ZOOM SEWING

Did you know we have our own Sewing Room? As guild members, you have access to the Zoom sewing room anytime there is not a guild planned meeting. Often you will see announcements of members Zoom sewing or you can create your own announcement. 

Please check the meeting calendar before planning a Zoom Sew Together. 

Quilting is always more fun with friends!

CLASSES

We are working on booking two teachers for 2025:

Susan Cleveland (March)

NOTE: Susan will be teaching at Quilt Week 2024 in Paducah

Jenny Lyon (August

The plans are for each to be a two day event - a 3-hour hands-on or demo class and a trunk show on Friday and a 6-hour class on Saturday. Please check out the class offerings for each teacher.

This plan may change but we hope to confirm soon.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

HOSPICE: UTQG has an ongoing community service project providing quilts for our local hospice centers at the Collierville location and at Baptist Hospital.  Making the quilts is a team effort shared by our members.

Community service provides kits from our donated fabric.  Members sew quilt tops. Then tops, batting, and backing are assembled and other members quilt them. Then as the process continues, still other members add binding and a label.

The quilts are approximately 40" X 60" but can vary in size.

In the past two years we have provided between 100-150 quilts per year.

SPECIAL PROJECT:  We are collecting wall hangings that you may have made but no longer want.  These will be used to decorate the family respite room at the hospital.  If you have any you would like to donate, be sure they have a sleeve and bring them to the November meeting.
