The Marathon Quilters Guild meetings begin in September each year and run through June. Meetings are every second Tuesday of the month, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., at the First Congregational Church, 146 East Main St., Hopkinton.
The evenings start with a social gathering and the meetings promptly start at 7 p.m., usually with a speaker or teacher. Guests are always welcome and invited to try two meetings before deciding to join and make it their own.
Annual guild membership dues are still only $25. Guild benefits include free lectures and inexpensive workshops by local and national instructors, great speakers and workshops, discounts at local quilt stores, monthly raffle, monthly Show and Tell by members, participation in outreach activities, a monthly newsletter, opportunity to show work in bi-annual quilt show, and the annual UFO Raffle (members bring in their UFO's and earn a chance to win a prize at the end of the year).
