Currently The group of about 70 women from Greenville and surrounding towns and counties meet weekly and monthly to enjoy and promote the art of quilting. Anyone interested in learning or increasing their knowledge of quilting is welcome to attend and invited to join the guild. If you've recently moved into the Greenville area and are looking for not only a place to share your love of quilting, but want information about our activities, please let us know! As of June of this year we have 80 registered members; some are brand new to the sewing machine; some are experienced seamstresses but have never quilted. Not to worry! We all want to help you learn what we've learned; that quilting is an "addictive" activity, filled with tons of fun at our various meetings. Our biggest meeting is every 2nd Thursday evening, about 6:30 p.m. at the First Christian Church off 14th St. Extension (Family Life Center). A fairly regular group of us meet every Monday evening about 6-8:30 p.m. at the Parks & Recreation Craft Center, off Cedar Lane next to Jaycee Park (runs off 10th St). Mondays we teach new quilters, work on our quilts, cut up fabric for charity quilts, discuss latest projects, perhaps just knit and chat! It's our informal gathering to "get out of the house" and let the men and kids do the dishes! If you do plan to come on Mondays, please call President Sherrill Boyce at: 252-364-2260 to make sure someone is present to welcome you!
For those who do not drive in the evening, there is a day group that meets each 4th Tuesday of the month at the above mentioned Craft Center off Cedar Lane. They meet 1-3 p.m. Whatever your level, whatever your interests, we're here to help and we'd LOVE to meet you. Please call Rosena Grott, President, 252-347-4751(H) or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
September Message from our President:
Dear Fellow Members,
We are pleased to announce we have 70 members in our guild, delighted to have so many new members. Members are encouraged to attend guild meeting on the 2nd Thursday of the month at first Christian Church or day meeting the 4th Tuesday of the month at Jaycee Park and Recreation. At the monthly meeting we discuss our goals, projects, charity work, projects, finances and professional workshops. At each meeting we have a program where a member will demonstrate a block, quilting technique, how to use quilting tools or any related quilting topic. The guild is a wonderful way to learn about: the art of quilting, professional workshops, quilting retreats, guild committees, needs to volunteer for programs, and meet new people. We encourage members to become involved in our various activities; it is the best way to meet other members.
Quilt club continues to meet every Monday at Jaycee Park 6pm-9pm. This meeting is open to the public. Sewing Bee at the Senior Center meets every Thursday on the following schedule: 1st and 3rd Thursday 1p-5p, the 2nd and 4th Thursday 8a-5p. Join us to make new friends and learn the art of quilting.
Rosena Grott, President.
