always part of the day no matter what the occasion.

Scheduled programs and workshops will be presented here, but please see the easelprogram chairperson at general meetings for more information and to sign up for workshops you may be interested in taking.

Maxine Everhaert Trunk Show - March 20, 2017

Following are some things Maxine shared with us about her quilting story:  "I began sewing when I was 4 years old with my nanny, Ellen.  We did doll clothes.  During my life there was always a lot of sewing going on including my being a 4-H leader and being named 4-H leader of the year for Montana in 1955.  I did not sew quilts until much later.

My first quilt was made in 1983 for my daughter Renee's bridal shower.  It was supposed to be a simple quilt...log cabin.  I self taught myself to hand quilt and to this day still hand quilt the quilts that I hope my family will pass down in their families.  Because I was teaching I did not make another quilt until my youngest daughter, Teri,was married in 1989. It was a fun project done entirely by hand..crazy quilt.

Then my daughter, Shanna was married in 1991 and again for her shower I made a quilt.  At that time I was getting ready to retire and did so in 1993.  My wish for retirement was that I have time to quilt...It is my life now."
