Meeting Schedule (beyond the highlighted event below) is on the Events page.
Thursday, April 1, 2021 at 6:45 p.m.
No foolin' we will be meeting via zoom AND in person (MASKED) for those who are comfortable.
The location is at 12 Springs Church at 614 Florida Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34236 There are warehouse doors that we will keep open for the meeting and sit near so there is good airflow. Click the link for the map.
We can park on both sides of the street all the way down - even in front of the middle school (Sarasota School of Art & Science) despite what the signs say. The dumpster may be picked up before then and we will have a couple more spaces - the church is in the process of some renovations and they are aiming to be done by Easter Sunday.
PLEASE LET US KNOW ASAP IF YOU WILL BE ATTENDING IN PERSON.

What we do
The Guild works on a different challenge or project each month.
Members can catch up here (login required)!
From crib size to king size quilt, we support local charities.
We also have members who create fidget quilts for charity.
Many of our members have recently contributed to the guild effort of making masks for local health offices and community service organizations. More than 3,000 masks have been made and contributed to these efforts. Our efforts were recently featured in an article on Sarasota Magazine's website and in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.
More information about our project can be found on our mask project page, including requesting masks, how you can help our efforts, and some of the patterns we are using.
We have several smaller groups meet throughout the greater Sarasota area. Named after the dolphin pods that swim in the Gulf of Mexico, we encourage our members to visit a pod and sew with some new friends!
More information is available to members in the members page (login required).
