Arizona Quilters Guild
Committed to educating the public and our members about the place quilts hold in our lives, hearts, and history.
Park Meadow Elementary School
Sundown Quilters is a friendly, caring and welcoming group of quilters that use their time and talent to create beautiful, useful items for those in need within our community and who also provide support and encouragement to each other. Our group is just under 30 members. We meet on the fourth Thursday of the month at Park Meadow Elementary School just south of the Loop 101 at 35th Avenue from 4 pm to 9 pm with the Chapter meeting starting at 6:30.
Our space is available to us at 4 pm . Bring a project to work on, bring your dinner, or just come to sit and chat before the meeting starts at 6:30. The meeting format begins with a welcome to visitors and new members, financial report, member news, AQG news, status of our charity efforts, new business, suggestions and ideas, Block of the Month (BOM) demo and drawing, fat quarter drawing and door prizes. We also have a Un-Finished-Objective (UFO) Challenge and we participate in the Group Challenge for the annual AQG quilt show. Each meeting ends with the much anticipated Show and Tell leaving everyone so inspired. In addition, every quarter we offer an opportunity to sew together (in lieu of the regular meeting format). We are hoping to include speakers/teachers at our meeting in the near future.
We make quilts for Fire Station #50; pillow cases for Ryan's Case for Smiles; quilts, pillowcases, tote bags, Christmas stockings and other items to Devereaux Arizona. Last year we donated 120 quilts, 112 pillowcases, 80 tote bags and 543 Christmas stockings. This year we hope to increase those numbers.
Sundown Quilters has four officer positions. Elections are held every May for Chapter Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Membership. In addition, these officers and three volunteers form a Planning Committee that meets prior to the Chapter meeting to discuss the content of the upcoming meeting. Each member of the Planning Committee leads a Chapter meeting twice a year with the feedback and assistance of the rest of the committee. The annual dues is $15.
Please let us know if you are interested in our Chapter and would like more information. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and the AQG Membership Director will forward your request to the Chapter Chair.
