Members and friends, welcome to our website! We are a vibrant, friendly and varied group of almost 200 quilters and quilt artists who have been sharing quilts, talent and camaraderie for quite awhile now. We are now entering our 31st year. There are monthly meetings, most of them with special speakers, quilt related activities, show and tell, etc. We have quilt shows every other year, and lots of quilt-ins, challenges, round robins, and community service projects, along with an impressive library for our members - something for everyone! As you navigate this website, you will see some of our work, see our schedule, and share our accomplishments. If you are interested in quilting, please join us the first Thursday of the month for our Guild Meeting. We love to meet visitors and will make you feel at home!

May 4-5 Workshop

It has been announced that our May 4-5 workshop with Barbara Shapel is now open to interested quilters who are not members of our guild. This promises to be a fantastic class. It's a thread painting class and the pattern chosen is of a Blue Heron. If you are interested in taking this class, please send an e-mail to our guild and you will be contacted on how to register for the class. For non-members the cost will be $105 for the two day class plus the cost of the pattern ($16).

The UFOs are becoming finished

Wow! What a night we had! We added more finished quilts from our UFO Challenge. We had a tie for most points, 6 each,  between Ginger Wenner and Judy Noble. Since there was only one "prize" for the most points, a drawing was held to see who would get the prize. Ginger won the drawing and received a box of See's Candy. Phoebe WInters won the drawing for those of the rest of us who finished quilts. She got a $10 gift card from T-Bar Tea and Fusion Cafe'.

While we are using a point system, 2 points for large quilts, 1 point for small projects, we still have a large number of quilts to make. We had only 11 of our 34 participants turn in completed quilt projects this time. We are showing them during show and tell each month and generating some gentle competition amongst ourselves. We are going to see if as a group, we can finish those 665 quilts! Can you imagine finishing that many in a year? 

Please visit these fine businesses as a thank you for allowing us to use their names when we award prizes. We all have to support each other and while we are making quilts, they are helping our economy by staying in business.
