Did you hear that PIEDMONT QUILTERS' GUILD now has a Facebook page? Please click on the link at the top of this page and request membership to our group. We would love to see what you are making! 
Nominating Committee:​ 
We do not have a Nominating Committee yet​.​ We need a committee formed by October per our bylaws. The Nominating Committee must consist of two Board Members and two non-Board Guild Members.
Please consider helping your Guild to find members to serve. We have one half of our Officer positions filled for next year. Unless the remaining positions are filled, our Guild is in danger of folding up. The few of us now in positions CANNOT continue to do double and triple duty. We need your help and support. Please consider co-chairing or sharing an office or committee with someone. Let a Board member know if you are willing to volunteer for a position and help keep the Guild going. The Guild has been around a long time and it would be very disheartening to see it not continue. Many of us have made lifelong friends,learned how to quilt, and had great volunteer experiences through the Guild. Be expecting calls from other members asking if you would be willing to serve in a position or on a committee for next year. In order to have a Guild, we MUST have everyone’s help in filling these positions.
Positions to be filled: President Elect, Secretary, Historian, Hospitality, Block of Month or Round Robin.
BOARD MEETING Thursday, September 24TH AT 7PM via Zoom * All board members will receive an email with a Zoom link
