Celebrate the Holidays at Carry-In Dinner

            The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild will celebrate the 2018 holiday season with our traditional Carry-In Dinner at the December meeting. Remember that this month’s meeting begins a half hour early at 6:30 p.m.  Enjoy a meal with friends and new acquaintances and build new friendships. Find a new member and make them feel welcome.

            Bring your favorite dish to share whether it is an appetizer, salad, main dish, vegetable or dessert. (Don't forget to mark you serving dish and utensils.) The guild will supply plates, silverware, napkins, coffee, water and lemonade. 

            Also, don't forget Show and Tell...this will be a great opportunity to include sharing some the projects you have created as gifts for friends and family.

            Remember to bring your Christmas Tree Blocks so you can take part in the drawing to win all the blocks entered. You need the set of two blocks to be in the drawing. You may sew additional sets of blocks to get your name in an additional time. However, no matter how many blocks you make, you can only enter the drawing a maximum of two times. Instructions for the Christmas Tree Block can be printed form the link below.

An Ohio Quilt Guild for Quilters and Fabric Artists in Dayton and Southwest Ohio

Miami Valley Quilters' Guild

          The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild is more than just a club, we are a diverse group with more than 250 members from all areas of interest and all quilting skill levels. Members include quilters, collectors of quilts, quilting teachers, designers and those simply interested in the art and craft of quilting. Our members come from throughout the Miami Valley Region of Southwest Ohio – the Dayton/Springfield Metro area including suburbs and communities such as Huber Heights, Englewood, Tipp City, Vandalia, Kettering, Oakwood, Beavercreek, Xenia, Fairborn, and Yellow Springs in Montgomery, Clark, Greene, and Preble counties and beyond. Our members have varied interests: traditional quilts and fabric art - hand piecing and machine work - long-arm machine quilting, home machine quilting and, of course, hand quilting. 

           As do other quilt guilds, clubs, and groups in Ohio, the Miami Valley Quilters' Guild  provides quilters with education and instruction through classes and workshops; inspiration and growth through meetings featuring accomplished quilters, quilt designers, and quilting teachers; fellowship and support through meetings, retreats, shows, programs, our newsletter, and our website; and encouragement and recognition  through quilt shows, show-and-tell sessions, challenges, charitable activities, and other events. We join other Ohio quilt guilds in promoting the history and tradition of quilting and embrace all quilting techniques, styles, and methods. 

         The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild proudly presents recent examples of quilting by its members in a biennial quilt show.  One of the best quilt shows in Ohio, the show is held in May even-numbered years at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia. 

          We meet at 7:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month at the Fairborn Senior Center, 325 North Third Street, Fairborn, Ohio.  Annual dues (January - December) of $20 includes attendance at meetings, access to our monthly newsletter, electronic services through our website and e-mail lists, reduced fees for classes and workshops, library privileges, eligibility for our annual retreat, exhibiting your quilts in our biennial membership shows, and much more, particularly the fellowship of fellow quilters. Visitors are welcome to attend meetings.  There is a $10.00 fee for non-members at programs featuring professional speakers.
