What We Do…
Florida Cabin Fever Quilters Guild opened its doors to Central Florida almost 30 years ago. Since then, our members have produced countless numbers of quilts for personal use as well as for community service. Our annual programs include a mystery quilt, a challenge quilt and a 12-month block of the month program which we make available to non-members as well. Additionally, the Guild hosts a bi-annual quilt show at the Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando, FL. We host an annual retreat and as well as bus trips to a quilt shows and other quilt-related activities. We bring in national teachers to host workshops and lectures. Some of our past teachers been Ricky Tims, Sue Nickels, Esterita Austin, Jan Krentz, Karen F. Buckley, Suzanne Marshall, Eric Drexler, and Karol Kusmaul– just to name a few.

Next Meeting – June 1, 2015, 6:30
Our June meeting will feature Cecelia Reed of Pat’s Sacks in Titusville. Cecelia’s late mother, Pat, authored several books about seed sack quilts, and Cecelia is carrying on her tradition.
During the great depression and World War II, the only source of fabrics was often a feed or seed sack. The sacks were made of cotton cloth, many of which featured floral, gingham, or other colorful designs. Clothing and household goods like curtains and quilts were often made from the sacks. Join Cecelia for a fascinating lecture and trunk show featuring these treasures of bygone days.
