Of course you can! We have members from the Central Florida area including Orlando, Maitland, Lake Mary, Winter Springs, Deland, etc. as well as members from out of state.

Where and when do you meet?
We typically meet the first Wednesday of the month at The Sewing Studio in Maitland from 10am-12pm.   We understand that weekdays are difficult for some members, so we also offer monthly Sew Days on a Sunday in Oviedo and monthly Sew Days on a Monday at the Maitland Public Library.

Do I have to participate in all the Community Outreach projects?
Details of our current Community Outreach projects are on the blog. While we pride ourselves on the contributions we make as a Guild to our community, participation is completely voluntary.  We understand that some members have more quilting time than others, and that we each contribute to the community and important causes in our own way.
