Candlelight Guild

The Candlelight Quilt Guild was formed 5 years after Aberdeen’s first guild to encompass quilters who were unable to meet during the day. The Candlelight Quilters meet the fourth Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. Meetings are held on the first floor of the ARCC January through April and September through October. There is no meeting in November, due to Thanksgiving, and the December meeting date varies based on scheduling and is set by the Christmas Party Committee. Summer monthly meeting sites vary as well but are held on the fourth Thursday of the month.

Meetings are a casual gathering of friends. We have organized the bus shop hop, Joint Quilt Show, pictorial game of matching quit rooms to members, a “garage sale” of quilting items among members, baby quilts for the local hospitals, helping with Quilts of Valor, quilt retreats, sew days, a yearly challenge theme and a monthly “Fat Chance” drawing. Meetings also have a program, show and tell and lunch. Being a member of the evening guild charges and motivates one’s quilting juices!
