What can you expect from the Loomis Quilt and Fiber Guild?

Programs - The Guild offers a wide variety of programs and workshops for its members. Workshops are intended to be self-supporting.

Opportunity Quilt - A quilt will be designed each year by guild members, to be shown and awarded at the annual Quilt Show or Tea.

Block of the Month - Each month the Block of the Month Committee selects a quilt block pattern. This pattern and some of the fabric to make the block is made available to guild members and guests at the general meeting. The member or guest makes the block and returns it at the following meeting. All of the blocks will be raffled off at the end of the meeting to a lucky quilter to create a quilt.

Cuddle Quilts - Quilts, usually lap or crib size, are made by Guild members and given to individuals and organizations in need. Many local organizations and schools will be recipients of these quilts. The quilts will also be given for national and international causes. The Cuddle Quilt Committee puts together kits of fabric and batting for members to assemble into quilts. Every member is responsible to turn in at least one quilt a year.

Secret Sisters - This committee organizes and administers the Guild's gift exchange program. Members who elect to participate give gifts anonymously to another participant.

Pot of Gold - The Pot of Gold Committee provides gifts at each general meeting to be raffled. Members have the opportunity to make donations to the Pot of Gold.

Fat Quarters - Each month has a Fat Quarter theme. Members have the opportunity to donate fat quarters. At the end of the meeting the fat quarters are raffled off to one or more contributors.

Show and Tell - At each general meeting, members come forward and "Show and Tell" and give information about their quilts, or anything else that they have been working on, that is related to quilts, wearable garments, or fiber items.

Discovery Days - A series of monthly educational workshops have been established for members. The workshops are typically taught by one of our members.

Annual Event: A quilt show will be held every other year in downtown Loomis. We will host another event in years in between such as a trunk show, tea or fashion show.
