Sit-n-Stitch Groups

A “Sit-n-Stitch” is a group of members who meet weekly, bi-weekly or sometimes once a month. Some groups meet in a member’s home on a rotating basis and work on their own individual project. Some groups meet at a specified location and work on a service project. We have several of both of these types of groups in our guild. If you are interested, please call Marsha Walper. For contact phone numbers, please consult the Quilter’s Unlimited Directory available to Guild members.
