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

Upcoming Programs:

February 28, 2024 Zoom Meeting

Program: "Everything But the Cotton" with Julia McLeod

"Let’s explore the world of quilts that were made with what I call ‘Not Cottons’. 

When quilters don’t have access to a stash of quilter’s cotton, what do they turn to? This one hour lecture, trunk show and Q & A session shows quilts – antique and modern – made of wool, silk, polyester and more. The trunk show of my own work shows what you can create with neckties, saris, kimonos and other unusual, ‘not cotton’ textiles."
