We are expecting snow and cold temperatures on Monday, February 18. The decision has been made to cancel our meeting for this month! As it is the President’s Day holiday, the schools are also closed. We did consider postponing the meeting by one week; however, the church is not available on Monday, February 25.
Stay warm and safe, and we look forward to seeing you on March 18 - we will be preparing kits for the community to finish during the Quilt Show!
The Pride City Quilt Guild was established on September 16, 1985, to bring together a community of quilters, to provide a forum in which to share their experiences, and exchange ideas and techniques. Many of our members belong to more than one guild; see the Resources page for information on other guilds in our area.
We meet monthly on the third Monday at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 10 University Circle in Pueblo, CO. Registration opens at 9:00a with refreshments available about 9:15a, and the meeting begins at 9:30a. Following our business meeting we have our program. After a short break we share our latest projects. Guests are always welcome; guest fee is $3.
The Guild offers quilts to several organizations, notably the Nurse-Family Partnership, YWCA of Pueblo, and Hospice, We have provided quilts for the Linus Project and to ACOVA (A Community Organization for Victim Assistance), and monthly nearly a dozen presentation cases are mailed to the state QOV chairman for use with Quilts of Valor.
Annually we sponsor the Southern Colorado Regional Quilt Show in April. The Show is held at the El Pueblo History Museum in downtown Pueblo and is a free event, showcasing over 100 quilts from quilters throughout the region.
PCQG goes to the Colorado State Fair! We host a booth in the Creative Arts building in which we display a few of the quilts made for charity during the past year, and have a quilting frame set up at which some of our members will hand quilt during Fair hours.
Membership in our Guild is $25, and runs on the calendar year. Fifteen members are asked to bring treats each month; each of us have a turn two or three times per year. Also, we put a quarter in the basket at break time each month to defray the cost of coffee and kitchen supplies.
