Guild Activities
   
Monthly meetings consist of social time during which members
enjoy visiting, browsing the guild's extensive library, and getting
help with knotty problems they encounter with their current
projects; a short business meeting during which the board shares
information about upcoming events, activities, workshops and
programs and reports to the membership progress on ongoing
guild projects; a speaker or quilt related program; and SHOW &
SHARE, during which members proudly display their latest
creations.

Classes, workshops, social events, and bus trips to quilt shows
and shops are planned at various times throughout the year.

Monthly Day Bees and Fun Days are free to all members and
consist of member-taught mini-workshops on patterns and
techniques.  They are a wonderful opportunity for both fellowship
and learning.

Comfort Quilts are sewn by members and donated to children and
adults at Oconee Memorial Hospital, Hospice of the Foothills, Safe
Harbor, and local Nursing Homes on a regular basis.  When a
non-local need arises at organizations like Ronald McDonald House
or Katrina Rescue, LMQG members rise to the challenge to
provide the comfort a soft, warm quilt to make the recipient's
days a little brighter.

The guild sponsors a Quilt Show every two years at which quilts
produced by members in a variety of categories from traditional
bed quilts to art quilt wall hangings, wearables, and other quilted
home decor are displayed.  Demonstrations, special exhibits
reflecting guild projects and challenges, and displays honoring
special guild members are an integral part of the show.  A donation
quilt made by members, a fat quarter basket prize, and a charity
auction are part of the excitement at this wonderful biennial
event.
