Ormond Beach, Florida

These mini groups have been setup to help satisfy the objectives of our organization and promote skills related to the art of quilting.

Please read the group description to see if attendance is open to the public.

Mother Hen Group

Our mentoring Mother Hen group continues to be held on the second Thursday of each month at the Ormond Beach Library. Here is an opportunity to get some help if your skills are rusty or if you are new to quilting. You can pass along some tips or techniques to other quilters and perhaps pick up something new yourself. In addition to our members, we welcome quilters from the community or non-quilters who would like to get started. We meet at the library at 9:30 a.m. for about two to two and a half hours in Room 4. Even if you don’t need help, come join us for a "Sit and Sew" at that time. Put aside your “must do” list and spend a couple of hours of social quilting—you’ll be able to make some progress on a project while enjoying friendly conversation. There is plenty of room around the tables. We’d love to see you!

Our upcoming gatherings will be on Thursday, November 8, and December 13, 2018 (unless advised otherwise). Please join us—either every month or for the occasional session. It’s a nice opportunity to stitch together and meet potential members. For more information, contact Susan Sauro at pelicanpatrol@mindspring.com.

Sit 'n' Sew Group

The next RFQG Sit ‘n’ Sew will be held on Wednesday, November 7, 2018, from 1 pm to 5 pm, at the Aberdeen Club House, 50 Allwood Green Boulevard, Ormond Beach, Florida. Future gatherings will be held on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 and January 2, 2019. This group is for RFQG members who would like a time to just sew together, to work on charity projects for the guild, or to work on their own projects. Members are encouraged to bring their machines and extension cords, and their projects. An ironing board and tables are provided. This is a chance to get some work done and enjoy visiting. Aberdeen is a gated community - tell them you are there for the new sewing group. They will probably ask for your name. For information contact Sandi Makowski at sandimakowski@mac.com.
