Volunteer Opportunity

Posted November 12, 2015; updated November 26, 2015

Quilt Stand Setup and Take Down
We need a couple of people to help set up and take down quilt stands used by the speakers at our meetings. You need to come 45 minutes before the meeting and stay 20-30 minutes afterwards. This is a fun way to get up close and personal with the fabulous quilts created by our speakers. Pick your favorites! Email Ann Brooks at with information about which months you can help.

Holiday Charity Benefit Party

Posted November 12, 2015

Conversation, treats, beautiful music, fun quilts, and two deserving charities--sounds like a party to me! Join us at 7 PM on December 14th at WestGate Church.

Bring your hand projects and spend the evening slow stitching while listening to Silverwood, a flute, folk harp and guitar combo. Bring treats to share. This is not a cookie exchange just a way for us to share delicious munchies. We'll provide coffee and tea. Bring your favorite holiday or winter quilt for us to admire during Show and Tell.

We are supporting two charities this year. Please bring a monetary donation to Second Harvest Food Bank. If you would like a receipt for you donation, we have a form for you to fill out. Help our community with much needed food. We are also supporting Loved Twice, a charity that provides new and gently used baby clothes to families in need. Loved Twice accepts these items for babies up to 12 months old only:

  • quilts
  • hats, socks, and bibs
  • board books • clothing
Wear your festive holiday duds and join us for a chance to relax with friends!
