Retreat - At least once a year we pick a site to have a sewing retreat at the members own expense.
Sewing Bee - (Temporarily suspended due to COVID-19) Our guild members meet and bring an array of sewing projects they are working on the 4th Thursday of the month (except November and December) at Gashland United Methodist Church, 7715 N. Oak Trafficway, Kansas City, MO. The only exceptions being November and December.
Memory Makers - (Temporarily suspended due to COVID-19) This group also meets on the 4th Thursday at Gashland United Methodist Church. They baste quilts that need to be hand quilted. Each lady that helps baste a quilt logs her time. For every four hours she bastes, she receives one quilt basted for $1. If you are a member of the guild but have not previously basted any quilts and you'd like a quilt basted, the fee is $20. This fee is also applicable to people outside our guild.
Charity Quilts - Members donate quilts to organizations such as Northland Hospice, Quilts of Valor, Liberty Pregnancy Center, fire and police departments.
Library - We maintain an extensive library of quilting-related books that may be checked out by our members.
Peer to Peer Classes - Quilt techniques taught by our members.
Mini Groups - Small groups meet to work on a technique or type of quilt such as Crazy Quilt, Panels, Wool Work, or Quilts of Valor. The groups meet monthly in homes or library meeting rooms.
Northland Needler's Quilt Show - We hold an annual quilt show in September in conjunction with the Nitetime Needlers Guild. The quilt show includes vendors, a bazaar, silent auction, special exhibits, and of course approximately 100 exquisite handmade quilts. Please click here for more details about the Quilt Show.
Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival - This festival originated in 2015 and will be held every two years. We are proud to be a supporter of this fabulous show. Please click here for the Regional Quilt Festival website.
