Our Community Service Program is a year round, ongoing program. Members have a choice to take home materials for making a quilt, or you may use fabric from your own stash to make a quilt. You could help cut fabric for our blocks; sign up to make quilt deliveries, sew on bindings or even help us by quilting a quilt. We encourage each member of our Guild to get involved.
