Sew-Ins
Sew-ins are held at least once per quarter, including a Charity Sew Day once a year.

Monthly Meetings
Monthly meetings are usually on the first Saturday of the month at 10:00 am in the basement of Central United Methodist Church. We begin with general guild business, followed by our Program. Show & Tell is our favorite way to wrap things up!

Guild Challenges
Guild challenges are a great way to build new skills and step out of your comfort zone. In February the quilts hang in a special exhibit at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival.

Educational Programs
Presentations are usually be given by our membership and other local talent.  As we grow, we look forward to welcoming national talent to our little corner of the world.

Community Service Projects
We choose a minimum of one service project each year. In addition, guild members sew hats and scarves for the CUMC’s homeless outreach to support their efforts and to thank them for graciously allowing us to use their facility.

Swaps, Block-of-the-Month & Games
Every odd month we have a new swap where members can give and receive while having fun. In even months we are given a new block-of-the-month, and members can make as many blocks as they’d like for a chance to win them all!  We love games, and you never know what we’ll come up with to make a meeting fun.

Members-only Facebook Group
Our facebook group offers members a “family only” place to share, learn and grow together.
