About the PBCQG:

Do you like to work on projectAprils in your own home? We have directions available for our Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County Welcome Home quilts, and for Project Linus quilts. We also have directions posted for a great name badge holder you can make for your name tag, the PBCQG logo patch, and pin. Or, you can sew interesting items for the Boutique committee as they dream up new items to offer in the Boutique at our Guild meetings or at our shows.

Do you prefer to work in a group? We gather after meetings several times a year for community outreach “sew-ins” where you can cut, press, sort, sew, bind, or quilt projects for veterans, Habitat for Humanity partner families, and other Palm Beach County community services. Additionally, many members gather in small groups around town to work together on community projects. See the list in each month’s newsletter.

Do you like to help children learn about quilt-making? We love helping children (and their parents) learn about and appreciate quilt-making. Our largest project is our Kids’ Corner throughout the seventeen days of the South Florida Fair each year. We have offered different activities over the last 30 years, but all of them involve a way for children – even the young ones – to make something related to quilt-making. Currently, the children use crayons to draw designs on light-colored fabric that we heat-set and make into small Project Linus quilts – often right there at the Fair. Children and parents often stop by later the same day to see the quilt that their block is in. These quilts are distributed to community-based organizations throughout Palm Beach County – many are carried on fire trucks and used to comfort children in crisis situations. The Fair lasts for seventeen days each January and we always need members (and their friends and family) to help with Kid’s Corner and with other tasks such as demonstrating hand-quilting, machine-quilting, and offering opportunities to win the special theme quilt available that year. Get free admission the day you work!

Sign up to work a shift of your choosing at any Fall Guild meeting or by contacting Nancy Ialacci or Donna Jesse. We especially need volunteers to work the evening shifts – that way, you can enjoy the Fair during the less-crowded daytime, have dinner, and then work the booth from 6-10 pm

Another way we help children learn about quilt-making is to conduct special programs, such as the quilt-making class at the Fair’s summer camp in Yesteryear Village. Children, 8-12 learn what life was like in “the old days” and they learn basic sewing and quilting skills.

Do you like to learn new skills? Most Guild meetings include a program, which teaches a quilt-making skill or concept. During the year, we have several workshops with talented local, regional, and national instructors on tradition, modern, and art quilt-making. See the newsletter for the latest information on programs and workshops.

Do you enjoy sharing your quilt-making knowledge with others? Let the Guild vice president or workshop chair know that you are interested in teaching a short program or a long workshop.

Would you like working with our wonderful library of quilt-making books and videos? You can help the library committee catalog new acquisitions, lend and receive the books and videos, or help members find ones related to their quilt-making interests.

Would you enjoy helping with our annual challenge, or the construction of our annual Fair and “opportunity” quilts? Contact the committee chairs and let them know.

How about assembling membership packets? Preparing Birthday Basket fat-quarters? Holding quilts up for display during Show and Tell? Just contact the committee chair – they would love, love, love your help!

And, there is always a lot to do before each meeting. If you find joining a new group a bit awkward, pitching in and working along side someone is an easy way to break the ice. Sign up to be the “Gate Greeter,” from 9:15 – 10 am, and provide wagons for members and guests to use for their heavy items. This way, you get to meet everyone coming into the meeting. Just sign up on the clip-board circulated during each meeting. Join us in the Bink Museum at 8:30 am any meeting day and help set up the tables and chairs and be part of the camaraderie that forms as we work together. Join Us!
