Darting Needles Quilt Guild started as a group in 1982. An ad was placed in the Bargain Bulletin asking for people who wanted to get together to quilt and socialize. The group met at the Menasha Library until the group grew too large for that space. The Guild incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation 1988 as Darting Needles Quilt Guild, Inc. The Guild now meets at the First United Methodist Church in Appleton. Two of the original founders are still members of the Guild.
