How to Get Involved
Become A Member
Annual dues are $55 beginning November 1, 2020. Your membership is valid for 365 days from your join date.
Membership dues may be paid online or by mail, either by check or credit card. If you pay by credit card online, there is a processing fee of $1.90 so your total will be $56.90.
Attend a Workshop
Workshops are open to both guild members and non-guild members. Because the cost of the workshops is subsidized by members’ dues, non-members are asked to pay an additional $20 per workshop. Non-members are able to register for a workshop approximately two months prior to the workshop.
Quilt for SafeHouse
The Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild is a sponsor of SafeHouse Center of Washtenaw County. SafeHouse provides free and confidential services for those who live or work in Washtenaw County impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault. Their services include emergency shelter for those in danger of being hurt or killed, counseling, legal advocacy, support groups — and especially hope. Each person who resides in the shelter leaves with a donated quilt.
Join a Small Group
A small group is composed of guild members of 4 or 40 (but could include non-members), who meet on a regular basis for sharing friendship and their love of quilting. This benefits the guild by giving our members a way to get to know other members and feel connected.
GAAQG is an organization that is run entirely by volunteer members. Volunteering means accepting a specific responsibility as a member to accomplish work for the Guild. There are many tasks, both large and small, that make our Guild vibrant, from serving as an officer to helping at one of our special events. When you renew your membership annually, you can express an interest in volunteering or sharing a special skill you have so that the Guild can contact you for advice or assistance with a special project. There are many ways to become involved, whether you have a little time or a lot. Guild volunteers are eligible to be included in the annual drawing for a Worker’s Quilt at the November Quilt Day.
