We meet September through May on the third Thursday of the month. Meetings are held at the Emmanuel Baptist Church. You are welcome to attend two meetings before you must decide to become a member. When the program includes a speaker, guest fee is $10 and member fee is $5.

Meeting Agenda

Doors open at 6:30 pm and meetings start at 7:00 pm, often with a short business session during which officers report on guild activities. The main part of the meeting involves a guest speaker, quilting demonstrations, a fundraising activity, or other events centered around quilting. Refreshments are provided during a break. Meetings often close with raffles and Show 'n Tell around 9 pm.

Sign-in

The membership committee is the first group you will see. All attending are asked to check in. Guests are welcome to attend two meetings prior to joining the guild. The membership committee collects dues for new members and renewals.

Door Prizes, Name Tags, and Other Fun

You are automatically given a door prize ticket for attending a meeting, and you get an extra door prize ticket for remembering your name tag. Name tags can be ordered through the guild or you can make one. We also have a 2.5" strip raffle and a Block of the Month ("BOM") collection at each meeting. Both are published in the guild newsletter and on the member's website.

Show ‘n Tell

Don’t be bashful! Most meetings include a show ‘n tell time when guild members can display projects for everyone to see. Ooohs and aaahs are not uncommon!! Show ‘n tell is a great deal of fun and everyone looks forward to it.

Raffle Tickets

Tickets are sold before each meeting and at intermission for 5 tickets/$1.00 or 18 tickets/$3.00. You are given a set of matching tickets – you keep one set and use the others for chances to win the item or items of your choice. Each item has a basket in front of it in which you can put your tickets. You can put them all in one basket or split them up. Members and local businesses often generously donate items for the raffle. Please contact the membership chairperson should you care to donate raffle items. Other items are purchased from raffle proceeds with the balance going to the treasury. By building this balance we can then invite speakers who would be of interest to all.

Membership Dues

Dues are paid annually and are determined by the Board of Trustees on the basis of projected budgets from all of the committee chairpersons. Our annual membership dues are $35 and due no later than the October meeting of each year. Anyone who joins after February 1, will pay half the annual dues which covers membership through June.  A Junior membership (ages 10-18) is available.  

The membership form is at the bottom of the page.
