Ogallala Quilter's Society
Ogallala Quilter's Society is a nonprofit educational, non-discriminatory organization founded in 1997 to foster high standards of design, color and workmanship in quilting; teach the art of quilting; and preserve our quilting heritage.
Have you renewed your membership for 2019? Memberships run from January to December. Renew now!
Featured Teacher: Laura Wasilowski
Laura Wasilowski is a textile artist and creator of hand-dyed fabrics and threads. Her pictorial art quilts (created from fused fabrics and hand-embroidered or machine quilted) are collected and exhibited internationally.
Wasilowski's free-form embroideries share a similar style with her narrative quilts. Whimsical in nature, both textile art forms express her joy and love of creating art.
Volunteers are always important at any event as large as the Festival. From ticket takers to quilt watchers, we have a job for YOU! If you volunteer for 2 hours, you will receive one of the 2019 Limited Edition OQS Volunteer Pins.
Our Ogallala Quilt Festival 2019 is quickly approaching! Check back often as we will post updates and information as it is available!

The city of Dimmitt has started a 3 year project that will
rehab US 385 & State Highway 86 from end of Dimmitt
to the other. This is a major project involving moving
sewer and water lines! Traffic barriers are set up, along
with signs pointing to alternative routes around construction
Workers and heavy equipment will be only a few feet from passing vehicles. Drivers are being asked to please pay attention! The project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2021!
During Ogallala Quilt Festival, allow extra travel time to arrive at your class locations due to this construction! Dimmitt Chamber of Commerce told us that travel has been reduced to two lanes with signs pointing out lane closures that are in effect. Be careful out there!
