Committees

We’ve heard that “It takes a village,” not only to raise a child, but also to have a quilt guild! We need your help to make our guild better by giving of yourself. Whether you are a new quilter, new to our guild, a seasoned committee or board member, or anyone in between, we need you! We all have skills that have developed throughout our lifetimes. We need business and organizational skills, photography skills etc.!

We are asking you to share your skills and abilities with your guild and fellow quilting friends and become a member of a committee. Each committee has a chairperson and others with specific jobs, cross-trained to help in other areas of their committee when needed.

The Board meets four times a year and works together with the committees to get ideas and make plans. You are encouraged to become a member of one or more committees or groups.

Current committees include:

Block of the Month (BOM)
BOM Committee is responsible for planning the BOM’s, preparing a sample block and instructions, which will be distributed at the meetings. They also submit a photo of the block and the instructions to the newsletter and website committees for publication.
