A Brief History

The South Shore Stitchers was created in the fall of 1985 by Peggy Della Porta of Upper Township. She felt there were many people in the area interested in quilting to start a local guild.The club grew quickly and in 2004 reached over 100 members.The purpose of South Shore Stitchers is to preserve the heritage of quilting, be a source of information and inspiration, and be a gathering point for people with a common interest in quilt making.
Meetings are held at the Tuckahoe United Methodist Church, 112 State Highway 49 in Tuckahoe, on the second Monday of each month.
Visitors are welcome. Doors open at 6:00 pm and the meeting begins at 6:30 pmQuilt Shows
The South Shore Stitchers Quilt Show is held every two years during mid-October over three days at the Upper Twp. Community Building in Cape May County New Jersey. The next show is scheduled for Oct. 18th, 19th, and 20th, 2024.
