    BUT---GO Slow, don't say alot just observe, listen real carefully before you ask a question. Some guilds are dictatorships and the hirarky is real stiff.

    The usual difference between a quilting club and a quilt guild are clubs are usually just a group that gets together and sews. Guilds have by-laws and elect officers and generally follow Roberts rules of order for meetings.

    If you can't locate a guild thru you local quilt shop, what about asking if there is a group of quilter that gather informally at a church, community or senior center? Also check on the internet for charity quilt groups (i.e. Project Linus). I have met wonderful ladies & learned a tremendous amount from working with my local Project Linus chapter 'blanketeers'. Plus they don't charge dues like the local quilting guild does.

    I would love to join Quild club but unfortunately I work 2nd shift. Would love to have some of the discount. Sad I can't qualify for them. But it be worth checking into in your area and see if you like it.

    I stand corrected, apparently. We (my friend Cindi and I) were at the show in Houston last week, and there was a special exhibit of Japanese quilts. A few of the quilters were there, and we were able to chat with them, and that's what they told us - they don't have guilds.

    Maybe that's changing and a guild trend is sweeping Japan.

    I am part of a sewing group. Nothing real formal. We have a quilt show every year which the entire community is encouraged to participate.We go on shop hops together and enjoy each other's company. No quilt police.
    Have a good day!

    Google quilt guilds in your state and you will find out whether there are any guilds near you. Guilds typically meet once month, have some sort of program presented by a quilter with a particular skill, do commun ity servie projects, have all day sew days several times each year, have challenges for members, etc. As a rule, quilters are the nicest people you will meet. Try it!You will like it! dnf

    Sadly the closest one to me is over half an hour away and meets during my daughters bedtime.

    But I have an entire online community and I've met some some quilters who work at my local Joann's that I jibber jabber with all the time.
    I guess we all have different ideas of how far is too far to go to a meeting. I would drive an hour to go to an interesting meeting (each way).

    Let Daddy put your daughter to bed, or get a sitter if he works nights and go meet some new people. If they meet every week try to go at least once a month.

    Make time for yourself.
