Guild Meetings

Our monthly meetings are held on the Second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm September through May.

Our monthly meetings keep us all connected and "in the know". We typically have an informational/educational program; a program might even be a "PIG" auction, rummage sale or demo night. We also have announcements, refreshment break to visit with the members and best of all Show & Tell.

 

We try our best to keep the meetings fun and exciting. Feel free to stop by as a guest for any meeting.

Lending Library

The Guild has a lending library of over 300 books, rulers and DVDs that can be checked out on a monthly basis. The library is open at the meetings.

Quilt (safety) Pins

you’ll notice people walking around with safety pins attached to their name tags. Each pin represents a finished project that was shown during the Show & Tell portion of the Guild meeting.

Block of the Month

Beginning September 2019 Toddy Gladwin (toddylou@gmail.com) will present a new Block of the Month for those interested in participating. You will make one or more blocks and bring them to the next month’s meeting. For each block you enter you will receive a lottery ticket. One ticket will be drawn and the winner will take home all the blocks for that month!

PIGS (Projects in Grocery Sacks)-

An opportunity to find a home for some of your unfinished projects that you are no longer loving! This is a fundraising activity to support our community outreach programs. Those who wish to participate are asked to bring in an unfinished project in a brown grocery sack (your PIG). Include a one sentence “teaser” description of the project to describe the contents and entice bidders. At our February 2020 meeting we will auction the PIGS to new owners.

UFO Challenge

As quilters we all have many incomplete projects in our sewing rooms. This activity is motivation for us to get them finished.

If you have projects that you are having a problem getting back to, we are sure the Quilts 4 Kids and comfort quilts will be happy to accept your finished projects.

Rules are located on our RESOURCE page.

Name Tags

Please make a name tag so we can all learn each others names. Feel free to use any technique you desire. Pin on your quilt pins for completed projects and quilt show entries. Wear it to meetings, classes and quilt shows. The pattern can be downloaded on our RESOURCE page.

Show & Tell

At each meeting members bring their completed projects and place them on the Show & Tell table. Show & Tell begins with a group showing of all the Community Outreach Projects quilts & pillows. Then we have individual showing of the members items. When your item is shown, go to the front of the room, identify yourself and tell a little bit about the item….. inspiration, pattern, who quilted it, who will receive the beautiful gift…….. you get the idea.

Quarterly Mini Challenge

A theme will be announced in September, December and March for the following quarter. For those interested in the challenge they will make a 20” x 20” quilt depicting the theme. In January, April and June (or September if there is no June meeting) the entries will be voted on by the guild members and the winner will receive a gift certificate to a local quilt shop.

Semi Rummage Sale

The sale is generally in February every other year at our regular meeting. Start sorting out those gently used treasures that you are ready to pass on to a new owner. Items can include fabrics, sewing notions, small appliances, quilt magazines or books, quilt patterns and more!

Guest Speaker/Presenter

Each month at our meeting we have a guest speaker or presenter that will educate us on quilting techniques, fabric choices, medium options, color fundamentals, and more!

ETC - Education, Teachers and Classes

This committee works to bring us teachers and classes. They also keep us informed on commercial classes and shows. You can find a list of the local shops and links to their websites on our Quilt Businesses page.

Yearly Challenge

A theme will be announced in September and each participant will present their completed theme quilt (any size) at the May guild meeting. Entries will be voted on by guild members and the winner will receive a gift certificate.
