Other Guild Activities Offered
To celebrate National Quilting Day (third Saturday in March), guild members gather for an entire day of quilting fun. Breakfast and dinner are provided by the guild, while lunch is quilters’ choice. Morning and afternoon classes are offered along with exchanges, drawings, raffles, and door prizes. In the evening, we all gather to complete a mystery quilt. This event is open to current guild members. An additional registration fee is required.
Annual Bus Trip
Each year, usually in the fall, members and friends board a bus and head out for a day filled with shopping and sightseeing. Although this event usually takes place in Lancaster, PA, other trips are possible if there is sufficient interest. This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know fellow guild members.
Each October the guild hosts a four-day quilt show at Porter Library. On average, there are 100 quilts on display. This is a wonderful opportunity for the guild to share their talents with fellow members, family, friends, and the general public. Viewers Choice Ribbons are presented after three days of voting.
