Sit-n-Stitch Groups

Mar2012 002A “Sit-n-Stitch” is a group of members who meet weekly, bi-weekly, or 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. If you are interested, please call Marsha Walper. For contact phone numbers, please consult the Quilter’s Unlimited Directory available to Guild members.
