Retreats

Open to members first. If space is available, non-members may register. 


Bring your projects, your machine, and whatever supplies you need. Remember to bring a "time out box" for any projects that are not behaving. It's a good idea to bring a small, easy project so you are guaranteed to have something to show at Show & Tell! 


Meals and accommodation included with registration. Bring snacks for the snack table, and your favorite beverages.

Special Interest Groups

Dye Group meets once or twice a month as needed. Contact Lorna Themelis for information.


GO Group meets monthly as needed. If you have a GO cutter, bring it. If you don't own a GO cutter but you're interested in learning about them, come anyway. Contact Marianne Ashby for details.


"Sew Far Sew Good" Group. Meets once a month at a member's home to sew, share ideas, and have some fun. Contact Bonnie Taylor-Wachowicz, Joy Hansen or Christine Wiggett for more information.  

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer within the guild - it's a great way to get to know people, be part of shaping our Guild's future, and learn about quilting.


Our next quilt show is scheduled for 2020. All members contribute in some way towards a successful quilt show. Whether it's displaying your work, volunteering during the show, or volunteering with the hundreds of details that come together before the show,  it all helps. Please contact the Executive to let them know how you can help.
