Currently, we are holding in-person meetings simultaneously with ZOOM meetings! You can attend in-person meetings at our normal location, Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Oconomowoc, at the intersection of Brown Street (North CTH P) and Lake Drive. If you'd rather attend virtually, please make sure that Betsy Binney, our web hostess, has your correct, current email address. Our current plans are to return to holding all in-person meetings in June 2021 - please check back as that date approaches for updates.
As you can guess, COVID has caused some upheaval in last year and this year's schedules - we are currently putting together our monthly activities and having members sign up for refreshments. Please check back to see updates posted here when we have them.
The next meeting will start promptly at 7:00 pm on Thursday, March 18th - hope to see you all!

Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, has been quoted as saying “change is the only constant in life.” Boy, those old guys really knew what they were talking about! With the COVID-19 pandemic, things have certainly changed! We'll try to get back to a new normal after the 'Safer at Home' recommendation is over. Previously during the 2 to 5 pm time period, some of the members met to work on charity quilts... but we're re-thinking the use of that time. Stay tuned and we will post new ideas for the 2-5 pm time slot prior to our guild meetings!
Please check back for info on our upcoming virtual sew-in, scheduled for March 3, 2021
