Scrappy Ladies Quilt Guild
We are a nonprofit organization, registered with the State of Colorado. We host an annual Quilt Show in July, at which we draw for the winner of our Raffle Quilt. Proceeds of our raffle are dedicated to library books, educational classes for our members, the purchase of materials to make our raffle quilts and quilts to be donated to various charities, Guild programs, and a donation in exchange for our meeting room. Beyond fellowship, the featured purpose of our annual retreat is to preserve the tradition, culture and history of quilting, and to promote the knowledge and appreciation of all aspects of quilting.
Quilters in Huerfano and Pueblo Counties, Colorado
Our Guild was established in 1996 as a community for people who support the importance of Quilts In Our Lives - past, present and future.
We meet on the second Monday of each month, at the Colorado City Recreation Center, beginning at 10:00a. Following a short business meeting, we enjoy the sharing by our members of both completed efforts and projects in process; we finish with a guest speaker or a program.
Membership is open to anyone who is interested in quilts and quilting. Guests are welcome (no fee)!
Some of our members meet, informally, at the Colorado City Rec Center on the first, fourth and fifth Mondays, 9:00-11:30a. And some of our members also meet for a Sit 'n' Sew on the third Thursday of the month, at the Navajo Water Board bldg, 9:00a-3:00p.
We provide quilts in support of several local organizations, notably AADA (Advocates Against Domestic Assault) which is a member of the Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence; BB3 (or Bright by Three, formerly Bright Beginnings) offers parents the foundation to provide their children ages 0-3 a healthy start in life; the Dialysis Center at the Veterans Community Living Center in Walsenburg; the Sangre de Cristo Hospice, and the Sangre de Cristo Center for Youth in Walsenburg.
