Garden State Quilters (GSQ) is a nonprofit volunteer organization for people who enjoy the art and craft of quilting.
We meet at the Chatham United Methodist Church, 460 Main Street, Chatham, NJ., on the second Monday of each month, with the exception of October when we meet on the third Monday of the month. Our meetings begin at 6:45 p.m. For more information, please check us out on Facebook and perhaps join us at a meeting at the church.
The 2015 quilt show kick-off meeting will be held on Wednesday March 12, at 6:45pm in the quiet study room of the Chatham library.
Please join us for an informal gathering to get to know the committee chair ladies, how this whole show works, and perhaps to see where you can help out. All comments, concerns and suggestions are welcome. Hope to see you there.

At a past meeting, Mary Browning extended an invitation to the guild to participate in the second annual sew'in day for making dresses for girls in Malawi.
