Bay Oaks Quilt Guild was founded in the early 2000s by Zoe Bowers and friends. Today, we have about 40 members who meet to quilt and learn with each other every month.
Bay Oaks Members contribute to a number of charitable causes in our communities. Our members have donated to Brenda's House, Friends of the Animal Shelter, the Hancock County Food Pantry, and many more. We truly enjoy using our skills to give back to our communities!

Our program meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of each month (except Nov & Dec). We usually have a guild member teach a technique or project to the guild, but sometimes have a guest instructor or other activities. Come learn and have fun with us!
Sit 'N Sews are a time set aside to bring whatever you’d like to work on and sew in the company of other members, one Saturday a month from 9am-3pm. You can come for any portion of the time- this is a flexible, stress-free day! You can bring lunch or make a food run. If you can make these occasionally, it’s great fellowship and fun!
Sew 'N Draws are when members come together bringing fabric (per coordinators’ instruction) and put together a quilt top in a day. Some sew, some press, some cut, some layout- the ultimate quilters’ assembly line! At the end of a day, a name is drawn from the participants and that lucky winner gets to keep the top.
