|Purpose||Everybody's Quilt Guild welcomes all members and visitors to our home on the Internet. Here you will find information about our organization.|
|Service||About EQG History: Everybody's Quilt Guild began in October 1987 by a group of women who wanted to share their love of quilting. Guild members met in the individual homes of the members until they started growing. As the guild grew, it became a charter member of the National Quilting Association. Today, Everybody's Quilt Guild is still growing and has over eighty active members. Meetings & Membership: Everybody's Quilt Guild meets the first Wednesday of each month to conduct the business of the guild, engage in fellowship, and share quilting news and information. The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. at Ascension Church on Court St. in Westminster, MD. Anyone interested in the guild is invited to attend a maximum of two meetings as a guest before becoming a member. Membership dues are $35.00 per year. A mid-month meeting is held on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm also at the Ascension Church. This meeting is open to all who wish to participate in additional guild activities. Programs & Workshops: Our monthly meetings are designed to educate members in new as well as traditional quilting techniques and to promote the art of quilting in all of its forms. In addition to our regular monthly meetings, the guild sponsors several hands-on workshops throughout the year covering a variety of quilting techniques and related subjects. Events & Community Outreach: One of the big events that Everybody's Quilt Guild hosts is a Miniature Quilt Bingo held every year in the spring. It is a fun evening for guild members and guests. The guild also hosts a bi-annual quilt show. The quilt show, "Fall Harvest of Quilts" is held in the the fall during odd numbered years. You can find date and direction information by looking on our Facebook Page. Year round, Everybody's Quilt Guild focuses on community projects in which the art of quilting is used to promote a worthy cause. Comfort Pillows are collected and donated to the Woman's Place at Carroll Hospital Center and other area facilities as needed. Everybody's Quilt Guild also supports Linus Projects, making quilts for hospitalized children, and we offer a scholarship to a Carroll County Public Schools' student who is going on to pursue a study in textiles. Fun Stuff: Show and Tell - This is a time to show your quilt, wall hanging, or clothing project that you have completed. No need to be intimidated, the guild embraces all skill levels from beginner to advanced. Member's Block Exchange - When you join Everybody's Quilt Guild your name is placed on a list. Every three months a few names are announced and a stipend is given to those members to purchase fabric. The member then puts their fabric and directions into kits and lets other members of the guild take and put them together to make a block. The blocks are signed before being returned and this makes a nice member's quilt. Block of the Month - Learn a new technique every month and a chance to win enough blocks to make a top.|
