The Hospitality Table provides sustenance to hungry quilters and a relaxing place to gather and chat with friends.

Monthly refreshments are provided by members according to a schedule that is setup at the beginning of the Guild year but feel free to bring a snack even if it isn’t your designated month!  Everyone who brings a treat will receive a ticket to the monthly raffle.

Hot water for coffee and tea will be provided. Please bring a mug or travel cup and your own water bottle to help reduce waste.

Here are some food suggestions (remember, finger foods rule!):

  • Cookies, brownies, mini-cupcakes
  • Fresh fruit in easy, bite-sized pieces
  • Trail mix, spiced nuts, peanuts, pretzels
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Veggie platter and dip

Hospitality Raffle

At most meetings, the Hospitality Team hosts a raffle table.  You can purchase tickets to win a variety of quilt-related supplies and fabrics.  This is a fun way to try a fabric or material you might otherwise not purchase.  Winners are generally announced just prior to the main program.

June Salad Supper

The June meeting brings the spectacular Salad Supper.  This dinner provides a wonderful opportunity to socialize with Guild friends and bring our formal activities to a close for the summer.  Each member is requested to arrive by 6 pm with a salad to serve 6 – 8 people (please include ingredient list).  Usual beverages available.  Dessert is provided by the guild.

Annual Food Drive

During one of our meetings, we generally run a Food Drive for the local food pantries.
