GUILD PROGRAMS take place at the General meeting.

Guild programs begin at 7:30 PM. Beginning at 5:00 PM the meeting room is open
and is available for your use to work on your own projects or comfort quilts.

We generally have an experienced quilter available to help you with any questions or
problems you may have.

This time is also used for quick sessions on various techniques. Recently Michelle
Miroff held a session on making postcards and Chris Gordon held a session on
Ficklesticks.

Guild programs are held at the monthly
meeting which is held on the third
Monday of the month.

All members are encouraged to attend to
