Joining with Local Quilters

My area has a rich history of quilting and recently I thought it was time to meet some fellow quilters and become involved in their activities.  With that in mind, my dear husband enrolled me in the local quilting guild. Saturday was my first meeting.  What a great group of women (and two men)! I really enjoyed the morning and came home with some great opportunities to participate in their service projects.  I have some blocks to sew into a quilt top and I've made a few blocks to contribute to the next group project:

There is such a wealth of knowledge and experience in the group and I felt welcomed from the very start.  They meet monthly and every other month there is a program after the workshop. On the other months the group works on service projects after the meeting.  I don't consider myself a "joiner" so I"m extra glad for my husband's encouragement to be a part of this group. I'm looking forward to getting to know others who also love to sew and quilt.

  1. I have yet to take the plunge into a guild, but, since you mentioned there are guys in your guild, I am very encouraged!
