Groups

Several small groups have been established to focus on specific interests that may include learning a new technique, expanding quilting knowledge…

Open Sew Wednesdays
This is an informal group of quilters who meet in the Annex at Poricy Park on Wednesdays from 10 AM to 2 PM.  Participants  bring whatever they are working on.  Come with your problems and we will try to help you solve them.  Quilts that need a large space may be pinned or basted and we will help with that as well.  New quilters are welcome and encouraged to come.  Bring your lunch and meet new people or new friends.

Open Sew Saturdays
Dates to be announced! Stay tuned.

Community Service Quilts
This group meets at the annex from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM on the third Wednesday of the month.  We make warm quilts and doll/teddy bear quilts for distribution to community groups. The completed quilts bring comfort and warmth to people in need.  If you are interested in joining the group, please contact Maryann Devine.

Modern Quilts
The group is called a “modern quilt group” and has a limited number of spaces for individuals to attend the classes that meet once a month on a Sunday afternoon. The class helps the quilter develop skills related to making a variety of blocks to be assembled in a modern manner using alternate grid theory. The participants choose their own fabrics to use in the projects. The colors and patterns in the fabrics represent the individual quilter’s modern aesthetic.  The participants need to be able to sew a quarter inch straight seam and be willing to try something different than traditional piecing and assembling techniques.

Story Weavers  
This group has eight members who enjoy reading and quilting.  The group meets monthly and discusses a book chosen by a member. The quilt requirement is that each member makes a quilt inspired by one of the books the group has read. These quilts are shown as a grouping at the RRQ Quilt Show. Storyweavers does not have any openings at this time.
