May 19 Guild Meeting and May 20 Workshop have been CANCELLED

During these uncertain times and keeping the health and safety of our members as well as that of our speaker top of mind, the May 19 guild meeting and May 20 workshop featuring Nancy Prince have been cancelled.  If you signed up for this workshop, you will be receiving a refund check in the mail shortly.  If you paid using a workshop credit, that credit may be used again on a future workshop.

Important information regarding Pride of the Prairie Opportunity Quilt

 The winning ticket was originally going to be drawn at our April, 2020 meeting.  However, with COVID-19 and sheltering in place, we had postponed the drawing until our May meeting.  Because that meeting has now been cancelled, we will draw the winning ticket at our next guild meeting as soon as the sheltering-in-place is lifted for our guild.  Please keep watch on our website as this date will be announced as soon as we know when we will be meeting.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this extremely difficult time.  We hope you continue to stay safe until we can get together again.




Dear friends,

There is no higher priority to the officers of the Pride of the Prairie Quilt Guild than the health and safety of our entire quilting community including our quilt show guests and guild members. That being said, after much consideration as to the latest comments from our government officials, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and WHO (World Health Organization), the senior board members of Pride of the Prairie Quilt Guild have decided to postpone the quilt show scheduled for this weekend.

It is our hope that we can work with our venue, participants and awesome vendors to hold the show at some later date this year and we will keep you all informed as to any updated information. Watch our Facebook page and website (www.prideofprairie.org) for any updated information about the show as well as our schedule of speakers and workshops.  The winner of our opportunity quilt will be drawn at our April 16, 2020 guild meeting so feel free to contact any guild member directly to purchase tickets. Tickets are 6 for $5 or $1 each.

Thank you all for understanding that this has been a difficult decision but one we believe to be the wisest for the safety of all.

Stay safe and enjoy some time creating and stitching at home as we move forward in these turbulent times.
