Once or twice each year, our guild members share their time and talents with the community by offering handmade items for sale. We sew items all during the year, donate them to the guild’s fundraising committee to tag and price, then set up and help “staff” the booth at community events. Income from sales helps fund our guild’s charity projects and educational programs for members. Credit cards are accepted.

Upcoming Events

“Market for Missions”

The Alamance Piecemakers Guild is participating in a NEW holiday event sponsored by Front Street Methodist Church in Burlington, NC. They have asked us to bring quilts to sell, so we are working toward having another nice variety of sizes and styles (similar to what was displayed in our Silent Quilt Auction at this year’s “Art Feeds the Soul Quilt Show.) Our target is to offer 20 quilts, including baby quilts, couch throws, wall-hangings, and seasonal table toppers. You can expect the prices to range between $50 and $150. Contact us if you have a special request.

Past Events

We introduced TWO new fundraisers at the 2023 Quilt Show, which were very successful. Look for these fundraisers to come back for our 2024 Show coming up March 6-9. (For more info about the upcoming show, click “Joint Quilt Show” under our “Community” tab.)

Raffle of “Gift Baskets” (March 8-11, 2023)

A selection of over 20 themed gift baskets was available to choose from. Some of the baskets were sewing-related, but many were of interest to anyone regardless of your hobbies! Basket themes included: Movie Night, Chocolate Decadence, Picnic Basket, Tea Time, Morning Coffee, Pets, etc. Winners were selected by a random drawing from all tickets sold (at $1 each). You did not have to be present to win! Each basket was paired with its own jar to collect tickets. The winning tickets were drawn from each jar on Saturday at noon.

Leona’s “Picnic Bag” was one of the raffle basket items.

Quilt “Silent Auction” (March 8-11, 2023)

We surprised ourselves by collecting nearly 40 quilts for the Auction at the quilt show! About half of them were snatched up using the Buy-It-Now option. Bid Sheets were used to determine the sale price of the remaining quilts, and bidding closed on Saturday at 1 PM. Everybody who bought one got a great deal! Thanks for your support!

Quilt Show Boutique (March 2022)

If you attended the first “Joint” show in March of 2022, you will remember that BOTH sponsoring guilds set up their “Boutiques” on the raised stage area at the back of the large hall. We learned a few lessons from that experience! (which is why we are changing things up). 🙂

140th Anniversary of Glencoe Mills (April 30, 2022)

Our guild joined in the festivities to celebrate 140 years since the opening of Glencoe Mill (off Hwy 62, just north of Burlington), which supplied plaids throughout the world. The Textile Heritage Museum at Glencoe is the only one in NC, so visit it if you have the chance. We didn’t sell plaids at our boutique that day, but we tried to dress the part!

Merry Market (December 2021)

The photo below is from our boutique event during the holiday season, which took place at Village at Brookwood’s annual “Merry Market” for residents and the community. We were happy to be emerging from the pandemic!
