Block of the Month
The 2023 BOM gives you a new design and a new challenge each month. A new, original and fun, seasonal pattern and clear instructions are provided each month for a fee of $2 . . . such a deal! Background fabric is usually provided, and participants personalize with their own fabrics. At the conclusion of the general meeting, there is a drawing of that month's finished blocks, all of which go to the winner. There are usually enough to make a whole quilt.
We have a ‘Free Stuff’ area for quilt-related items that you no longer want, such as patterns, orphan blocks, fabrics, etc. Just bring your items to the meeting and put them in the ‘Free Stuff’ area. During the meeting someone might look at your donation and see a treasure. Please check after break to see if your donation was taken . If not, please take it home; you can always bring it back next month. Any free stuff left after the meeting will be discarded.
Get ‘Er Done (GED)
Do you have unfinished projects needing your attention? Want some motivation for finishing one or more of them? To participate in our 2023 GED! Simply complete a GED list of up to 6 unfinished projects, easiest listed first, include your name and email, and keep the bottom half for your reference. You may download the form below. Give us your list, along with a participation fee of $15 for the year, so we can keep track of your progress and enter your name for a drawing. Every other month, we will draw a project number that you are tasked with finishing by a future date. Bring proof of completion at the designated meeting and you’ll be eligible for a prize drawing. For questions or more information, contact Alice Gentry.
The Guild maintains a library of quilting books for members’ use. Guild members can check out up to three books a month, which are due back at the following guild meeting.
Sew and Sew Raffle
At each meeting, the Sew and Sew Raffle committee presents fabric, books, patterns, and other quilt-related treasures for which members and guests can purchase tickets. There are also quarterly prizes drawn from among those who purchased monthly tickets.
Show and Tell
During a portion of our monthly general meetings, members have an opportunity to share their quilts in a Show and Tell moment. We love to see what our members have been making!
What’s our favorite activity? Quilting. What’s our second favorite activity? Snacking. At every meeting, we ask certain members to bring finger-food snacks for guild members to enjoy. They need to be brought to the kitchen by 8:45am on the morning of the meeting. Please be sure to sign in to let us know who brought what. There is a Hospitality schedule and members are notified by email in advance when it's their turn.
