President’s Message

WELCOME to our Website!

Stringtown Quilters Guild was organized in 1988 by a group of women, long-time friends and community leaders, who had one common interest, QUILTING. The Stringtown Quilters Guild has, for over 25 years, brought women and men together who are interested in the art of quilting and community involvement.
 
Our Guild meets monthly. Each meeting consists of a business portion covering old and new business. This is followed by a featured speaker and that followed by a member “show and tell”. Meetings are held at the First Church of Christ, 6080 Camp Ernest Road, Burlington, KY 41005. We meet the third Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m. and the doors open at 6:30 p.m. Come early to claim your seat for the evening.
 
Our goal is to bring more awareness of quilting to the community. In 2016, the Stringtown Quilters Guild sponsored a display of quilts at “Old Kentucky Christmas” held at the First Church of Christ in Burlington, KY. Guild members participated in an old time “Sit n Sew” letting the public ask questions about quilting techniques and the quilt displays. In 2016, we also provided over 150 quilts to our two selected charities; CARE NET PREGNANCY and the A.L.S. Association (more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease).
 
We are pleased to announce our annual Quilter’s Day Out will be held on March 18, 2017, in the new Boone County Extension Building, off of Rt. 18, Burlington, KY. Our featured speaker will be the well-known quilting artist, Frieda Anderson (check out her website: www.friestyle.com).
 
At our September 2017 meeting, we will have the pleasure of Karen Kay Buckley joining us for a trunk show. She will also be teaching classes on applique techniques.
 
We encourage all members to be active in the guild and to spread the joy of sewing, quilting, knitting or crocheting. We would love for you to check us out at one of our meetings, please take time to look at our schedule of upcoming events for dates and activities. You may also contact any of our Board members by using the e-mail addresses listed in the web site.
 
We hope that you have enjoyed browsing our website and we look forward to you joining us soon.
