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.

Workshops with the month's program speaker as the teacher are
held often throughout the year.  The guild subsidizes the cost of
workshops so they are affordable for the members.

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.

Philanthropy is an important part of the guild's mission.  Members
create comfort quilts which are donated to many organizations
throughout the county.  Other types of philanthropy include scrub
hats for pediatric patients, stockings for nursing home residents,
and quilts to celebrate and honor our veterans.  

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.  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.
