Our guild was founded in 1999 and our members include beginners through experts, with interests from art quilts to traditional quilts in an array of materials. We meet monthly to share a love of quilts and quilt making. We also sponsor seminars, exhibitions, workshops, and community service projects.
Thanks to Olga Schrichte of Frederick, MD, for the image of "The Spires of Frederick," above, which she designed and created in August 2015.
Next meeting: February 1, 2018
Due to the cancellation of our January meeting due to inclement weather, our February meeting will be the January Program, previously scheduled. Featured on the February Program will be a trunk show presented by Danita Frisby and Peggy Haser, guild members. Also part of our evening together will be "Show Off Your Favorite Dish". This special fund raiser is were everyone brings a favorite dish, eats and competes with each other for our most favorite dish. We'll raise money for the guild by buying tickets that we use to vote for what we like best in all categories: appetizer, salad, entree, or dessert. Bring your dish with an ingredient list, any items you have made for the 2018 Raffle Baskets, as well as your Show and Tell.
The annual Valentine's Gift Exchange will aslo be included in our February meeting. As in the past, members who wish to participate are asked to bring a wrapped sewing/quilting related gift. (Homemade items are always welcomed.)
