Welcome to Rhodyquilt.com

 

Meetings at :  Elks RV Park Clubhouse at 5607 Mercer Lake Road, Florence, Oregon

We are a group of quilters who love the art of quilting and getting to know other quilters in our community who share our enthusiasm. We welcome anyone who would like to join our guild and learn a new quilting skill and/or share some of your knowledge with us. We are looking forward to meeting new quilting friends.

About our Guild:

Since its inception in 1992, the Rhododendron Quilt Guild has increased in membership and it is still growing. Yearly we make a raffle quilt with the proceeds benefiting a local charity in our community. Baby quilts for the Pregnancy Center, clothing protectors for Assisted Living facilities and quilts for the Veterans Association are among the many projects that we apply our love of quilting toward. Regular meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month excluding November and December due to the holidays. They start at 10:00 a.m. and normally run 2 hours. 

There are Satellite groups that also meet once or twice a month; new groups are formed as the need arises.

What you can look forward to: 

The first meeting  on the 2nd Wednesday of the month is a General meeting with the following activities:

Block of the Month: Members make as many blocks as they wish and enter their names once for each block. A name is drawn and the winner receives all the blocks entered!

Sew and Tell:  where members can share their finished projects with an appreciative audience.  Sign up before the meeting at the registration table.   

The second meeting is held on the fourth  Wednesday of each month.  It emphasizes social and education activities such as: Sew Days, Trunk Shows and Instruction Classes. This meeting will be cancelled for Thanksgiving and Christmas. 10 am to 6pm same location,  Sewing supplies: Irons and ironing boards will be available for your use.
