MEMBERS: The March meeting is 100% virtual/online.
Due to restrictions that were in place when planning the March meeting, the Guild is unable to host an in-person meeting in March. Members will receive email(s) with meeting information. We are planning for an in-person meeting in April.

We meet the first Tuesday of each month at 1 p.m. an 7 p.m. The Sept. - Dec. meeting location is at the American Legion, Post 26, 702 W, 35th St., Davenport, IA.

An Americanism dating from 1910-1915, a doohickey is a gadget; a dingus; a thingumabob; a nifty quilting tool that a quilter may want, has never heard of, or is too expensive to purchase.
Each month a new Doohickey is offered to our membership. It may be a new “cool” tool or it may be something tried and true; expensive or not so much.
Tickets are $1.00 and monthly prizes are determined by the number of tickets sold the previous month. The winning ticket will be drawn at the end of the evening meeting.
What is Block to Raffle? It is a way to have a chance at having enough blocks to make a quilt that you only have to sew a couple blocks. There are usually 4-5 done each year.
The Block to Raffle Chair (BTRC. Refer to Newsletter for current chairperson) chooses a block. It may be a typical pieced block, something seasonal, paper pieced, or maybe a little applique. She then chooses a background fabric or sometimes a specific fabric to include in the design. Kits are created with enough fabric to make 1-2 blocks.
The kits may be purchased for $1 each. That's quite a deal, folks!
Minutes are taken at each general (member) meeting and may be downloaded/viewed in the Minutes section below.
