Welcome to Fredricksburg Texas

Guild Show and Share
Home of the Vereins Quilt Guild of Fredericksburg. In 1996, the city of Fredericksburg, Texas held a week long 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. 

Fredericksburg was founded in 1846 and named after Prince Frederick of Prussia. The Fredericksburg Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in Texas.
