No Thursday meeting...instead we are having a picnic!
SATURDAY August 14 - 11am to 3pm:
Our picnic will be in the shelter at Kathleen Clay Edwards Library (1420 Price Park Drive, Greensboro). We will eat at 12noon. Bring a covered dish to share. (Don't forget your serving utensils!) The guild will provide drinks and plates/napkins/utensils.
Please bring something you made during COVID for a special Show & Tell! Bring two or three items if you can! Just in case we bring books or fabric to sell you might want to bring cash. We'll also have raffle tickets for the Scott Murkin quilt. And Jeanne will bring some Community Outreach kits and will accept your completed donation quilts.
We have the shelter for the whole day so feel free to bring something to work on and spend the afternoon quilting with friends.Our next meeting is:
FIREFLIES & OTHER NIGHT LIGHTS

For this special quilt raffle we will be selling a limited number of tickets. Only 150 tickets will be sold! When all tickets are sold we will draw for a winner. The ticket price is $5 each.
More information and a photo of our raffle quilt can be found on the "Raffle Quilt" page (click on the tab above).
*** Please remember that the money raised from the sale of these tickets is the way we pay for our speakers, meeting space rental, Community Outreach supplies, etc.

"DOSE OF GOOD" from WFDD on May 24, 2021
"Quilters love to quilt. We make bed quilts, throws, baby quilts, table runners, wall hangings, placemats and more. We make them for family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. When we’ve made something for everyone we know we make things for people we don’t know. The members of the Piedmont Quilters’ Guild in Greensboro NC have been making and donating quilts since 1980! We recently donated 22 quilts to Freedom House, a substance abuse recovery center for mothers and their children. They were so happy to receive this donation. The quilts will keep the mothers and children warm through the winter. We have already started on more quilts and look forward to donating again soon!"
