You can contact us by calling or emailing
any of our members directly

Our current Membership Chair is Chryste Krause at Quilts on the Ridge, and our website manager is Carole Carter at Mountain Needlecrafts.  See their pages for contact information if you have questions.

Please do not ask for advice on purchasing a longarm or beginning a business.  That is not something we can provide, as our good natures have been taken advantage of in the past.  Current longarm owners are welcome as guests at our meetings, just show up.  Sorry, our group is only open to current longarm or midarm owners.
