Our group enjoys gathering to learn and share more about quilting with each other. We enjoy our time together in monthly meetings, sew-days and instructor led special events.
Our guild is active in supporting our community as well - visit our community service page to see some of the organizations we are currently supporting with our quilts and other projects.
The library is closed to the public indefinitely due to public health concerns so the SRQG will not meet until further notice.
During the lockdown due to COVID-19, members have made and donated over 900 masks as well as tube covers for chemo patients in the children's unit.
