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!

2012 UFO Challenge

Our 2012 UFO Challenge will come to an end on Dec. 6th at our guild meeting. So far, we have had a good number of quilts turned in. Will we make the goal of finishing 665 quilts? Probably not. Have we made a good attempt? DEFINITELY!!!!

As a guild, we encourage you to finish those quilts. Maybe you will finish your own personal list by Dec. 6th. If so, congratulations. If not, we will cheer you on as you continue to work. Maybe a goal can be set of finishing one quilt off this 2012 UFO Challenge list per quarter while working on new projects and that way they will get finished. Since we are coming in on a quilt show in less than a year, pick something from your list to finish for the show.

This is also a reminder to guild members that our December 6th meeting is our Christmas meeting. If you are planning on participating in the Christmas Block exchange, remember the block needs to be 12 1/2 inches square unfinished. Wrap it around a paper towel core and then put Christmas paper/cloth around it and tie with pretty bows. Remember, if you make one for the swap and one for yourself, you will have a Christmas quilt in no time.

See you all at the Guild meeting.
