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 so we can reduce paper waste.

Here are some food suggestions to consider:

  • Fresh fruit in easy, bite-sized pieces
  • Trail mix, spiced nuts, peanuts, pretzels
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Veggie platter and dip
  • And remember, finger foods rule!

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.
