Faithful Circle Quilters are currently meeting via Zoom due to the coronavirus, rather than meeting in person.
We meet twice a week with a morning (Thursday 11 AM) and an evening (Monday 7 PM) meeting. If you are a non-member and would like to be included in the invitation to those meetings, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please specify whether you would like to be invited to the morning meeting, the evening meeting, or both. Zoom invitation e-mails are sent out a day or two before each meeting as a reminder.
Meetings consist of general announcements, sharing of news and information, show and tell. Meetings also have varied programmatic content such as slideshow of special quilts, sharing of interesting video, demos, a variety of planned activities and/or breakout groups for general chit-chat.
Periodically we also have a virtual lecture from a variety of national and internationally known teachers and speakers. Classes have continued during the pandemic in virtual format. Programs such as block exchanges, block of the month for charity, round robin, and other quilt challenges have continued despite the pandemic.
The group has remained very active in our support of various community organizations, with sewing of masks, caps, and a record number of charity quilts.
You are welcome to join our meetings as a visitor. Settle into a comfortable place in your home with your online device, along with some hand sewing or knitting, or just check us out and join the chit-chat.
When we meet again in person there are other activities the group organizes. These include potluck luncheons and dinners, a Spring and Fall retreat, occasional Saturday Sew-Ins, and a biennial Quilt Show.
