Welcome to the League of Northern Colorado Quilters web site.
LNCQ was started by a group of enthusiastic quilters in 1996. After some tweaking, they put together a set of by-laws, selected an executive board, and created special interest committees. LNCQ filled a void in Northern Colorado. From that modest start, LNCQ has grown into a viable and appreciated quilt guild. We are a Not for Profit group devoted to providing education, information, and inspiration to those who wish to preserve the heritage of quilting.
LNCQ meetings are held six times a year on the first Monday of February, April, June, August, October and December. Social hour begins at 6:30 pm, and the general meetings at 7:00 pm. League of Northern Colorado Quilters’ Program at Harmony Presbyterian Church, 400 Boardwalk, Ft. Collins
