We have several committees that help keep the guild going, consider joining one today! Please refer to the Members page to find contact information for the committee chairs.

Hospitality: Julie Putman is the head of this committee for 2021. Her crew normally make us feel welcome and provide a snack to nourish us during the meetings. At this time our Zoom format means we each get to provide our own snacks. Once we meet in public again the Hospitality team will make sure we feel at home!

Membership: Wanda Feder is watching over our membership. This group keeps track of our paid members and monthly visitors. They keep a tally of attendance and let us know when it’s time to pay dues.

Programs: Jayne Gates and Vickie Smith are in charge of the 2022 Program Committee. These gals plan our monthly events and workshops, bringing in presenters who share their love of quilting with us. Jayne and Vickie will be mentoring the 2023 Program Chairs Cheri Wenger and Becky Morello. During the meetings and workshops the Program Committee can use helpers, so be sure to offer your services if you are interested.

Charity: We have several charities and organizations that we support with our quilts and time.
Community North Charity Quilting: This committee is being broken up into several branches as it has grown to be a large endeavor. The separate areas will be:
The Liaison to interact with Community North Hospital is Pat Jones, the Store Room team is Sally Sandilands and Linda Garzynski, the Quilt Show Coordinator is Linda Westbrook, and the Quilt Raffle contact is Kerrie Galaga.
Lois Levine is in charge of the Tummy Time, Quilts for Kids, and Daymar Pillowcase charity sewing. More information can be find here.
Sally Young is in charge of the Pillowcase Bags collected to distribute to kids entering Foster Care or being removed from their homes. More information here.

Block of the Month: For 2022 the BOM Chairs will be Mary Boyden and Sharon Jones. This committee is by far the most fun! They bring us our monthly Block instructions and then collect and present the finished block at the next meeting. The blocks are then given to the lucky winners of the name drawing. Committee members share the work of presenting the monthly block and explaining its construction.

Website: Chris Behme and June Koeske are Admins for the website. This committee runs the Mudsocks website making sure information is up-to-date. If you enjoy website building please consider being a part of the team.

Sunshine: Ellen Hanson is the lead lady on this committee. Her crew includes: Samantha Berry, Barbara Broadlick, Mary Kraft. Lynn Hupp, Linda Richey, April Sterling.  These ladies provide our members with cards for birthdays, get well, and sympathy events. If you know of anyone who could use a note let them know.

Steals and Deals: This committee is in charge of member donated goods that are offered for purchase during meetings. During the months we are having Zoom meetings the committee chair, Melissa Schulman, will be offering garage sales at her home for the members to shop for stash! Look for the dates to be posted on the website and Facebook group.

Retreats/Quilt Shows: Usually this is the purview of the Vice President. For 2022 this will be Bonnie Dannenberg.

Social Media: Amy Klodzen is the Admin for our Facebook page. She provides access for new members and monitors content on our social media sites.
