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!

Fun and laughter

For those of you who missed the treat of having Anelie Belden at our meeting April 7th, you missed a truly amazing treat. She has a way with words and kept us totally enthralled. She shared not only her beautiful quilts, but stories about herself that were a riot. As a guild, we laughed and then laughed some more. She told us what she did with dresden plates that didn't lay flat - or rather she showed us. This created more laughter.

Those who took the workshop on Friday will have more tales to tell come our share and tell in May. You don't want to miss the fun.

Our speaker in May will be Lura S-Smith who does the most amazing art quilts. This writer wishes my brain and hand could do the same.  You will have to see them to truly understand her talent.

Our June meeting will be our community sew night and I'm urging all to come and work. This night has been, in the past, a night of amazing quilt top production. I expect this year to be the same. Some groups have everything cut out before hand and get together more than one top. Some groups pull kits from community service and get tops together. Come join the fun - it's a portion of your membership requirement to make something for community service and this is a great way to share with the guild members and have a fun night.

July is our anniversary. This year we celebrate 35 years and hope all will join in on the fun. A potluck dinner and dessert is purchased by the guild. Sometimes we have games, sometimes we have silent auctions of items donated. We always have fun. So come join us and celebrate with fellow guild members.
