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 58 members strong and growing.
- In 2022, we donated 686 scent cloth packs to the Northside Hospital NICU, 639 pillowcases to Ryan’s Cases for Smiles, and 36 quilts to Quilts for Kids, distributed to the following hospitals: NE Georgia Medical Center, Athens Regional, Scottish Rite, and Egleston. Other quilts were donated to a domestic violence shelter and to foster care children.
