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!

It's our Birthday!

July is our Birthday! We are going to celebrate July 3rd, with good food, potluck, and great fellowship. We are hoping to have a program on the history of the guild - so if you know where it's kept, let our program VP's know. Last I heard, they had not located it.

Sometimes we play crazy games, sometimes we just enjoy the evening. It will be a chance to start off your July 4th weekend with friends and laughter. Come see what we're all about and see if you would like to sign up for the next guild year that starts in September. We'd love to have you!.

We will have a short meeting as there is always some business to attend to. Our board is working on getting a new slate of officers to be elected and take over come September. If you are looking to get involved, please say so. We can't possibly know if you want to be president if you don't tell us. We have lots of members and someone must be interested in taking on an office. I've held several and this year due to other commitments, I'm only doing this web page. Step up and help our guild.

We have a fantastic lineup coming this fall and we hope you will be there to enjoy. August brings Peggy Gelbrich who will present "Life Through Quilts" and a workshop with a paper pieced pattern. September is June Jaeger who is a well known quilter from Oregon who frequently works with appliqued animals. If you've never seen her work, it's a must see. October brings Gee's Bend quilters from Alabama. This will be a ticketed meeting - you must have a ticket to attend! We are looking forward to a full house for the guild meeting and the workshops. November Sandy Klop, American Jane designer, will thrill us with her quilts and a workshop with 3 different patterns. December will be our Christmas meeting with all kinds of sugary treats for dessert. We have a block exchange and a short meeting. Some show and tell of Christmas quilts and a good time.

Our quilt show folks are gearing up for our November 2015 show. Hopefully our members are also gearing up and getting some fantastic quilts ready to show off at the quilt show. Stay tuned and see what marvelous things will be coming our way in 2015!
