Informal Workshops are held on the 2nd Wednesdays of each month from 9-2 at the the Venice Community Center.   Our ongoing Community Service project  is to make nap quilts for every child entering the Head Start program in south Sarasota County.  The quilts were delivered in August, but you can still turn in quilts at any informal workshop.   The Community Service committee is always looking for donations of fabric suitable for childrens quilts - bright solids and fun themes.

Our Treasurer points out that when you mail to the guild Post Office Box, you can save a stamp by combining all of your mail (membership, class enrollment or Quilt Escape) into one envelope.  You can also write one check for the total if you prefer.
