Hey ya'll! The guild is growing like wildfire and we are spread out all over the metroplex. We are trying to put together some Friendship Groups in order to make it a little easier to connect with people a little closer to home and also as a way to "connect" with each other. The way it works is this: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and mention that you'd like to join a Friendship Group. State what city you live in (or near), a way to contact you (email, phone, smoke signals, etc) and whether or not daytime or evening get togethers work best for you. We will "assemble" everyone interested into local groups. The group can then pick a time and place and begin to meet up for little "stitch-ins". When I have belonged to these in the past, we usually met once or twice a month at someones house and talked, sewed, ate, whatever. It is just a fun way to spread out the fun between guild meetings and to make new friends who like to spend time doing what we all love to do! The board members will be happy to help get these groups going in whatever way we can. So, just shoot an email to the above address and we'll get you hooked up with a new group of quilty buddies!
