Hall County Guild History

The Hall County Guild was officially organized as a non-profit organization in 1978 by a group of
Gainesville, Hall County ladies who were declared Friends of the Needle.
The aim of the guild was to revive and restore skills of the waning and lost art of quilting.
Membership activities included monthly meetings, visits with other guilds in the area,
quilt shows and demonstrations, organized quilt classes, viewing channel 8’s quilt lessons,
viewing rented films and participation in the annual Chastatee Regional Library Show.
Monthly meetings were held at the College Branch of Home Federal Savings and Loan Association.
A “Share-Show and Tell” fest began at 10:00 AM and continued after a bag lunch
until everyone decided to go home.
