The Quiet Valley Quilters Welcome You
What can you expect at one of our meetings? Among other things; lots of laughs, beautiful quilts, and nice people!
Members check off their names on the sheet provided by the Membership Coordinators as record of attendance. Yearly membership is $20 and is due to the Membership Coordinators by October 1.
Show & Tell
Members bring quilted items to show and relate a little about the item to the other members. The Guild secretary records the information into the meeting minutes.
Sign-up sheets for the Monthly Workshops with supply lists as appropriate are provided.Workshop fees are $10 for Guild Members and $25 for non-members and are paid to the Workshop Coordinator. Workshops are held once a month, on a Saturday from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Church and are conducted by a Guild member or an outside instructor on various quilting techniques.
Wear Your Name Tag
Guild Members who wear their name tags get to take a 6 1/2″ square of fabric and are eligible to win a fat quarter of the fabric by placing their names in a basket for a drawing. During the meeting, a new member will be asked to draw a name from the basket. The person whose name is drawn wins the Fat Quarter and any 6 1/2″ squares that are left. NOTE: This is the same material as the 6 1/2″ square.
The Block Swap gives the Guild members the opportunity to try new and different blocks and is an excellent learning tool for them. Each month the Block Swap Coordinators assemble a Block package that includes a pattern and some of the required fabric; the Guild member supplies the rest of the fabric. Cost for the Block package is $1. The following month, the completed blocks are returned to the Guild meeting and those who have completed a block enter their names in a basket and are eligible to win all the completed blocks. During the meeting, a new member will be asked to draw a name from the basket.
The store provides quilt related items that members may buy at wholesale prices. Guild members can shop prior to the monthly meeting or during the refreshment break. The Coordinator will try to accommodate special requests.
Book & Stencil Library
The Guild has books and stencils, located in the storage closet, that members can borrow in the honor system.
Guild members bring quilting related items they no longer want and put them on the “Free Table” for other Guild members to take. If the items are not taken during the meeting, the person who brought them is responsible for taking the items home.
Guild members or Coordinators will share information with other members. Guild members will ask the Guild President prior to the meeting to be put on the agenda or will ask during the meeting.
Upcoming Workshops: Workshop Coordinator will discuss the upcoming Workshops. Block Swap: Block Swap Coordinators will describe the monthly Block.
New Members and/or visitors will be asked to introduce themselves and may be asked to draw a name for the Block Swap and Name Tag baskets.
