The North American Quilling Guild Conference NAQGCON
formerly known as the Annual Guild Meeting (AGM)

The NAQG Conference is always a very special event. In addition to getting an opportunity to meet other quillers from all over the world, you will able to see their work and learn and try new techniques. At this time we do not have a class schedule to post here. If you think you might be interested in giving a class/workshop please contact the hostess for this years NAQGCON as soon as possible.

Before the North American Quilling Guild (NAQG) was a formal organization, a number of American quillers were members of the English Quilling Guild. Membership in the English Quilling Guild sparked an interconnectedness between quillers and quilling groups in the United States.

In 1990, Pat Caputo of Connecticut became the regional representative to the English Quilling Guild for American Quillers. There were 16 Guild members spread over 12 states. The purpose of the NAQG, then and now, was to promote quilling. Pat started an informational newsletter in July of 1990 for American quillers. The newsletter had no name at that time; members exchanged pictures of their work and lots of ideas about techniques and supplies... In 1992, the newsletter was officially named Quill America, a name that is in use even today.

In 1992, a group of American quillers attended the 10th Anniversary and First International Festival of Quilling held by the English Quilling Guild in the United Kingdom (UK). The common interest in quilling generated new friendships on both sides of the ocean.

On June 10-12, 1994, Mary-Alice Kattwinkle coordinated what was supposed to be a reunion meeting of those quillers who had gone to the UK. This was the first time an attempt was made to get a group of quillers together from different parts of the USA. The meeting was called the AGM, since that is what our English friends called their annual meeting. Each attendee brought samples of their work which was set up as a small display in the meeting room. The variety of different styles and techniques within that small group was overwhelming. That is when it was decided to try and make this an annual event.

Continuing the tradition, we have held an Annual General Meeting (AGM) each year since. In 2008 it was decided that the name should change to North American Quilling Guild Conference (NAQGCON) to let everyone know that this event is for quilling; sharing, teaching, learning, enjoying.

Please check out the AGM/NAQGCONs shown below to see what fun we have had at these events over the years.
