Silver Comet Stitchers Guild’s Story
Silver Comet Stitchers Quilt Guild officially organized June 19, 2006 when three long-time quilters, Linda Patton, Barbara Stevens, and Sarah Sorenson, hosted a meeting at Linda’s quilt shop to explore community interest in forming a Paulding County guild. Not knowing if anyone would attend, the three founders of the guild recall joking about where they’d go to dinner if no one else came. Imagine their surprise and joy when the meeting turned out to be standing room only! There were 28 quilters in attendance that night and the guild never looked back as it grew through the years.
The purpose of the Guild is to promote and preserve the art of quilting through friendship. The Guild intends to benefit and educate those interested in all forms of the art by sharing knowledge and quality time together.
