Monthly Meetings

Join or renew your membership online now

In 2022 we will have a mix of in person and zoom meetings.  Please keep an eye on the website meeting page and our monthly newsletter for information and updates regarding this.  If you’re a member of FRCQ you will receive the zoom link by email in the week prior to the meeting in person.

FRCQ meetings have an inspiring member “show and tell” followed by a program, usually an international, national, or local speaker. Our speakers generously share their inspiration, knowledge, insights and personal artistic journeys.

The “show and tell” has become our Member Showcase and is posted on the Member Galleries page of our website. We would appreciate for everyone who  would like to share their work to please send photos (they don’t have to be professional!) to president@artquilters.org. They will then be pulled into the Member Showcase file for that month and posted on the website within a week or two of the meeting. We still strongly encourage you to bring your work to show at our in-person meetings – just would also like a photo!

Dates: Every third Monday, January through November.

Zoom Meetings:

The meeting is from 7-9 pm

In-person Location: 

Westminster Recreation Center, 

10455 Sheridan Blvd, Westminster, CO

Time: Social time starts at 6:30. The meeting is from 7-9.
