The guild was founded in 1997 and meets on the first Monday of each month. Benefits of membership include monthly speakers – local and nationally known experts who share their methods and techniques – including workshops. Members also enjoy quilt retreats, bee groups, an annual challenge and community service projects.
Come join us to share our motto of
LAFF - Laughter, Acknowledgement, Fun and Friendship
Guest Policy: We encourage members to bring guests that have an interest in quilting. If you have a guest that would like to attend, there is a $5.00 charge when we have a speaker, otherwise they are allowed two free visits. After that they would be expected to join the guild.
