Becoming a Member
Membership in Quilters Anonymous is open to anyone interested in quilts or quilting. Non-members may attend twice as our guests before joining the guild as members.
The QA membership year runs from October through the following September. Membership dues are $40 for the full year and are due by September 15th. Members who join on or after March 1st pay $20 for the partial year’s membership. Members aged 80 years or older are granted free lifetime membership.
A new member receives a membership packet, a nametag, and a roster upon joining. QA members receive the monthly newsletter, may attend meetings, may use the library and are eligible to participate in workshops and the annual quilt show.
Each member receives a new membership roster once a year in November. The roster covers the By-laws and the Standing Rules, identifies the officers and chairperson for each committee, provides information about the annual quilt show, and contains the names of all members who joined by September of that year.
Each member is required to work 4 hours per year as chairperson, committee member or volunteer at the quilt show.
By custom, although not by Standing Rule, each member is expected to purchase at least 10 tickets for the annual raffle quilt.
There are no other specific requirements for volunteering in QA although the organization depends heavily on the volunteer efforts of all the members.
