Info Section

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!

Need 'somthing' to sew?

If you could use a break from sewing on your latest quilt...

Anyone interested in making masks? This is a project for you to make masks for yourself, your family, your friends or to be donated to others in need.  As the nation reopens, it will be more important than ever to be safe. Everyone needs to wear a mask!

Kits: Mask kit includes 10 Pre-cut Olson Masks.  The fabric has been washed. The mask kit does not include filter (4 layers of paper towel work best).  The mask kit does not include ties. Ties are a personal preference and there are many different options.
