The Friends in Stitches Quilt Guild is currently in their second year.  In their first year they assembled the quilts for the City of Waterloo’s 125th Anniversary celebration.  One is currently on display at City Hall.  Local projects the guild is currently involved with are the Barn Quilt Trail for Monroe County and the Home Teams Smithsonian exhibit that will be at the Monroe County History Museum this summer.

The guild meets on the first Tuesday of the month at Hope Christian Church, 9273 Coach Stop in Columbia at 7 p.m.  New members are always welcome.

Meetings consist of a variety of activities:  speakers, demonstrations, sit n’ sew projects, block of the month instructions, mystery quilt assembly, and show & tell.  Checkout the Friends in Stitches Quilt Guild Monroe County Facebook page for pictures.  For more information on becoming a quild member contact Jan Whelan at or 618-281-8419.
