ARTS & CRAFTS
STITCH & KABITZ
The group meets in the Arts & Craft room downstairs in the clubhouse. Residents come and go as their schedules permit and the ladies work on their own projects (embroidery, knitting,crocheting, quilting, etc.).
From time to time, the ladies work on charity projects, making lap blankets for soldiers or knit caps for newborns. If you want to learn a sewing skill, there is probably someone in this group who can teach it to you.
All residents welcome!
Meets Thursdays 2 - 4 pm
QUILT GROUP - Meets the 3rd Monday every month
We are a social group dedicated to sharing the joy of quilting, improving quilting skills and knowledge by sharing our experiences, techniques, training and resources. We meet monthly and have no dues. Our only requirement is that to participate in group shows, one must donate one quilt to charity annually. Sales of any group projects subsidize our charitable work, which has included community support and Project Linus.
We are planning a group "Shop Hop" and lunch this summer and encourage any interested parties to join us. We welcome new quilters and fabric donations.
Please contact Judy Bernard, 630-852-7075 or at email@example.com, with any questions.
The Writers' Guild consists of writers and wanna-be-writers who support each other's writing. We brainstorm ideas and review/critique each other's work. In addition, we published "Writing a Creative Path," our first edition of a book of short articles and poetry written by and about our neighbors in Carillon in 2019. (Available in the Clubhouse library and website.)
We are planning a 2020 edition.
New members are welcome.
Contact person is Jill Stolpestad.
