We Welcome Visitors! Come Meet Us Before You Join
We meet on the 2nd Monday of the month at Good Samaritan Lutheran Church at 20850 Langley Rd in Lexington Park MD. We start to gather at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.
A typical meeting includes:
Programs include guest speakers about an aspect of quilting, trunk shows of beautiful quilts, parties, and quilting demonstrations.
Show & Tell
Bring your latest creation, project or quilt story to share and get the praise you deserve. Viewing others’ handiwork will inspire you and offer an opportunity to learn from others.
Block of the Month
Block of the Month patterns are handed out in the monthly meeting and are also included in the newsletter. These patterns give you an opportunity to sharpen your skills. When you make the block of the month (or several blocks) you are entered in the drawing for that month's blocks. The lucky winner takes home all the blocks! Possibly enough for an entire quilt top!
There are monthly door prize drawings, name tag drawing – wear your name tag for an addition chance to win a prize, Also we have a “Monthly Mini” raffle – a member will donate a small, quilted item that is raffled off each meeting.
