The St. Mark’s Quilt Guild is a group interested in the art of quilting, gathered for fellowship, for learning, for sharing, for spiritual insight and for mission. New quilters, experienced quilters and quilt “fans” are all welcome and encouraged!
Meetings are held the first Monday of the month, September-July in the St. Mark’s library, first floor of the education building at 7:00pm-9:00pm. Other gatherings may be organized (sewing bees, outings, teaching sessions, retreats) as the participants show interest!
Each monthly meeting may include a speaker, a demonstration of a technique, sharing of quilt knowledge, a time for “show & tell” of finished (or in progress) quilts, a sewing session and other interests. Each session will open with a reflection on a spiritual aspect of quilting.
Any expenses will be paid by voluntary donations; i.e. a monthly donation ($1-$5) to cover general expenses and volunteers will provide refreshments each month. This is group-led so that leadership of each individual is encouraged.
There have been other projects: landscape block, sewing techniques, English paper piecing, a quilted frog, use and maintenance of featherweight machines, quick & easy English Rose pillow covers, binding, applique, and more. Feel free to suggest a skill or topic! For more information contact Wyn.
