The guild is a non-profit organization and was originally started in May of 1995. The ladies who started the guild wanted a place where they could come to be with friends and to have a great time while doing something they loved. Together they created a guild where people of many shapes and colors get together to do charity work as well as things for themselves.
What We Do
Together we create pieces for Florida Baptist Childrens' Home, Quilts for Project Linus, pillow cases for ConKerr Cancer, lap quilts for those in nursing homes and the VA hospital, and so much more.
