Benefits of membership:

First Coast Quilters Guild (FCQG) was formed in November 1984 by Fay Heyn, former owner of Calico Station Quilt Shop.  The purpose of our Guild is to preserve the heritage of quilting, to be a source of information and inspiration, to perpetuate a high quality of excellence in quilting and related arts, and to be a gathering of people with a common interest.

FCQG is a non-profit organization.  Over the past 33 years, we have provided Love quilts and/or monetary donations to:  the Ronald McDonald House, Clay County Children's Haven, Orange Park Library, Hubbard House, American Diabetes Association, Quigley House, Hospice Northeast, Orange Park Kidney Center, Clay County Habitat for Humanities, Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranch, Wolfs Children's Hospital, Arthritis Foundation, and Sea Mark Ranch to name a few.  This year (2017) we donated quilts to Judy's Place (Council on Aging) and the Orange Park Police Department.  In 2018 we will be making donations to the Green Cove Springs Police Department.
