Group settings

The guild hosts a retreat weekend in January which provides a fun weekend away from home for members to work on individual projects or to work on projects the retreat committee designs.


As part of our charter, Darting Needles provides quilts to local charities. There are usually two meetings per year for working on or presenting quilts made for charitable giving. Darting Needles members have provided several hundred quilts to local charities since it's inception.
