The Rutherford Quilt Guild, formed in 2009 with about 25 members, has more than 50 members. The Guild meets on the second Monday of each month from 7pm to 9pm at First Baptist Church of Rutherfordton, and gladly accepts new members. Guests are welcome too.
The Rutherford Quilt Guild Inc. held its first quilt show the at Isothermal Community College in April of 2011 . The culmination of nine months of work resulted in 168 quilts made exclusively by the members of the Guild.
