Events

Special events bring sparkle to our lives and allow IQI members and friends to explore quilt-related opportunities. And part of IQI’s mission is to share expertise and the love of quilting with the public. These events bring IQI members into the public space to share the love of quilting, support the craft and engage non-members with tips, tools and techniques of this art form. Everyone is welcome and we hope you’ll attend these events!

2022 Raffle Quilt: “A New Leaf for Retired Ties”
The 2022 Raffle Quilt
Raffle Tickets for the 2022 Raffle Quilt “A New Leaf for Retired Ties” will be on sale through IQI Quilt Show at the Fine Art of Fiber event held at the Chicago Botanic Garden. The winning ticket will be pulled by the Raffle Committee on Thursday November 10, 2022.
The 2022 IQI Raffle quilt celebrates the 42 years of Illinois Quilters Inc.  The quilt is based on The Third Week In October pattern by Ruth Powers.  All the leaves are made of donated silk ties and was quilted by Sue DiVarco. Eight guild members helped to piece and bind this stunning quilt.
Tickets are $1.00 per ticket or six tickets for $5.00, and cash or checks are accepted. Members are asked to buy or sell $25.00 worth of (30) tickets yearly. You can purchase your tickets on our Shop page, or send a check to our mailing address: Illinois Quilters, Inc., P.O. Box 39, Wilmette, IL 60091.
The Raffle Ticket Chairperson will write your name and phone on all on-line purchased tickets. Each ticket needs a phone number on each stub to go into the drawing. The winner need not be present, and the winner will be called, and arrangements made to deliver the quilt.
