The Daisy Mountain Quilters were organized around 2000. In April of 2005 we 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 January of 2023, we had 61 members on our roster and every meeting seems to bring one or two new people into our fold. Our General Meeting is on the first Friday of the month from 1pm to 4pm at the Anthem Civic Building. Our typical meeting has a sewing-related presentation, sometimes a contracted presenter from outside the group, Show and Tell and fun games. We also meet for two Charity Sew Days each month: the second Monday and the fourth Tuesday of the month. These Sew Days are also held at the Anthem Civic Building from 9am to 3pm. They give us an opportunity to quilt together, enhance our skills, and learn new projects. We don’t have any meetings in June and July but in August we get together for lunch at a restaurant for fellowship and prepare to gear up for our next season. In October we participate in Anthem’s AutumnFest. This is a multi-vendor carnival event put on for our community with lots to do, eat, and play. We set up a booth and sell our quilting and sewing items. This is our major fundraiser that enables us to purchase batting, fabric, and thread for making charity quilts. We also have a Christmas luncheon and gift exchange at our regularmeeting 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. The Phoenix Humane Society has also been a recipient of our Dog Beds made from fabric scraps. We 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 led 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 $15 per year.
