    I don't belong to a guild, I just want to say hi and welcome to the site!
    Life is too short not to quilt with someone you love.

    I have been to peggy's my self a few times. I rally only buy for a project now, not for the stash. I found I was not using most of what I had , because it either was not enough or did not fit in. Do you belong to a group over in Crystal River?

    Although I don't belong to a guild, I like working on charity projects. We have several going on now, check out our groups section, we are doing ongoing quilts for a children's hospital and for folks needing an extra boost in life, plus patriotic Christmas stockings for service people. Sometimes, we make special quilts for folks we know who are needing an extra quilty love to wrap up in! Plus there are various quilt-alongs with various themes, and block and scrap swaps. Maybe these will give you some ideas.

    Hi Pat!
    Welcome! I googled fun quilt guild activities and came up with some interesting things. Here is one link to look through the ideas that people posted www.thequiltshow.com ? View topic - Best/favorite guild activities - I need ideas! There were other pages to look at but I am sure you can just type in the same thing or something close to it. Hope that helps.. and good luck with getting President!

    Hi Pat, and welcome. I don't belong to a guild, per se, but do belong to the Ohio Star Quilters, which is more of a club than a guild. We are pretty informal. We take turns being the Quern Bee for a couple if meetings a year.... We meet Twice a month. The QB is responsible for the program at her meetings.... We teach other new techniques, usually have some kind of BOB every year, and have occasional guests in to speak.
