Standing CommitteesWe have a wide range of on-going programs. Each year, volunteers become committee chairs for these programs, and that's part of what keeps the guild interesting and dynamic.
Auction Sheila Plagman
Block-of-the-Quarter Nikki Rainey
A pattern is handed out for the Block-of-the-Quarter. Make as many blocks as suits you and bring them to the following meeting. For as many blocks as you make, your name will go into a hat to be drawn to win all the blocks at the end of each quarter.
Challenge Quilts Mary Hattick
Each year the guild issues a challenge to the quilters. The chairperson of the challenge determines the rules. For 2013 the members are challenged to make a quilted item from the charm pack they received. The rules are that 1 more than half of the squares must be used, and the whole item must only use solids.
Charity Quilts-Safe Passage Ann Seymoure
Charitable contributions of hand made quilts made by members are donated to the Safe Passage on a monthly basis.
Charity Quilts-Veterans Julie McNames
Quilts made by members are being given to residents of the Veterans Home in Pueblo, CO.
Charm Strips and Squares Terry Putzstuck
Buy ½ yard of material (good quality), wash and iron before you cut. Be sure you have a least 6 strips 2 ½ inches wide, or 6" charm squares (about 18 charms). Bring your strips and/or charms in a ziplock bag with you name and phone number on the bag. The fabric will be swapped and you will get a mixed bag of strips and/or charms at the next meeting.
Comfort Quilts Susan Reed-Throckmorton
When a guild member gets seriously ill, we want to show them our support and offer them comfort by making a lap size quilt. Blocks are collected and made into tops, then quilted. As the need arises, the quilts are presented to the guild member.
