About the Palm Creek Sewers and Quilters

We are the Palm Creek Sewing and Quilting Guild.  The name symbolizes an all-inclusive group of individuals who wish to use the Sewing Room facility to enjoy sewing, quilting, or needlework of any type and form, whether by hand or machine at the Palm Creek RV and Golf Resort.

Mission Statement
Helping and encouraging our fellow sewers to communicate their skills through learning, love, friendship, outreach and caring.

Our sewers and quilters are fortunate and proud to have our 'own building' here in Palm Creek.  We enjoy each others company, and share our talents in a spacious room that includes large cutting tables, oversized ironing boards, numerous tables that will comfortably accommodate six sewers/quilters, and lockers and cubbies to house our machines and supplies.  In addition, we have several design walls, a mini kitchen, onsite storage for the guild, a library, and a designated area for displaying upcoming projects and classes.

Our Membership of 200+ includes ladies interested in sewing, serging, embroidering, and quilting.  We have an elected Board,  who are responsible for leading our group.   In addition to their official duties, they can be found in the Sewing Room most days and are enthusiastic participants in all aspects of our guild. 

The Palm Creek Sewing Room is located in Building F behind the Ballroom.  The hours are generally 10am to 4pm and 6pm to 9pm daily.  Use of the sewing room is monitored by volunteers.  A schedule is posted on the north door of the Sewing Room.

All “residents” of Palm Creek are welcome to use the facilities of the sewing room and are asked to check in the sewing room for guidelines for use of space and equipment.  Sewing machines are available for rental ($2/day) and there are various tools available for use.  You are welcome to bring your own equipment and there is storage space available on a “first come, first served” basis.  The Palm Creek sewers are a very friendly group and helpful with any project.  Ask the monitor on duty if you have any questions.

Membership in the Palm Creek Quilt Guild is open to all residents of Palm Creek Golf and RV Resort.   There is no membership fee.

Regular meetings of the guild are generally held in season (November to March) every Thursday at 10:15 in either the Ballroom or the SanTan Room.  Everyone is welcome!

Classes and social events are also scheduled throughout the season.  Monthly calendars are published listing all classes and events and are posted in the sewing room and e-mailed to members on our roster.  Nominal fees are charged for classes.  The guild also does many community service projects and holds an annual quilt show.

You are welcome to visit the Sewing Room at any time it is open, chat with a monitor to get any additional information you may need, and see what projects we are working on and the FUN we are having.

We look forward to meeting you!
