Guild Activities

Optional Blocks

Block raffles are held each month. At the beginning of the member year, a booklet of optional block patterns is given out. A packet that contains additional fabrics for the optional block is available for a nominal fee. You make your block for the designated month and bring it to next meeting. Your name goes into a basket. If your name is pulled from the basket, you win all the blocks for that month.

Raffle Basket 

At each monthly meeting, a lucky person wins a $50 raffle basket of fabric with books or patterns from a local quilt shop. Tickets are $1.00 per chance.
Show and Tell
        Spotlight the work of YOU and your fellow members.
Each winter, the Flower Valley Quilt Guild holds a members retreat weekend. The retreat lasts from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. Information and reservation forms are published in the newsletter. Various projects and lectures are offered along with lots of fun and cookie breaks. Sleeping is optional.

First Thursday

On the first Thursday of the month starting at 7:00 P.M., members get together for an informal gathering held in a member's home. A sign-up sheet for hostesses is available at the guild meeting. This is primarily a social meeting-lots of free quilting advice, but little stitching! This is a great way to get to know other quilters.

Charity Quilts

Our guild is very active in making and giving away quilts to special groups. Usually one meeting per year is dedicated to making or finishing charity quilts that members have been working on.
