Our guild is located in Lakeland, Florida. If you love quilts and quilting we would love to have you join us as a member or guest.
The mission of this guild is to stimulate, encourage, and promote all aspects of quilt making, be it dating, collecting, preserving, appreciating, and/or creating new quilts. The objective is to encourage the appreciation and preservation of the art and craft of quilt making for individuals and the community through education, charity and fellowship.
Our activities include: Fellowship, Show and Tell, Updates on guild business, Programs with guest speakers (some nationally known), Trunk Shows, Workshops, Trips, Charity Projects, and a Biennial Quilt Show.
Regular meetings are held at 6:00pm on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
We also have a monthly "Sew-cial" meeting on the 1st Thursday of each month at 4:00 pm at Bethany Christian Church, 4224 Pipkin Creek Road, Lakeland, 33811. It features a potluck dinner and sit-and-sew where we work on our own projects, a charity project, or items for our boutique. We have plenty of quilt talk too.

(Ongoing ) Auction Block Project
Each month we will be provided with the pattern for a block.
If you make ONE - it will be donated to the guild to make a quilt for a future project
If you make TWO - the second will go into a grab bag for a lucky winner who will receive a whole pile of them to create something from.
If you make THREE - keep the third to make a Sampler project for yourself or as a gift. Or you may also donate that one to the guild.
Details will accompany the patterns for each block.
