llQuilters of Lakeland, Inc.
We meet on the third Thursday of the month at First Presbyterian Church, 175 Lake Hollingsworth, lakeland, FL. 6:00 social time, 6:30 meeting
The guild is a non-profit organization and was originally started in May of 1995. The ladies who started the guild wanted a place where they could come to be with friends and to have a great time while doing something they loved. Now we have grown to over 100 members with special interest groups like our Featherweight Circle and Handwork Circle, both which meet monthly in addition to our monthly guild meeting
Together they created a guild where people of many shapes and colors get together to do charity work as well as things for themselves.
What We Do
As a guild, we create pieces for Florida Baptist Children’s Home, Quilts for Project Linus, pillow cases for ConKerr Cancer, wish pillows for Give Kids the World, lap quilts for those in nursing homes and the VA hospital, memory bears for Vitas, and so much more.
At our meetings, we enjoy listening to guest speakers talk about their style of quilting, sewing, and embellishing! Some guest speakers offer classes for the ladies to partake in. Previous speakers include Cindy Oravecz, Lanette Edens, Sarah Ann Smith, Gail Garber, Mary Lou Weidman, and so many more. Our guild also holds the a biannual quilt show complete with gift basket raffles, a Boutique, and ribbons! We also have classes with national teachers as well as workshops and bus trips to quilt shops.
