Do most guilds meet at night? I would like to join a local guild ,but the ones near me meet at night. I can not see to drive after dark. Why don't they have a morning group for those that don't work and can't see to get out and about after dark?
I was just wondering if this is a problem for anyone else? I am just venting this morningI guess. This board always has an encouraging word for everone and I guess I just need one this morning.

Mine meets on the Second Tuesday of the Month, at 9:30.
I usually miss it because I am very involved with MOPS as a Mentor mom and we meet every other Tuesday. It just happens that they fall on the same day quite frequently!
I work from 12-5 Tuesdays so I can help out at MOPS :cry: :cry:

you should check the senior centers. there is one near my house that has a quilting group that meets there during the day for quilting. Not sure if they are their own guild or just something like a sewing bee, but it is something to check out. hope this helps.

Our local guild meets at 10am on the 2nd and 3rd Tuesdays. But that is a hard time for me. I do wish they would meet in the evening.

While at Plattsburgh my guild met on Wednesdays at 6:30 ending at 9:00PM. This was good because I was working and things were a lot more relaxed. I couldn't do those hours now if I wanted it. I joined one in NYC and the meetings are on Saturday, starting at 10:00 with meeting of different interests groups. You decide to which ones you want to go. The whole guild meets at 1:00PM and is over before 5:00. They bring great guest speakers too. In November is Laura Wasilowski from The Chicago School of Fusing. Looking forward to that one.

My guild meets the first Monday of the month from 6:30 to 9. Luckily I don't have far to drive b/c I hate driving at night.

Since I am retired, I don't like evening or weekend things. I joined my guild mainly because it is the only one I could find that meets during the day.

Our guild has a 9:30am meeting and another at 6:30pm. But we have almost 200 members so unless we found a bigger place, we couldn't all fit in there at the same time anyway.
