David Taylor was born in Peterborough, New Hampshire, and currently resides in Fort Collins. His obsession with fabric began at an early age when he salvaged scraps from his mother’s sewing area trash bin. By the time he was 12, he was creating costumes, clothes and crafty things. When he semi-retired as computer graphic artist, he began teaching applique and quilting techniques throughout the world.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Longmont Quilt Guild is:

  • To preserve and continue the traditions and history of the art of quilting, quilt making, and related hand arts.
  • To develop and contribute to new approaches to quilting.
  • To expand the knowledge of quilting and educate those interested in the background and skills of quilting.
  • To contribute to community education and appreciation of the art of quilting.
  • To provide community outreach projects available for member participation.

We value all quilt makers and enthusiasts, regardless of skill level, enjoyment level, or style type. Quilting is an artform that thrives on ideas, and we strive to share those ideas and learn from each other to further each individual's journey in the craft.
