The Guild's purpose is to further quilting excellence in Southwestern Montana, to promote friendship and a sense of community through the primary activity of needle arts, including but not limited to quilting, embroidery, knitting, crocheting, beading and tatting. The Guild shall be exclusively charitable and educational.
Our members are from all parts of the Gallatin Valley, and beyond! Bozeman, Belgrade, Manhattan, Livingston, Three Forks, Gallatin Gateway, West Yellowstone as well as other areas/states make up our "guild family". We welcome you and encourage you to look at our calendar and the many activities we do!
Gallatin Quilt Guild to have a booth at Garagarama on April 6!!
As our annual fund-raiser this year, rather than a Yard Sale in the summer, the Guild will have a mega-booth at the well-publicized Garagarama sale at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds on Saturday, April 6. We would love your help both in donating NEEDLE ARTS RELATED ITEMS ONLY, and of course in helping with the sale itself!! Please plan to attend and consider donations that you can make. Remember, we are a 501c3 organization, so any donated item qualifies as a charitable donation, and we can issue you a reciept as such.
Stay tuned for more details!
Special Presentation to Family Promise!
Mary Jo Lusin, a Guild member involved with Family Promise and Linda Fisher, Chair of the Guild Charity Committee, presented a signature quilt to the Director of Family Promise at our January meeting. Created by the Charity Committee members, it had labels which were signed by the folks who had participated in Family Promise the past year. It will be displayed at Family Promise headquarters! Thank you to all the members of the committee who worked on the various projects this last year.
The Guild also recieved special "thank you" notes from the participants of the fabric bags created for those participating in the "Mending in the Mountains" event for the Cancer Support Center. Those thank you notes are in the file below..click on the file name to open the pdf. Enjoy, and consider being a part of this committee! We meet every third Wednesday of the month at Stitch Off Seventh! Hope to see you there!
