Contented Heart Quilt Guild

About Our Guild

 

The Contented Heart Quilt Guild was organized in 1989 by a small group of people who shared a love of quilting. The guild has grown to more than 40 members. The mission of the guild is to teach and promote the art of quilting and to help others through participation in community and charity events.

 

The guild operates the Quilt Shoppe, located in downtown Monticello, Kentucky. The shop serves as a gathering place for quilters to learn from each other. Quilting classes are offered for children and adults throughout the year. The shop also serves as a place for local artisans to sell their handmade arts and crafts, such as quilts, baskets, woodcarvings, dolls, bears, bonnets, purses, ceramics, prints, jewelry, quilting notions, and other items.

 

The guild sponsors The Quilt Show of the Little Mountains annually on Friday and Saturday of Labor Day weekend. The show typically includes an exhibit of more than 100 quilts, a block contest, quilt give-away, vendorís mall, and hand-quilting demonstrations.The quilts are juried and judged with cash prizes awarded in various categories.
