Quilters of all ability levels are encouraged to improve their craft by taking advantage of workshops and lectures held throughout the year.

Members learn modern quilting methods from nationally recognized quilt experts as well as skilled local quilters. The workshops give members the opportunity to meet and learn from distinguished quilters. NWQ annually invites a nationally known quilter and author to lecture and conduct workshops.
