History of the Marquette County Quilters

In early 1978 a young Marquette boy was burned in a house fire. Silver Creek School Association parents decided to make a raffle quilt to help pay for the boy's expenses at the Ann Arbor Burn Center. They met in Mary Margaret Sloan's home. The workers enjoyed the time spent talking and sharing together about quilting and decided to organize a group to meet regularly. They arranged a meeting place and set a date for the first meeting of the Marquette County Quilters Association. Twenty enthusiastic quilters attended that very first meeting.

Members of MCQA have continued to meet and are
dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the art of quilting, patchwork, applique, and related fiber arts. Centered in Marquette, Michigan, our members hail from several counties in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. MCQA is a nonprofit organization whose members make and donate quilts to various charities, provide education on the art of quilting and host a bi-annual quilt show.
