History and Mission

 Brownstone Quilters Guild was founded in 1983 by Marianne Loughlin, then a resident of Waldwick, NJ. She posted fliers in a nearby fabric store inviting other quilter to attend an initial meeting. Our name was chosen to honor the typical Dutch brownstone homes of the Hudson Valley. 

 The object of this Guild shall be to enable the sharing of information and expertise about quilting amongst its members and community; to educate its members and the community through workshops, lectures, discussions and shows; to further interest in quilting in the quilting community; to exhibit to the community quilting's place in and contribution to the culture and history of New Jersey.
