Our Projects & Events
Guild Charity Projects - monthly (see Calendar)
One of the most central functions of our Guild is using our talents to serve others. Our charity activities are many and open to all our members. You don't have to be an expert quilter to help! The main venue for our charity sewing are our monthly "sew-ins" at Stitch Off Seventh Sewing Studio at 601 Nikles Drive in Bozeman. These "sew-ins" are free to members who come to help. If you don't have a charity project of your own you are working on, we have some you can help with! Please see the Calendar for scheduled days. Also, please contact our Charity Chair, Linda Fisher at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or questions.
