NEIGHBORHOOD QUILT CIRCLES
If you haven’t had the opportunity to be part of a Neighborhood Circle Group now is your chance. We have a number of existing Circle Groups and if there isn’t one that fits your needs we can look into starting some new groups. If you are looking for a Circle group please let me know and I will be happy to assist you in making some connections.

Neighborhood quilt circles are small groups of quilters that meet regularly to quilt and enjoy each other’s company. Some circles meet in homes and alternate hosting each other, while some groups find a meeting place, such as a community center or church. Some neighborhood circles use the opportunity to learn new techniques or to help each other. Others challenge each other to do special projects for the guild, community groups, or for themselves.
Neighborhood Circles are important to our Guild - this is how our members get acquainted, and they are where many guild members got their start in the organization. Joining a quilting circle is a great way to meet new quilters, learn new techniques and receive a lot of inspiration. There are some rumors going around that some members believe the circles are closed. Nothing could be further from the truth!
