LEADERSHIP

Who serves on the executive board?
You can find the list of current officers here.

I’m interested in becoming an officer.
Every year around March or April we begin looking for candidates to fill any of the Board positions that will be vacated the end of June. If you are interested is any position you can talk to the person currently holding that position to find out more of what the position entails, investigate the Bylaws that also detail what is involved.  Then let a Board member or the President know that you would like to fill that position.

What are the various guild committees?
You can find the list of current committees and chairs here.

I’m interested in volunteering or chairing a committee.
Hooray, we are glad that you are interested in helping out. Probably the best thing to do is to talk to the current committee chair or the President.

MEMBERSHIP

How do I join?
You can join online, by mail or at any of our monthly general meetings at the Centre Concord.

What are new member get-togethers?
New member get-togethers happen once a year to acquaint new members with the Farmhouse [our room at the Farm Bureau Building at 5554 Clayton Road in Concord. They normally happen within a few months after our Quilt Show in April.

We maintain a library there including books, quilting stencils and some patterns. It is here that many small groups meet to quilt. Some groups are currently full but there are others open to new members.  A list of small groups can be found at this page

We hold mostly monthly workshops here taught by guild members that can be signed up for a nominal fee on the third Saturday of the month.

How can I become a more active member? Attend meetings, sign up for workshops, make a Block of the Month, pick up and make a kit from Patriotic Quilts group or Quilts to Share group, make a challenge quilt, help out at the Quilt Show, join the Board or a committee.
