Member Sponsored Activitiesadmin2023-07-25T16:44:16-04:00
We ask guild members to help sponsor some fun and educational activities throughout the year.
Our member activities represent a great opportunity to share our knowledge and talents with others while getting to know one another better.
If you would like to help with or offer a member sponsored activity, let us know now!
Rather than engage a professional speaker, we tap into the expertise within our own Guild and solicit members to put together a program at some of our monthly meetings. Past offerings have included member speakers, trunk shows, demonstrations, fabric swaps, fun and games, meet-n-greet, raffles, auctions, bazaars, rummage sales ….
If you have an activity you’d like to offer, please contact us.
We at Northern Star are a creative bunch. Different talents and techniques abound. Every year that creativity is put to the test with a new Quilt Challenge offered to members. Get in on the fun !
Check out this year’s Challenge HERE and if you are interested in running next year’s Challenge, be sure to contact us.
Every year around the end of February, guild members get together for a fun and productive Saturday. Some members share their talents teaching classes on various techniques and projects. Sign up for a class or “Sit and Sew” on your own project. Lunch is provided by our Hospitality team. This is a a wonderful opportunity to mingle with fellow members in a smaller social setting.
If you’d like to coordinate one of our annual Super Saturdays or offer a class at one, please contact us.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
Our SIGs are open to all members. Have a special interest? Check out our current groups or maybe start a new one!
Our SIGs come and go based on size and member interest so contact us for further details.

For Art Lovers
Long Arm Quilting
Special 1-2 hour Zoom tutorials where members can share techniques or join in short sewing projects are always a big hit. Offer some new technique you just learned or share a skill such as fabric painting, borders, binding, machine and hand applique, hand embroidery ….
If you’d like to offer a pop-up, please contact us! We can provide Zoom assistance as needed.
Currently no trips are in the offing.
If you are interested in organizing a quilt related trip for guild members, please contact us with your ideas.
