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!

UFOs and Community Service

For those who attended our community service sewing meeting, a big thank you! We had some very busy members stitching away and there are many quilts coming out of this. Some did small quilt tops, some did big quilt tops, and then there's the bunch of quilt tops in the middle size range.

You don't know what you're missing when you don't come. Some groups got more than one top done. The patterns and the colors were amazing!

For those participating in the UFO challenge, we had another good night of turned in quilts. We had 7 people who turned in 19 finished projects. This means they are getting their lists whittled down. Most completed for June 7 turn in was by Frances Perata who won a Fusion T Bar gift card. The drawing for the rest who finished at least one was a gift basket of notions from Cathy's Sew and Vac which was won by Cathryn Hepburn.

Members who joined in the UFO Challenge, we ARE taking finishes at our July 5 meeting. Remember they need to be totally finished and that includes a label. Our UFO Challenge leaders are anxious to see that huge listing we presented them with completed by year's end. Are you going to help us with that goal? How many of you will finish your list?

Our UFO Challenge leaders would like to hear from those who are consistently turning in quilts. They would love to hear how you stay inspired, hear encouragement given to others, and just some in general "how-to-get-'em-done". Talk with our leaders and see what you can do to encourage those who have not gotten quite as far.

See you in July!

Community Sew

Greetings to all! June 7th is our community sew night and all guild members, or those who might like to join in the fun, are invited to come. We have groups of people who come together and make up quilts tops for community service. Have you arranged your group? Do you have a pattern picked out? Will you be the first group to finish? Will you make more than one?

Come on and join the fun. We have a great time. Lots of laughter, sewing machines buzzing right along, and you could be a part of the fun. This is the night we've all been waiting for. Take a break from whatever you're doing and help us make our guild proud.
