Currently The group of about 65 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 January of this year we have 60 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 Sherrill Boyce, President, 252-364-2269 (H) or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Below is the 2015 QGQ raffle quilt, "After the Storm"; a queen sized batik rainbow inspired quilt made by members of the guild. Tickets for the raffle sell from any member at $1 each, or 6 tickets for $5. It's a phenomenal quilt and the photo does not do it justice! It is available to see at Sew & Vac on Firetower Rd and will be at various other venues through the spring. Come see it at our March 20-21st Quilt Show at 1st Christian Church, 2810 E. 14th St. 10 a.m. -5 p.m Friday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Saturday. See you there!
