Guild of quilters in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest

We are a guild of quilters in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. We came together as a formal group in May of 2003, and are now beginning our fifth year. We meet (temporarily) at the Breed Town Hall (check the top of EVENTS page for directions), south of Mountain, Wisconsin. We have a limit of 75 members.

Each Month:

Regular meetings 3rd Monday at 7:00 p.m .
Sewing Session 1st Monday at 3:30 p.m.
Newsletter posted ten days prior to regular meeting
Slideshow added within week after meetings & special activities

Winter Meeting Cancellation Information: We never know what “Old Man Winter” will send our way! If the weather is nasty, and you’re not sure if a meeting or sewing session will be held, you may call an officer to find out. For the sewing session a decision will be made by 2:00pm , and for a regular meeting by 5:00pm. You may call LaurieS 7l5-276-6l43, DeannaT 920-842-2057, or DebB 715-276-7085 [Angela is the fourth officer, but since Angela works during daytime hours, you will not find her at home.] If conditions are too bad for you to venture out, then there is no need to call anyone.

Special activities are scheduled throughout the year. Feel free to browse our website. Watch for a second quilt show to be held on Saturday, October 11, 2008. This is not a juried show; we prefer to display only the quilts of our members. The MEMBERS area is restricted to current members of our guild.

For the fourth year, we are displaying a “car” in the Christmas Train in Mountain. This is part of a promotion by the Mountain Area Business Association during the Christmas season, and is lighted at night.. View the slideshow on MABA’s website.

President’s Challenge: Laurie Schonenbeck issued a challenge to members of the guild in December of 2006. Prior to that, the guild met Deanna Tachick’s challenge in 2005-2006. During September, 2005, members of our guild created quilts (over 50) and shipped them to serveral places to be distributed to those persons displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

Laurie’s President’s Challenge came to a close at the May meeting. A group photo was taken with all the quilts and their quilters. Then on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, our President’s Challenge quilts were displayed at Tabor Lutheran Church in Mountain, following the Memorial Day Cemetery Service that the VFW does every year. Look at the President’s Challenge page for an update on this project and to see more pictures of the quilts!
