"Quilts have been binding women together for centuries. Whether it be through the simple exchange of patterns or a shared bag of fabric scraps, quilting is a true community effort."
~This Old Quilt, Margaret Aldrich, Editor
Are you interested in joining the Southport Quilters Guild? We'd love to meet you!
Here are a few important facts about our group:
Membership is open to anyone, at least 16 years of age, who is interested in the art of quilting.
The Guild's year runs from May 1 through April 30.
Annual dues are $20. Renewal dues are payable at the beginning of the fiscal year.
New members may join at any time. For those joining the Guild after the month of December, dues will be reduced to half of the current membership fee.
Each guild member is asked to contribute a handmade quilted item or an item made of fabric that can be sold at the Guild's primary fundraiser at the UW-Parkside Holiday Craft Fair. Members unable to contribute an item to sell are asked to make a $25 contribution to the Guild.
Guild members are encouraged to participate in the Hospitality Committee once each year.
To help us get to know one another, new members are issued name tags. Members are asked to wear their name tags to the meetings or pay a 25ȼ fine.
