Subscription Membership
Allows for inclusion of past Regular Members who wish to maintain a "connection" with the guild. Persons currently on the waiting list for Regular Membership are encouraged to apply for Subscription Membership.  Subscription Members pay a guest fee of $5 when attending guild meetings.

Junior Membership
will consist of any person 12 to 17 years of age with an interest in the art of quilt making. Junior members must be accompanied by a Regular Member and can attend any meeting free. Junior members also have access to the guild library of books and videotapes. 

The membership renewal process begins in January and February for existing Regular Members. An application form is distributed at the meetings during those months and included in the monthly newsletter. Regular Members wishing to continue their membership status will complete the form and return it to the Membership Chairperson by the designated deadline. At this time a Regular Member may choose the Limited Membership option. 

A waiting list for Regular Membership is maintained and updated by the Membership Chairperson(s). Those names on the waiting list will be entered on a first come first served basis. Subscription Members wishing to upgrade their membership or potential new members will be added to the end of the list. As vacancies in Regular membership open, the Membership Chairperson will contact the next available name on the waiting list for membership.
