I officially joined my local quilt guild last night, Helping Hands Quilt Guild of Dover, DE. I had been to one other meeting, and even though I am by far the youngest member, I was very happy to join.
If you live in Delaware and are looking for a guild, here is a website with info from Delaware Quilt Guilds.
A few things I really liked about the meeting:
- I found about the Quilts of Valor Foundation. Absolutely amazing!! I know I need to donate at least one quilt to that this year.
- There were some quilt magazines that people were getting rid of, so I got 2 new-to-me ones!
- The guild is participating in a Quilt Show in October, and they are collecting minis to sell and fund the guild. Now I have the urge to venture into minis… uh oh.
- Oh yea, and I found out that being a guild member, I get discount cards to JoAnn’s and other shops!! Jackpot!
I am very excited about joining my first guild, and look forward to all the fun adventures it will bring.
