Murder at Pieceful Lake! Murder Mystery Night
Who murdered Betty Bitchay at the quilt retreat? Was it Lotta Agression, Bitsey Pieces or another quild member? What a fun evening of laughter, food and suspense. The cast did a great job of portraying their characters as well as the audience members. It was not easy trying to figure out the murderer of Betty Bitchay who was laying on the floor with her prize quilt! Thanks Judy for planning the evening for us.

Our Guild members have the opportunity to meet every Thursday for a "Thursday Sewcial" at Mills Chapel Baptist Church from 10:00-2:00. It is a great time to share ideas and socialize while working on projects. Stop in any time and don't forget to bring a lunch. ** Note: The 2nd Thursday of every month will be dedicated to working on our Compassion quilts. Please join us.
Common Threads Quilt Guild is 10 years old!
On August 22 the guild celebrated it's 10th Birthday! 10 years of fun, friendship, compassion sewing and learning new skills. A good time was had by all. Food, friends and beautiful quilts filled the Mills Baptist Gymnasium.
Formed in 2006 by a handful of quilters, the guild now numbers over 80 members who are devoted to the art of quilting.
Community service is an important objective of the guild. Members meet to create quilts for homeless veterans housed at Ft. McPherson, quilts and pillowcases for the Welcome House and Angel’s House, quilts and burp cloths for the Coweta Pregnancy Center, as well as quilts for the families of fallen soldiers of Coweta County.
The guild meets on the fourth Monday of the month from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Mills Chapel Baptist Church. Quilters are invited to visit our meetings as guests to learn more about the guild.
