Welcome to Quilters By the Sea (QBS) – Rhode Island

Thank you for visiting our webpage! Quilters by the Sea quilt guild is a diverse group of quilters based in the Portsmouth, RI area. Our members are dedicated to sharing our love of our craft and broadening our quilting horizons. We hold monthly meetings which frequently feature presentations by renowned quilting teachers and artists. Many of our members belong to smaller, guild-sponsored sewing circles and block exchanges where we hone our skills and participate in charity work. Although the current pandemic has necessitated a move to remote meetings, we continue to meet monthly and support the work of the guild. We look forward to the day, hopefully in the not-too-distant future, when we can meet in person again and organize our next quilt show. Although we are physically separated, we are still united in our love of quilting and our fondness for each other. We hope you will consider joining us!
