The Guild tea, established by founding member Laura Sorton, happens annually on the 3rd Saturday in July. This luncheon gives us an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of our members from the preceding year and to swear in new officers for the upcoming year. A challenge is often issued.
The Guild celebrates the holiday season on the 3rd Saturday in December, and gifts are exchanged.
Initiated in 2006 by Myla Chapman, the Try Guild is an annual meeting of several quilt guilds in the Atlanta area. Originally including the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild, the Intown Quilters, and the Phoenix Quilt Guild, these three guilds established the tradition of issuing a challenge for members of each guild. These and other guilds now participate in the annual challenge at a Show-and-Tell meeting in January, and the guilds rotate in issuing the challenge.
