Kenan Quilters' Guild
The goal of the Kenan Quilters' Guild is to preserve and promote the art of quilting. The group aims to enhance the art of quilting by sharing ideas, expertise, and fellowship among members.
The Quilters' Guild supports the Kenan Center by making an Opportunity Quilt each year, presenting a biennial Quilt Show in the Kenan Arena, and presenting other quilt-related programs and events throughout the community.
Meetings are open to all and are held the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the Taylor Theater Meeting Room on the Kenan campus. Membership is $15 per year which includes a Guild newsletter.

2021 Opportunity Quilt
This bright, colorful quilt is "Brighten Our World", our 2021 opportunity quilt. Our guild produces a quilt each year as a fundraiser with the express purpose of donating the proceeds to the Kenan Center of Lockport, a cultural, educational, and recreational gem in our community. Debbie Colaizzi created the quilt from the pattern "Indian Summer" by Judy Niemeyer and it was long arm quilted by Tara Thom of Town and Country Quilt Shop in Albion. It is 80" wide and 100" long. Tickets will be sold by all members of our guild and at any of the Kenan Center events. They are $1 each or 6 for $5.
The Kenan Quilters' Guild is a proud affiliate of the Kenan Center in Lockport, NY.
