Nitetime Needlers Quilt Guild in Transition

As for every other group, the pandemic has impacted the meetings and activities of the Nitetime Needlers Quilt Guild for a year. Currently we are gradually segueing back into regular in-person meetings, with Zoom participation available for those who prefer to join us from home or another location.

Our monthly meeting takes place the second Thursday of each month at 7:00pm at Hillside Christian Church at 900 NE Vivion Road in Kansas City. Guests are welcome!

As evidenced by the laptop, offsite members listen to the business meeting as the rest of us sit six feet apart at the church.

One guild activity helped by our extra time at home has been our ongoing service project known as Quilts in Force.  During the first three months of 2021, we donated 76 quilts to four Northland agencies: 15 quilts to Project Linus, 14 to Hillcrest Platte County, 22 to North Care Hospice, and 25 to Hillcrest Clay County.  We hope to soon return to our other regular activities like sewing days, workshops and weekend retreats.

In addition to supporting the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival in June, we are already working on having our annual Northland Needlers Quilt Show on September 17 and 18, 2021.

Plans are being made around anticipated COVID safety measures, with more distance between displays and no food service this year.  With the exception of 2020, this show is held annually by the Nitetime Needlers and Northland Quilters Guild at Hillside Christian Church.

May Program

Our May meeting featured a substitute speaker, but there was nothing substitute about Jackie Keirnan-Hale’s body of artwork. Our guild president artfully combines printed fabrics, colored pencil strokes, hand embroidery and embellishments into wonderful landscapes and nature themed art. There is a reason her beautifully colored and textured work is accepted at many shows. If you missed this, visit her website at
