In 1996, the city of Fredericksburg held a weeklong celebration commemorating its 150th birthday. As a part of that celebration, a quilt show was held. The show was put together by volunteers who had a love for quilts and quilting. During the course of planning and executing that show, it was evident that a number of women in Fredericksburg were interested in having a guild where quilters could meet on a regular basis. In September 1997, a group of volunteers from the 150th show helped to organize a guild with the first guild meeting being held in November 1997. At that meeting there were 42 women who signed up as charter members. The Guild was named in January 1998 and at the end of its first full year, the Vereins Quilt Guild of Fredericksburg had grown to 162 members who actively participate in all phases of guild activities.
