    I'm founding a branch of the Modern Quilt Guild in my town and our first meeting is coming up...

    I'm curious... what do you really like about your quilt guild or group? I would love to see what you guys think...

    I'm also curious about quilt guild games that you play. I want this guild to be a fun thing to do so I would love some input :)

    Quilting groups can be fun. But it's what you put into it also. You need to be part of it not just a member. It's alot of work. So if you want to be part of the qroup you need to do something for it. It's not for someone that doesn't have a lot of time..

    we only have 5 left in our group. not a guild. We all left a guild because it seems majority of them were very catty and always talked about other peoples business. now we have a great group, talking about the old days, funny times sadtimes about ourselves. We also share a lot of things especially if someone is making a scrappy quilt and needs a particular color, we all dig in and make it happen.

    I like the small groups "bees". Our guild is very large, so the best way to get acquainted is to join a "bee". I belong to 2 bees, one is small with 6 members and the other is a Quilts of Valor bee that has quite a few.

    What I love about our group of about 15 is the love of the same art - a passion - the sharing of ideas and fabrics. At the moment we are all working on a civil war quilt design, each making her own quilt, in her own color palette and in her own desired size. It is going to be exciting to see them all side by side - same pattern - but very different.

    I had attended another group in another state, but it lasted just one session - the reason is that it was a gossip gathering and not a quilting gathering. I was appauled and never went back. Our group talks about quilting, we share ideas and help one another, we sometimes talk about our families, but always in a positive way, and we enjoy each other and our passion for quilting. We always leave having gained new knowledge, and feeling great about our art form. Isn't that the whole point of a guilt group?

    I love the members of my guild. They are just wonderful. At one of our retreats we played fatquarter bunco. A first at bunco for a lot of the ladies. Had a wonderful time.

    I love my Stitchin' Sisters! They are a diverse group and always have something interesting going on. It is a small group and each and every one has become a dear friend.

    We all share different projects and have a variety of skills and passions.

    I belonged to one guild for one year. I hated it. I was the youngest (23 at the time) and was told that I shouldn't be a member because I wasn't old enough to quilt or have the respect needed to properly care for a quilt.

    So this board is my guild. I love it here.
