Yankee Quilters Guild - Sep 13

Love to quilt or eager to learn? All area quilters are invited to attend the monthly meeting of Yankee Quilters Guild, a charitable organization which provides comfort quilts to those battling serious illness while offering an artistic outlet for those who love the craft of creating quilts from scratch. An organizational meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 13th, at 7:00 p.m. at St. John’s Church, 237 Pleasant Street, in Franklin.

Yankee Quilters meets monthly in Franklin but draws members from surrounding towns. Everyone is welcome whether they're an experienced quilter or just getting started. Quilters of all ages work together on charity quilts, exchange information and tips and techniques from traditional to modern, and learn from each other's work. Meetings are held at St. John's Episcopal Church on the second Tuesday of each month, with charity work, workshops, trips and other activities throughout the year.

The September meeting will include a trunk show of a member’s recent quilts, “show and tell” of work completed by members over the summer, and a “block of the month” swap open to all members. The theme for the September block swap is “Black and Orange.”

New members and guests are welcome at all meetings. The first meeting is always free for anyone who wants to find out what the group has to offer. There is a $5 fee for guests.

Membership year runs July-June; new membership is $35/year and returning members pay $25 per year.
