Uncommon Threads Quilt Guild plans an annual retreat at St. Columba Retreat Center in Germantown, TN. It is the 2nd weekend in November and runs from Friday to Sunday with a pre-retreat day on Thursday and post-retreat day on Monday that are extra.
The retreat is open to all interested quilters with preference and cost advantages given to guild members.
UTQG has an ongoing community service project providing quilts for our local hospice centers. 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.
