Most months, our guild has a class or event in the afternoon after the guild meetings. The guild meets once a month on the third Saturday of the month at the Centerpoint Church in Pagosa near Walmart on Cornerstone Dr. The classes and events are also held in the church.
Below are the classes planned for 2023. Our calendar can change so be sure to check often to see if something has changed or a class has been added.
Classes are $10 for members per class and $20 for non-members per class. You can sign up for a class at the meetings in the months leading up to the class or you can email Carla Hellwege and make arrangements to pay for the class. Most events other than classes are free!
If you are unable to attend class for any reason, you may sell your spot to another member, however, if that’s not possible, you will forfeit your class fee. We will not be issuing credits for classes that are missed. Any class materials or website links given out during the class will be emailed to all paid participants even if you did not attend the class.
If you have ideas or suggestions for classes or activities for next year or questions about programs for this year, please contact Sherry Scarapulla. Supply lists will be posted below as they become available.
Keep scrolling down below the class list for more program related information!

Brown Bag Program
Join the Brown Baggers 2023. Let your fellow quilters help you finish a quilt this year. Decide on your block or blocks (not too hard please) and your fabrics. Bring a brown bag with your pattern, instructions and fabric to the January meeting. We will pass the bags around and by the end of the year you should have the beginnings of a great quilt. We have 9 quilters now but would love more to participate. For more information contact Delani Smith at email@example.com
Participants brought a UFO (Unfinished Object) to the January 2023 Meeting and pledge to finish it by the September 2023 meeting. Each quilter had her picture taken with the project. During the September Meeting those who signed up will bring the completed project for a special Show-and-Tell session and prizes will be awarded for those who finish.
