Quilters' Workshop of Tampa Bay meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month at Christ the King Church in the Mary Martha Center. The social portion of the meeting begins at 6 p.m. and the business meeting begins at 7 p.m.
Throughout the year, QWS hosts a variety of other events including retreats, community service sewing events, and trips to local quilt shows. Check out our Event List for all the details.
At monthly meetings you are asked to sign the attendance sheet at the door, sign up for show and tell, and you can put your name on a list to be in a drawing for fun quilty door prizes each month. There are also fun monthly things to participate in. Some of them are listed below.
Block of the month Exchange
At monthly meetings, we offer a program called Block of the Month. Participating members each make one block or more (honoree's design) for the "honoree" of the month. Participating members earn credit for each block they complete, allowing them to earn their way to becoming a Block of the Month Honoree. Participation is voluntary, however if a member decided to participate, he/she is expected to abide by the guidelines established (all rules are listed on the Guild Handbook and By-Laws page). Only QWS members may participate.
Fat Quarter Exchange
If there is a fat quarter exchange at a meeting the theme will be noted in the newsletter. A fat quarter exchange is meant to be a fun way to swap fabric with fellow quilters. Bring along a small stack to throw into the mix, your name will be added to the pot and depending on how many FQs there are, a name; or multiple names, will be drawn to award the fabric booty to a participating member.
Each month members will be given the opportunity to participate in a cash drawing. Members buy tickets/chances and the total pot is split between the guild (as a small fundraiser each meeting) and one winning participant who's name is drawn during the meeting.
