The Dakota Prairie Quilters Guild was established in 1982 and is a non-profit organization formed for social, educational, and recreational objectives; to sponsor and cultivate interest in the appreciation and preservation of patchwork, applique, quilted art, and related needlework, and to promote fellowship and exchange of ideas.
The guild has more than 50 members representing all ages and quilting abilities. The projects and activities are varied and each year the guild undertakes a service project or sponsors a raffle event from which a portion of the proceeds go to a local charity. The Guild also participates in local art festivals and members have demonstrated quilting for many local schools and clubs.
Within the guild, many individual members have received awards in local, state, and national quilt competitions.
The Guild also participates in a book club and is currently reading Order of Elm Creek Quilts Books. They have also been creating the blocks that go along with the book series.
