Mission Statement

Our purpose is to promote and preserve the art of quilting, patchwork, applique and related fiber arts; to sponsor workshops, lectures and displays; to stimulate an interest in quilting and occasions for friends to meet for fellowship; and to engage in charitable efforts deemed advisable by the membership.

History of the Guild

  • CAMEO Quilters Guild was established in the summer of 1994. Janet Johnson was approached by quilters wanting to form a guild. Janet had formed two quilt guilds in the area: Oakland County Quilt Guild and Great Lakes Heritage Quilt Guild. Under her guidance on structure and procedures, the first meeting of CAMEO Quilters Guild was held in September 1994.

  • The guild was named by Jenny Dukes, who suggested CAMEO, or Come And Meet Each Other.
  • Our newsletter was named ‘The Silhouette’ by Amy Lobsinger. 
  • Our logo, the 'Cameo' was designed by Johnnene Maddison.

CAMEO Quilters Guild is a nonprofit organization.
