We meet on the first and third Saturday of the month for a Sew Day. At noon on the first Saturday, we break for a guild meeting.
Dates for meeting may be changed due to holidays or conflicts. Check the Calendar Page for possible changes.
We gather at The McSwain Agricultural Center at
2420 Tramway Road, Sanford, NC.
As a non-profit organization, community service is part of our undertakings. We have provided quilts and pillowcases to organizations for use and/or to raise funds through raffles.
In 2019 we donated 14 quilts to the Carolina Trace Fire Department; 70 pillowcases to Foster Care, Lee County; 43 pillowcases and 9 quilts to Haven House; 40 pillowcases and 3 quilts to Ronald McDonald House, Chapel Hill; 1 quilt to More Life, Veterans.org; 2 quilts to CTCC Women's Club; 8 quilts to special needs, Moore County; and 8 quilts to VFW Sanford.
We have made financial donations to causes such as Hurricane Relief, Camp Royall Scholarship Fund, and collected supplies to be donated to Haven House.
Guild members are encouraged to make NICU quilts in 2020. Quilts should be 36" x 36", 100% cotton; please do not use minky or metalic fabric or thread.
