I have belonged to my local quilt guild since it's inception 15 or so years ago. They are mostly residents of a small town and fairly conservative. Not a problem, but it is a challenge at times. I do my best to shake them up and get them to stretch by trying something new. Regardless of that, I do enjoy the friendship and sharing. They are kind and generous people and I enjoy the time I spend with them.
Every meeting we have show and tell which involves story telling about the item being displayed. That is an added chance to learn about my fellow quilters and for them to share what they learned while working on that particular project.
One good thing is that they stay true to use being a quilt guild. Many years ago, I belonged to a smocking guild. It was a great learning opportunity, but after a year or two, they changed and started doing all sorts of other crafts and no more smocking. Not what I wanted, I left.
I am wondering if any of my readers belong to in person guilds for their stitching? or other artistic endeavours?
As I go along, I am minding less that it is curling in. Now to see how long it will get.
Please leave a comment telling me about your experiences in an artistic guild.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress
of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the
encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their
blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute
little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a
comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
I hope that you are having fun and making progress on
whatever project is dear to your heart at this moment. Mister Linky is
waiting below for a link to your needlework post.
