Arizona Quilters Guild
Committed to educating the public and our members about the place quilts hold in our lives, hearts, and history.
Daisy Mountain Quilters
Anthem Civic Building Room 3 or 4
The Daisy Mountain Quilters were organized around 2000. In April of 2005 they became part of the Arizona Quilters Guild. Originally started as a common interest group among ladies who like to make quilts, the members still inspire, encourage and share the love of quilting with anyone in our community who would like to learn more about our art. In April of 2020, we had 52 members on our rolls and every meeting seems to bring one or two new people into our fold. We meet on the first Friday of the month from 1 – 4 p.m. in a room at the Anthem Civic Center, except for June and July. Our typical meeting has a sewing related presentation, sometimes a contracted presenter for outside the group, Show and Tell and fun games. We also meet for two charity sew days: the second Monday of the month and the fourth Tuesday. These workdays are available from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. In August we get together for a lunch at a restaurant and prepare to gear up for our next season. At our November meeting we hold a Chinese Auction where we sell raffle tickets for donated items. This is our major fundraiser to purchase batting, fabric and thread for making our charity quilts. We also have a Christmas luncheon and gift exchange at our regular meeting time in December.
Our primary charity is Veterans First, a service organization for underserved female veterans. We deliver comfort quilts, baby bibs, burp cloths and other items on a regular basis. We also keep a supply of charity quilts on hand in case a need arises in our community. Every meeting we collect 5 to 25 charity quilts for distribution.
Our Chapter is lead by a team consisting of a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer with committee chairs for membership, charity quilts, programs, communication, and sunshine. Our dues are $12 per year.
