Meetings are held on the first Saturday of the month at 9:30 a.m (except where noted). There are no meetings in the months of July and August. We currently meet at the United Hill Methodist Church, 11 Church Street, Norwell, MA in the church hall.
New member and guests are always welcome at our meetings. Please contact us if you'd like to join our guild.
Our new Program Committee (Debra Hayes and Nancy McLain) are busy at work arranging our presentations for the upcoming year. We want to thank Janice Barclay and Janet McGinty for the great job they've done for the past three years keeping us entertained with lots of wonderful presenters and demonstrations.
While we're waiting to receive the information on who will be entertaining us for the upcoming year we'd like you to mark your calendars for the dates of our meetings:
July and August there are no guild meetings.
In order to reserve your spot in a workshop, fees are due when you sign-up. If you have any questions, please contact Debra Hays or nancy McLean at one of our meetings.
REMEMBER TO WEAR YOUR NAME BADGES!
When Herring Run Quilt Guild was first formed in February 1989 one of the conditions for membership was making and wearing name badges. The motivation behind the badge requirement was to make it easier for members to get to know one another. As our numbers have increased, it has become even more important than ever to honor the intent of our founding mothers. Please wear your badge. Your intricate identifiers help us to put names and faces together. Besides, it’s not like you’re working in the customer service department, we’re having fun! We look forward to the day when we no longer need to collect fines for badges not worn! We have two different versions of our name badge, one with the HR symbol and one of a paper pieced fish that was designed by Carol Doak.

Sunshine Information: Do you know of someone in the guild that has had a personal loss or is seriously ill? Please pass this information on to our Vice President, Charlie DiSante at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 617-905-4438 so we can send cards, flowers or donations from the guild. Please make sure you give her the full name, address and information on where to send a donation if one is requested.
Our current dues are $40 for full-time members and $20 for Associate members. Dues are payable in May or June. Per our by-laws members whose dues remain unpaid after the June meeting shall be notified by the Membership Chairman and after June 30th shall be automatically dropped from membership unless otherwise voted by the Executive Board. New members may join in September.
Workshop registration: You will need to pre-register and pay at the same time to hold your space.
Hospitality: It is every HRQG member’s caloric duty to contribute to our communal sustenance for at least one meeting per year. September’s goodies are provided by your board members.
WE'RE GOING GREEN!To help protect the environment, honor the requests of the Church, and cut down on our monthly bills, we would like guild members to bring their own coffee mugs to the meetings if at all possible.
Our goal is simple -
