  • Philanthropy Workday; Sew days are always a fun and productive day where guild members volunteer to sew quilt tops that will be finished later and donated to charitable organizations. Please join us for the 2014 sew days - (10 am - 3 pm) at the Orange Quilt Bee. Philanthropy also collects quilts, quilt tops, place mats, and pillow cases at quilt guild meetings. The donations are given to charitable organizations.

  • Periodically there are additional activities offered by the guild. For instance, the Guild Challenge every other year, the Quilt Auction every other October,  and the Little Red Hen Auction at a selected guild meeting.
     
  • Secret Pals - Would you like to have a secret pal? Exchange Gifts each month with your new secret best friend. This is a fun way to get to know one of the other members of the quilt guild.
