"The Heartland Quilt Network is an organization of quilting guilds, professional quilt teachers and quilt shops. The purpose of HQN is to share information with members about programs, workshops, teachers, quilt shows and quilting events in the 4 state area (and possible surrounding areas as well) of Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa. Guilds have found this to be especially helpful in sharing teachers with other guilds and shops to help programs be very cost effective for everyone. Yearly membership is $15.00 per guild, shop or teacher. The membership fiscal year runs from July 1 - June 30.Yearly membership includes a full directory of all members, quarterly newsletter and biannual meetings usually held in October and April. At the meetings members can share information in person. Members have the opportunity to promote: Guilds - meetings, workshops, local teachers, speakers, and quilt shows. Shops - classes and teachers Teachers - lectures and workshops andshow samples of their work if they desire."
