What’s Happening with Agavé Quilters Guild this Summer?

Our guild will not meet in July or August, but that doesn’t mean we’re not busy! Several of the guild’s Friendship/Sewcialites groups are continuing to meet over the summer months, and many members are participating in the UFO challenge. We are to work on unfinished projects that we shared at the May meeting and bring these back no later than the November meeting in a different or completed state for which points will be awarded. Whoever receives the most points from their projects will receive a gift at our holiday luncheon in December!

The Agavé Quilters Guild will be having a boutique on Nov. 19, and all members are encouraged to create items for sale. We have had demo days and open sew days for members to create placemats, microwaveable bowl covers, table toppers, zip bags, etc. Our first Boutique Demo Day was May 18, and several more are planned in the coming weeks. Our community service group will also be there to provide charity quilt packets to those wishing to complete one over the summer.

Agavé Quilters Guild is open to new members of all skill levels. General meetings are held September through May on the first Wednesday of each month at 1 p.m., in the Navajo Room at Sun Lakes Country Club, 25601 E. Sun Lakes Blvd N., in Sun Lakes. Each meeting features a brief business update from the board members, a guest speaker, and a “show and tell” session allowing members to share their projects with the group.

For further information, please contact President Betty Bogaard at [email protected] or Dennie Sullivan, membership chair, at [email protected]. We look forward to welcoming you to our Agavé Quilters Guild, the original Sun Lakes Quilt Guild since 1995!
