In addition to the regular schedule of programs and workshops, PSQG provides a number of regularly scheduled activities for members. Brief information about each is listed below. Specific information about each event will be posted when it is available.
Annual Membership Picnic/Potluck:
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Future Quilters Wanted!
PSQG hosts an inside picnic event in July of each year. For July 2016, the guild will have a half day workshop and an ice cream social followed by a speaker. The guild will provide ice cream and cake. The evening social and speaker are events that we encourage everyone to bring a child or young student to help inspire them to become the next generation of quilters.
RETREAT SUMMER 2017
Come join us at Quilt City USA – Hamilton Missouri – July 16-19. We will have 2 full days of sewing -and more important- shopping. The last opportunity to sign up is Jan 24th so bring your registration form and your checkbook to the guild meeting.
Held every other year (in the years alternating with our biennial quilt show), this event is held Monday through Wednesday at a retreat center. Participants work on their own projects, take field trips to local quilt shops, etc.
Annual Winter/ Spring Retreat:
Held annually, most often in March, this event encompasses a long weekend.
Annual Spring Banquet:
Our next Spring Banquet will be Monday, May 22, 2017. The guest speaker will be Carrie Nelson aka Miss Rosie. The banquet is a time of the year that the Evening Chapter and the Morning Chapter gather together to enjoy each other’s company and it is our final meeting for the guild’s year.
These ad hoc events have included “Black Friday” open sewing afternoons on the Friday after Thanksgiving, and occasional Tuesday afternoon sew-ins on Guild meeting days when no afternoon workshops are scheduled.
