Join us at our next meeting - Covid hasn't stopped us from quilting!
Next Meeting: September 9, 2021
General Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month, from September to June.
Due to the Covid19 pandemic, our meetings are held on Zoom. The link to join will be sent to members and registered guests.
Each month we have a speaker or a demo - sometimes both!
Show & Tell is a little different on Zoom, and we've figured out how to make it happen! Members can send digital photo(s) of their show & tell items to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos are added to a presentation and makers can tell us about their projects.
You must be a member or a paid guest to receive the Zoom link.
Not a member yet? Go here to join!
Members have the opportunity to stay in touch and share photos of their projects in the private Facebook group.
COVID UPDATE: We will meet on Zoom until it is safe for us to meet in person again.
Zoom Room opens at 6:30 p.m., meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. and we finish up around 9:00 p.m.
Update: We have scheduled dates for in-person UFO weekends.These dates will be published if/when we know for certain that we are able to meet in person.
Until we can meet in person, we're rocking UFOs BY ZOOM!
Instead of meeting in person just a few times each year, we're meeting
EVERY SECOND SATURDAY
until further notice!
We begin at 9:00 a.m. and go until it's "time to stop". On New Year's Eve our sew day lasted till after midnight!
Bring your own beverages and snacks for the virtual "snack table"!
And of course, bring your projects!
You must be a member to join our Sew Days. Go here to join!
Well, of course workshops are looking different with Covid too! Here's what we've been doing instead:
Bearadise Block of The Month
Someone in the guild came across this project and suggested we get together to work on it. So we set it up.
On the first Monday of each month we have a Bearadise sew day from 10:00 am to "whenever". Usually we go till about 4:00-ish.
Go to Suzy's website here to get the pattern and details about the project. If you're late to sign up, you can purchase the pattern.
To join in on our Bearadise Sew Days, you'll need to be a member of the SPQG guild to get the Zoom link.
If you are interested in learning a new technique or a specific project, get in touch with the Program Coordinator. Your idea may be considered for an upcoming workshop.
Due to Covid we did not host our usual annual retreat for 2021. Stay tuned for the details on our next retreat.
Instead, we are hosting Zoom Sew Days every second Saturday until further notice.
Sew Days begin at 9:00 am and you must be a member to join.
Fiber Fly meets the second and fourth Tuesday of the month on Zoom 1:30 pm. Discuss fiber art projects, challenge each other, encourage each other. Open to members and non-members!
Handwork Group meets on Thursdays at 10:00 am by Zoom. We extended the timeframe and opened up the options so members can work on handwork projects or quilts.
Bring your projects and beverage, have a visit and share ideas. Guild members will receive the Zoom link.
Dye Group is currently not meeting. Contact Lorna Themelis for information. Open to members only.
GO Group is currently not meeting. 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. Open to members only.
NOT A MEMBER YET?
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.
Quilt Shows are scheduled every second year. 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.
Our Guild needs you! Members, consider putting your name forward for a position. Most positions require only a small amount of your time but the rewards for everyone are big. Elections are held at the May meeting.
