What We Do

Monthly Programs & Special Events

Every month we fill our meeting with quilting demonstrations and/or guest speakers. In addition, we also schedule special events that occur outside of our regular meetings.  To view our current list of programs and special events, check out our calendar!

At each meeting, members are encouraged to participate in our Show & Tell. Members are able to show off a project they are working on or have finished. Members also show projects submitted to shows that judge their works. Many members are award winning quilters with many accolades to their credit. So join us each month for Show & Tell and see the wonderful projects members are making!

Guild meetings will be cancelled for Bad Weather when Boone County Schools are closed. If you are unsure and need to contact someone, please contact Cabin Arts until 6:00 P.M, or check our Facebook page.


Sit -&- Sews !!!   (Join US!!)

Every month we have opportunities to get away from our daily lives and spend time doing what we love!  QUILTING!!   (Or whatever your passion… crocheting, knitting, applique, etc.)   An ironing and cutting station will be available, so just bring your project and other supplies.  Many people bring their sewing machine, but some just bring hand-work.

In general we have one Weekday Sit -&- Sew and one Saturday Sit -&- Sew each month.  Usually they are the second Thursday and the fourth Saturdays of the month at the Burlington and Union Libraries, respectively.  ANYONE is welcome to join us for a day of fellowship and fun.  Check the newsletter (or one of our members) for dates and times. 


Quilters’ Day Out

Kentucky is the birthplace of Quilters’ Day Out. We celebrate each year on the third Saturday in March. In 2017 it was Saturday, March 18.   The show was held at the Boone County Extension Building from 10 to 3 with lunch and snacks available for sale with free admission and parking. There were beautiful quilt displays and many other activities including a special guest Frieda Anderson. Click below for more details.

In the Community…

Our 2017 Community Project was for the Brighton Women’s Recovery Center in Northern Kentucky.  44 quilts were made by Stringtown Members, a total of 52 quilts were donated.

For 2016, we completed 2 Community Services Projects.   It is important to our guild to give back to the community. We made over 75 quilts for A.L.S. Association to help with comforting quilts for their patients. and we made over 75  baby blankets for CARE NET services of NKY that will be offered as an additional reward/incentive for completion of parenting classes.
