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 since 1981. There are monthly meetings, most of them with special speakers, quilt related activities, and show and tell. 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, check out 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!

ASQG Birthday Night

For those of you who missed it - we had a very nice birthday night! Our tables were decorated with a fabric flag under a vase of fresh garden flowers. A big thank you to Missy Carpenter for getting the "birthday" cake donated! It was a marvelously flavored cake and very moist. It was a Neapolitan cake which means we had our choice of chocolate, vanilla or strawberry. And yes, there were bits of strawberry in that section.

We had 5, yes I said 5, members of the UFO Challenge turn in a total of 22 quilts finished. The drawing winners for the evening were Cindy Green who got a dinner at Hula's and Frances Perata who got needles, thread & fabric from Rabbit Hole Quilt Shop. How are your UFOs coming? We are slowly getting that number of over 600 quilts turned in whittled down. Cathryn Hepburn & Frances Perata each gave a brief encouraging talk explaining how they are getting theirs done. Cathryn said she set a goal of getting them done and keeps that in mind. Frances said she's retired and has nothing else to do - this got a big laugh from the members present.

We learned that the two classes that will be taught by Thom Atkins are both full with waiting lists. This is a very good sign for our quilt guild. Congratulations to the members who signed up making this happen!

Our next meeting in August will be a regular meeting. Hope to see you there!
