We meet at 9:30 a.m. at University Baptist Church, 3200 Arlington Loop, in Hattiesburg.
Guild Meetings: (2nd Wednesdays in Kelley Fellowship Hall--see Calendar for specifics):
These monthly meetings provide an informative program to help us improve our skills. Show and Tell allows us to get and give encouragement. Three monthly smaller group meetings are held unless otherwise announced.
Children's Quilts Group (1st Tuesdays in Choral Hall--see Calendar)
We have a large closet containing tables, fabric, batting, and supplies. We bring our sewing machines and work together, making quilts to donate. This is also a teaching/learning activity where new quilters can work with more experienced quilters to get hands-on experience in all phases of quiltmaking.
Leader: Mary Nell Magee
Boutique Group (2nd Thursdays in Choral Hall--see Calendar)
We use our quilting and sewing skills to create boutique items that are sold at our biennial quilt shows. Many people look forward to purchasing unique Christmas gifts from our boutique. The money generated here helps to fund charitable organizations, libraries, and community education.
Facilitator: Shirley Wiltshire
Workshop Group (4th Wednesdays in Choral Hall--see Calendar for exceptions)
Workshops usually are based on the educational feature from the previous Guild Meeting.
