First meeting is free for visitors, then $10 for a single meeting (fees could be more for special programming). After that we ask you to support and join our community by purchasing a membership to attend additional meetings and sew days and to participate in other guild activities.

By making at least one of the prescribed blocks for the month you will be entered into the draw for all of the blocks.  Even if you don't win the blocks, your block will end up in a fellow guild member's quilt.  We usually do about 8-10 lotto's a year and you have one year to complete a top.
