About the Meetings
Martin County Quilters is a quilt guild dedicated to the education and growth of the art of quilting.
Established in 2006 by Dori Hawks with a handfull of quilters, we’ve grown to a membership of close
to one hundred. Our members have a vast range of abilities from beginner quilters to quilters who
have won "Best of Show" at major quilt shows. Some members play with traditional methods while
others use artistic techniques.
At each second Thursday of the month meeting, we have a national or local guest speaker or
educational program of some kind. Some of the national teachers we’ve had in the past have been
Laura Wasilowski, Ellen Lindner, Sharon Schambers, Mary Sorenson, and Marianne Williamson. We
always have "Sew & Tell," a few raffles, an annual retreat, a holiday party, and we support local
charities each year. Some of the charities we have supported include the House of Refuge, Pink Ties
Friends, Hibiscus Center for Children, Molly’s House and Council on Aging and SafeSpace. But most of
all, we love to have fun!
