Guild Programs

Our meetings begin at 6:30 with a social time to chat and catch up with our guild friends. The business portion of the meeting begins at 7:00. Included in the business portion of the meeting are brief reports from the board and community service project chairs. We present a new donation basket loaded with quilting supplies each month. The proceeds from the basket are donated to a different charity after each meeting. 

 

Each meeting features an interesting and informative program. Nationally recognized quilt teachers and artists offer lectures and trunk shows highlighting the many and diverse styles of quilting. Workshops are offered several times a year. We also showcase the talents of our many gifted members with demo nights. Following our speaker is the ever popular Show & Tell to end the evening on a remarkably high note. All guest program speakers are free to members; guests are charged a $5.00 fee which can then be applied to membership if you choose to join the guild that evening. 

 

The guild also holds an annual auction as the primary fund raiser for the guild programs, a picnic, and an end of the year winter festival

Program: "A Love of Quilting, A Love of Teaching" with Andrea Hoke

Andrea has been sewing ever since she was a little girl. Fortunate to have a mother who was a Home Economics teacher, she learned to sew and do needlework at a very young age. She grew up sewing her own clothes, participating in 4-H club, and entering her creations in the local county fair. Andrea enjoys sharing her knowledge and experience and delights in introducrting sewing and quilting to others.
