At the risk of being controversial, I wonder how many of you are members of Guilds?
What role does your guild play in education in Quilting?
Is your Guild aligned with a certain sewing machine company?
I’m fortunate to attend Guild meetings throughout the world. Often my hosts say "you don’t have to sit through the meeting" However, I find it really interesting to see how other Countries run their host organizations.
There are often some very innovative ideas.
I’ve been to a formal indoor picnic where there was a competition to design the best table. I think ours was the best, silver service and all.!!!
I think the idea of a quilting pal is great… I would like to see more mentoring in Guilds and I don’t just mean the general members, I think we Tutors should lead by example.
Many guilds split into small groups, however, a group project by the entire guild brings people together who possibly wouldn’t go out to a smaller group.
Education is the key. I have seen wonderful results from Guilds supporting school programs.
I wonder what you think?
