What's happening during 2021

Homestead BOM Jan-Dec

"I don't know many friends that like to sew as much as I do. I was waiting to find a group that wasn't super expensive to join since I had never been part of one- I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it. I was so excited once I saw what the planned projects were, the names of guest designers I hadn't heard of before - I knew I had to sign up as soon as possible! I am beyond happy I joined this one!"
Maggie
"What an awesome group! As a newbie to sewing and to quilting I have so much to learn and everyone is welcoming, inspiring and encouraging."
Loraine
"There is such camaraderie, encouragement, help, and fun."
Dottie

Now you really can enjoy sewing and quilting — anywhere, anytime.

"Charity blocks - I love being to use my skills to help others!"
Anne
"Good projects for both beginner and experienced quilters. Many of the ideas can be used in non-quilt projects but use quilting techniques."
Fran
"This is a great group for sharing ideas and accomplishment. Looking at the different projects and reading the comments, etc. always lifts my spirit and leaves me with a smile."
Carol
"I love being able to access the guild any time of the day or night. I've learned new techniques and have had my questions answered. The people part of the guild are so friendly and feel like my friends!"
Cheryl
"Patterns - love to see new things that people are making for others to create with"
Wendy
"As a fairly new sewer/quilter and having never been involved with a quilt guild before, this group has been great with information sharing, growing me with new concepts such as the mini quilts, and stretching me by pushing for accuracy, i.e. the block swap. I love that the group is multi-national so ideas flow from everywhere."
