The Cornerstone Quilters Guild meets on the third Sunday of each month, September through May, from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. at the Charlton Baptist Church.  Members are encouraged to arrive after 1:00 p.m. to visit with members and to stop by various activity and event tables in the foyer before the meeting:

  • Membership Table:  Sign in and pick up your raffle ticket; bring your name tag and get a second raffle ticket!  Pick up flyers of upcoming quilt shows and events.

  • Hospitality Table:  If you’re a new member, find a friendly face who will help you to navigate all the guild activities and pick up your orientation packet.  If you’re a current member, volunteer to assist in greeting or showing visitors and new members around the meetings.

  • Workshop Table:  View samples of upcoming workshop projects and register for these workshops.  The cost is only $10 for most workshops; check out our Guild Workshop tab on this site.

  • Dollar Table:  Get some great bargains – gently used magazines, books, patterns, notions, and more – for just a dollar!  To continue to keep this table stocked, please consider donating “quilt” related items, cotton quilting fabric, magazines in bundles of 5, notions, books & patterns (not too ancient-new millennium please), kits, etc.

  • Outreach Table:  Pick up a charity quilt top kit or drop off a quilt top or pillowcase.

 

“Friendly Face Lift” offered by our Hospitality Committee and YOU!

Cornerstone Quilters has become a very active, well-established Guild. Our meetings are filled with opportunities to connect with friends and to join our friends in volunteer activities, workshops, and trips.  The lobby of Charlton Baptist Church is a beehive of activity as we scramble to accomplish everything before our meeting begins.

For a visitor or new member, passing through the lobby to the meeting is confusing and, sometimes intimidating.

Our goal is for Cornerstone Quilters to be known as the friendliest, most welcoming quilt guild around.  Every member is a part of the Welcome Committee!  Reach out – strive to share a friendly greeting with those you do not know.  Be aware of the special name tags of guests and new members.  Help them feel welcome. 

The Hospitality Committee needs Meeting Buddies!  This can be a one meeting commitment to be available to assist a new member or guest.  Explain the sign-in tables, introduce your “new friend” to others, and sit with him/her through the meeting.  Help them feel connected so they will become active participants in the Guild.

At the beginning of each meeting, let the Hospitality Committee know you will be available to help for that day. We only need a few each meeting.  It’s a great way to get involved and to help out a new member or guest.
