GQCCC offers several opportunities for members to gather in small groups to quilt and build friendships. Currently there are groups that meet in a space rented by the guild, known as “The Farmhouse” (see more details below), “virtually” over Zoom, or a hybrid of the two.
This is a “members only” classroom where small groups meet to quilt and share friendship. The guild library is housed here, containing over 1,200 books for members to check out (click here for library page). The classroom also has tables for members to baste their quilts. In the past, the guild’s annual opportunity quilt was assembled and hand quilted there.
The Farmhouse is currently limited to a maximum of nine people — seven sewers with machines and two hand sewers or visitors. Please contact the host of the small group you wish to attend prior to going to the Farmhouse. You also must bring your own tools. The only items currently available for community use are the ironing board, two irons, cutting table, and mats. The water cooler is also available..
Please review all the rules and social distancing protocols before going to the Farmhouse. The Farm Bureau is requiring everyone to sign in and sanitize their hands before entering the building. A separate sign-in is required for the guild classroom.
Farmhouse Manager: Debbie Flanders
