Every year, a new Secret Pal group is established with a volunteer who oversees the program. Participants recognize Secret Pal’s birthday, anniversary and other times during the year with a gift not to exceed $10.
Secret Pals are revealed at the November or December business meetings.
Each member is encouraged to attend the guild meeting during the month of their birthday. Members select a free Fat Quarter of their choice for their birthday
FQ Christmas Baskets
A member volunteer heads up this project each year soliciting fat quarters from members, collecting and storing the fabric and assembling gift baskets filled with a number of fat quarters. Members are given one ticket for every fat quarter they donate. The drawing takes place at the December guild meeting.
Throughout the year, members donate new or gently used quilting, sewing and needlework items to the guild. Our Auctioneer prepares $2 brown bags each month and members participate in an auction for these goods and brown bags at the regular business meeting.
This activity is used as a source of revenue for KQG.
Member volunteer(s) take on the monthly task of constructing and preparing instructions for the Block-of-the-Month. Instructions are published in our monthly Newsletter.
Members then receive one chance for every block they submit and the blocks are then drawn for at the regular business meeting.
Depending on member volunteers, other activities are held throughout the year. These include but are not limited to:
Friendship Block Exchange
Brown Bag Challenge
All these activities are chaired by volunteer members
