About Us…

Common Threads was started over 35 years ago by 15 founding members. We currently have over 45 members and are actively seeking new members to join us for fellowship, friendship, and to learn and hone quilting skills.

Our purpose is to “promote fellowship while increasing and encouraging the interest and knowledge of our members in all aspects of the art of quilting.” You’re encouraged to participate in our “Block of the Month” and the yearly “Guild Quilt Challenge” in a fun and engaging environment.

Highlights of membership include a Triennial Quilt Show, an opportunity to learn from seasoned guild members and speakers, and you’ve definitely found a place where you can feel free to ask questions, get answers, and improve your quilting skills.

As a Common Threads guild member, we Learn • we Teach • we Give Back.

Thanks for stopping by! We look forward to seeing you at a meeting soon.
