Joining a Friendship Group provides an opportunity to get to know other quilters with similar interests. Some say that their Friendship Group is the heart of their Guild experience!
Friendship group membership ranges from a few up to a couple dozen, although most are around ten members. Some meet weekly; some meet monthly; some meet on their own schedule.
Activities of Friendship Groups might include making a group quilt, challenging each other to learn something new, or just visiting over some handwork.
Sunshine Chair Sandy Moroney coordinates Friendship Groups for the Guild. If you would like to learn more, use our contact form, and we will put you in touch with Sandy.
