Friendship Groups

Friendship Groups are the key way to get connected within the guild, build new relationships and share and develop quilting skills. Contact the Friendship Circle Chairperson to find a friendship group to join.

Friendship Block Exchange

A drawing is held two times per year for the Friendship Block recipient(s). The winner(s) selects a block pattern and provides instructions and fabric as desired. Members volunteer to construct and donate the block. Those eligible must have belonged to the guild for at least six months and have completed at least two friendship blocks during the preceding two years. Three members will be chosen in March and again in September to be winners of the Block exchange.

Guild Challenge

This year the Guild Challenge for Members theme is “Covid-19 Pandemic and what it means to you.”

Chairperson is Sandy Buckley.

Lucky Blocks

A block pattern is published each month in the newsletter. Members are encouraged to make a block (or several) to turn in at the next meeting. Members receive one chance, for each block they turn in, to win a set of blocks. One set of blocks per participant per drawing.

The 2021 Blocks are traditionally pieced. If you make two blocks, one for guild and one for yourself, you will have a quilt top at the end of the year.  For everyone who finishes and shares their finished quilt top  we will enter your name for a prize.   If you need help, please call or email Laurie Paurazas and she will answer any questions you may have.
