"Ordinary women stitched together with friendship and sharing."

IMG_3777

The Czar Quilters Guild was formed in April of 2001 with 21 ladies attending.  Before that meeting was over they had already outgrown the anticipated meeting place.  The executive positions were filled by volunteers, and the guild set a goal to become a gathering for women of all ages and walks of life.  It remains as a goal to provide an atmosphere whereby all women can attend and participate in a non-competitive, friendly and encouraging manner.  Anyone can join Czar Quilters Guild.  Knitters, scrapbookers, or even those just needing some time away for themselves are welcome.  They meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at Czar Cultural and Recreation Center (Czar Hall) from 10am to 4pm. 

For more information, check out their website at www.czarquilters.org
