We will be providing small classes focusing on one aspect of quilting. These classes will be $10 for kit and class and take place at the Cartersville Library with Cynthia Reed coordinating the specifics. Come out and learn a new technique or just join and have fun with other quilters.
Show us what you’ve got! Guild members who choose to participate in the annual Challenge project can make a quilt, wall hanging, mug rug or any quilted project using their own creativity and interpretation of the challenge criteria. The challenge guidelines change each year and a special challenge section is featured in our biennial quilt show.
Held 4 times each year, Quilt Camp is when members gather to quilt, eat and gab. We meet in the Cartersville Civic Center with our sewing machines and current projects ready to get to work (or play). Come for one day or all four, it’s entirely up to you. And since you can leave your machine all set up in our secure, locked room the coming and going is easy and convenient. Camp is a great time to get help or advice about a project, lay out a big quilt top to prep for quilting or just sit back and relax with fun ladies!
There is a nominal cost of $15 for the week.
Guild members who choose to participate in the mystery quilt are in for a big surprise! Guidelines to help you select fabrics and a size option (if there is more than one) are the first step. Then, each month a clue, also known as the next step, is revealed during the guild meeting, with the last being any borders or finishing details. Many members upload photos of their progress onto the guild Facebook page so we can all share in watching their fabrics come together. Capping off the fun is the big reveal of all the completed tops! It’s always exciting to see how different they all look.
A bee is simply a small group of people who gather and sew together. A list of current bees is available and the guild encourages members who wish to start a new bee. Although there are no rules for starting a bee (it can be as few as just two gals), a ‘queen’ bee must be selected for your group. She is your bee’s point of contact with the guild’s Bee Keeper. The Bee Keeper is responsible for relaying current status and contact information to the guild. To contact our bee keeper email ?
The Community Service committee suggests and manages projects or donations for the guild to support local organizations. Donations are collected at our monthly guild meeting and be sure to get a raffle ticket for each donation you make. A special drawing is made for members who contribute.
The Sunshine Committee is the point of contact between the guild and members who are experiencing illness or loss. We send cards to members in need of cheer or support and seek to keep our members well informed without inundating a friend during a difficult time. If you know of a member who needs a card please Text Joy Smith
The EVQG quilt show is held every other year, usually in October. For 3 days we take over our little civic center and decorate it from top to bottom with beautiful quilts! These quilts are grouped by genre and members bring decorations to cozy-up our space, making it a delightfully charming and totally unique show.
