June is our glorious summer and if you would like to take a break from yard work then activity day is just the ticket.

Our next meeting is June 10, 2023 at the Calvary Lutheran Church, 1011 N. Compton, Post Falls, ID from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm.

June will be our next installment of your mystery program clues.

Please remember to bring your own lunch. You may bring a finger food snack to share if you wish. The NEW Keurig machine will be available for your drink pods. (BYOP)

Why not come on over and spend some time with your fellow guild members for some sewing and chatting with friends.

I am planning a quilt as you go hexagon demo for you. Hope to see you there.

Hello Members!  Community Service Quilt Tying will be held the second Tuesday of every month (EXCEPT July and December) from 1:00 - 3:00 pm at the Human Rights Education Institute.  The address is:  414 W. Fort Grounds Dr., Coeur d'Alene. It is the two-story brick building across the parking lot from the Merry-go-Round.  Our next Community Service date is Tuesday, May 9, 2023.  Always check the guild calendar for possible date changes.


Once you enter the front door, we will meet in the large room to your left. I will have parking passes ready for your car, there is no charge to either park or participate!  Masks are encouraged.


The public is welcome to join and help assemble and tie quilts. We accept donations of fabric, quilt blocks, quilt tops, and finished quilts.  Currently, charities are requesting boys (ages 6 - 18) and men themed and colored quilts in lap to twin size.  The backing should be appropriate as well!  We also have a request for 14 twin sized quilts with gender neutral (non-floral) backings. 

If you have a quilt top or finished quilt to pass to Community Service, please contact me and we can arrange to meet.

If you can't help out on Tuesdays, we also make a huge presence at each Activity Day by setting up quilts to be tied. This is a great way to help complete the many quilts that are needed throughout our community. Come join in!


Watch this site for more information. We'd LOVE to have you join us!

Community Service Needs Your Help!

Community Service needs many helping hands!


Our NIQ quilt inventory is dwindling, and we have requests for more quilts, the CS group has donated 70 quilts this past month! There are several quilt tops that need backing, machine or tied quilting and binding (roll-over is fine!). The preferred quilt size is lap or twin size.


Thank You for Your Help!
