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!

Upcoming guild meetings and workshops

You've joined the guild - now become a part of the fun. There are things for everyone to join in on. We have our newsletter block - everyone could do this and then we'd have several winners. Then there's the $2 block where the last couple of months, they've sold out - you have to be quick on this one. There's the fat quarters table where you pay for a chance to win 5 lovely fat quarters. Last month there were 4 winners! If you didn't enter, shame on you. If you did and won, we expect to see what you made with them in Show & Tell.

We're jazzed each month by our speakers who have plenty of knowledge and talent to share. Guild nights we get a lecture and then on Friday following we have a workshop. Most of our workshops are full. Our workshop chair has been busy cheering us on and getting us to take part. We are enjoying the Show And Tell from our guild members who have finished quilts. Sometime we even see the ones done in workshops one month at the next meeting. AND we hear about what a great time was had by all.

We have a fantastic lineup coming. March we have Sandra Bruce who will be doing a lecture on Material Matrix, where she explains how she got started on this type of quilt. Her workshop, Wake Up Cup, is full with a waiting list. April sees Anelie Belden coming to lecture on Dresden Dance, with a workshop on Split-Blade Dresden. The sample quilt is gorgeous! May will have us hosting Lura S-Smith for a lecture with a 2 day workshop.

That will put us to June. Community Sew Night. A night where groups of us bring sewing machines and we create quilt tops for community service. It might be something you'd like to do. If you don't have a group already together, contact our Community Service group and they will help you get into a group. There's always room for one more group. Do yourself a favor - come join in the fun, you'll be glad you did!
