Thank you for your interest in the Chattahoochee Evening Stars Quilt Guild. We would love for you to join us. The guild welcomes all levels of quilters.
WHAT WE DO
The Chattahoochee Evening Stars have many annual, semi-annual, monthly and even weekly events to help further our goal of promoting quilting and fostering friendship.
At our monthly meetings, our members get an opportunity to show what they have been working on and finished. It gives the members a chance to Oooooo and Ahhhh and get ideas for stash busting projects!
Some facts about our Guild:
- We are 50 members strong and growing.
- In 2021, we donated 204 scent cloths for the NICU, 511 pillowcases to Ryan’s Cases for Smiles, 360 placemats to Meals on Wheels, 278 dog beds, 73 bibs, 42 turbans, and 81 quilts supporting local charities and causing many smiles!
- We have varied programs including nationally recognized speakers, educational workshops, community service events, and much more.
- Zoom is allowing many members to attend meetings, that couldn’t attend before.
- Our monthly newsletter showcases new skills, details about our upcoming programs and events and gives membership recognition.
