Upcoming Meetings/Activities

If you are interesting in attending a meeting, guests are always welcome! 

Our meetings take place on the second Wednesday of each month at Ebenezer Church of Christ in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, at 3215 Saemann Avenue. 

Meetings alternate between afternoon and evenings: our January, March, May, July, September, and November meetings are scheduled at 1 pm and our February, April, June, August, meetings are at 7 pm. October, and December meetings start early and include a potluck (see meeting details below for times). The morning before each 1 pm meeting, there is a Sit and Sew for all guild members to come and enjoy community with your fellow members. 

At a typical meeting, we have an invited speaker that will give a lecture on a quilt related theme. We invite talented quilt and fiber artists from across the country to give a lecture and/or a trunk show of their quilts. We also have a short business meeting to review guild activity and a show and tell of our guild members most recent quilts.

Several times a year, usually coincident with a guild meeting day, the guild hosts a quilt workshop with an educator. We also have guild member teaching events. Links to upcoming workshop registrations and events can be found below when registration opens. 

Several times a year we have UFO (UnFinished Objects) sewing days, usually a Wednesday to Friday 9-4. You can leave your sewing machine and supplies in the locked up building overnight (Ebeneezer Church). See below for dates and registration link. (Contact: Carol Carriveau)

We also host two quilt retreats per year, typically in February and October. See below for the latest dates and registration form link. We also have a raffle for a free quilt retreat for members who have never been to our retreat. (Contact: Diane Liebenthal)

If there is enough interest, we host a bus trip to the Madison Great Wisconsin Quilt Show on the Friday of the show in early September. Pickups and dropoffs in Sheboygan and Plymouth and sometimes Fond du Lac.  See links and more information below. (Contact: Irene Taylor)
