FSQ membership year runs from June 1 to May 31 of the following year. Membership is $35/ yr. ($15 non-residents). Our membership drive starts at the May meeting. You must join or renew by the September meeting to have an entry in our annual directory. New members joining after December pay half of the annual dues for that year.
Friendship Star offers the following services to its guild members:
- A monthly newsletter identifying speakers for upcoming monthly meetings, activities of the various committees, any quilt shows in the area and any workshops that quilters may wish to take. Check out a Friendship Star Quilters Quiltline newsletter for an example of the events and activities of the guild.
- A regular library of books and tools for members to borrow.
- Small quilt groups meet for quilting and fellowship outside of the large monthly meeting. Since our guild has grown to over 140 members, one of the programs that we are beginning to offer is the mentoring of new quilters. It is an opportunity for new quilters to request help and advice from more experienced quilters. The Small Groups Committee Chair position is currently vacant. If you need information, or are interested in chairing this committee, please contact Info@friendshipstar.org. Someone will get back to you with a reply.
