Education is the primary purpose of the Quilters Guild of Plano. This includes inspiring and exposing the next generations to the art of quilting. Quilt Plano 2017 provides several opportunities for this education:
A special category in the show for Youth Quilts, made entirely by a quilter 17 years old or younger. Entry fees for the category are waived.
A Kids' Activity Room which is open throughout Quilt Plano 2017, where children and their families can make a colored quilt block. The block will be included in a future quilt finished by the Guild for a local hospital, or may be taken home and finished with their parent. Instructions in red-work are also given in this area.
