The Queens Quilters Guild has started meeting in person again.
We are a group of enthusiastic sewers and quilters who meet for the day at the Brookyn Community Hall twice a month, working on our own projects and participating in workshops provided by our members and invited guests.
The meetings provide a great opportunity to socialize while doing what we love. We make quilts that we donate to local organizations such as nursing homes, group homes, veterans and the palliative care unit, to name a few.
We also make pillowcases for the Smiles for Ryan project at the IWK, aprons for school craft classes and Christmas placemats for the Meals on Wheels program. We also host an annual three-day quilting retreat for members.
We are hoping that local quilters on the South Shore might be interested in joining our group. We are holding an open house on Oct. 13 at the hall from 10:30 a.m. to noon. We will have samples of our work on display and members will be available to answer questions. For all of our protection, masks are required.
