Activities and Benefits
We have monthly meetings and lectures, workshops, we participate
in community outreach projects, and host an occasional
Quilt Show and Day of Sharing. Many of our members belong
to Quilting Bees, participate in our Quilt Challenges and
make use of our extensive library. Members also receive
our monthly newsletter, "Quilting
Times", which can also be found on this website.
You will also receive discounts from local quilt shops
for being a guild member.
The Guild’s community outreach efforts include neonatal
quilts year-round for Nash General Hospital and Heritage
Hospital; Patriotic Quilts for wounded soldiers, adoption
quilts, and various other charity/outreach venues throughout
the year. Maryann Rettino, Sandy Harris & Gayle Helm
head up our community outreach.
Tar River Piecemakers Quilting Guild was founded
in 2000 by a group of 9 women (Helen Alston, Carolyn Batts,
Rachel Cowley, Susie Crumpler, Sue Fry, Louise Janelle,
Ann Layton, Ramona Orzell & Teresa Pierce) to promote
their love of quilt-making and to provide fellowship with
other quilters. Our main purpose as a non-profit organization
is to promote and perpetuate the art of quilting. The work
of the Guild is designed to benefit and educate all persons
interested in preserving, continuing and advancing this
art. Our challenge is to encourage continuing interest
in the art in all its forms and to promote the art by teaching
and sponsoring workshops and exhibits.
