!!About Material Girls

 Material Girls began in 2001 as a group of 25 quilters who wanted a local place to meet and share ideas and friendship. The group has grown to more than 60 members. We have won awards at several quilt shows in the area.

We meet the first Thursday of every month at 6:30 P.M. at the First Baptist Church of Miamisburg 323 North 11th Street, Miamisburg, OH 45342.

We are active in the community, doing several community service projects throughout the year. Among the projects we have done are making quilts for preemies, chemo caps and wheelchair bags for local hospitals and nursing homes.

There is something for everyone in our group, whether you are an experienced quilter or just beginning.

    I’ve been intending to come to a meeting ever since last spring. Never made it yet…now I work every Thurs at 6am, so staying awake and focused for an evening meeting hasn’t happened yet. See you at the Quilt Show, anyway!

  2. Dorothy Michalski says:

    Could you perhaps put specific meeting location/date/time on this page? I’ve figured out it’s the first Thursday of the month, but I am having trouble locating the address and time that you meet. How much are dues please?

    • Welcome to our blog! You can find meeting location and date and time on the page About Material Girls under Where and When. The various pages are listed on the right side of the screen. We meet the first Thursday of every month at 6:30 P.M. at the First Baptist Church of Miamisburg 323 North 11th Street, Miamisburg, OH 45342. Please join us

    Thanks for the clarification. I was clicking on the link to Where and When at the top of the page, not the one on the right hand side. That helped very much. See you next month perhaps. (Cannot come this week as I’m going to see my mom – that is her 94th birthday!)

    I am a beginning quilter that recently moved from Florida. Just found out about the guild today, but am definitely looking forward to attending next month.

  5. Marilyn Shade says:

    Sue Kennelly, looking forward to meeting you! This is a friendly, welcoming group, with all skill levels.

    I came to my first meeting tonight. May 31st. I really enjoyed myself. The quilts for Sow and Tell were wonderful

    • So nice to meet you tonight. Come join us next month for more lovely Show & Tell and our meeting topics are listed here also. We will have photos posted for tonight’s meeting soon.

  8. Sue says:

    I am a beginning quilter. I was wondering if you have room for another newbie? If so, what do I bring to the meetings? Thanks

  9. Marilyn Shade says:

    Hi Sue, great to hear you are on the track to learn quilting! Enjoy every minute. There is always room for more friends. I am not in charge of anything, including this blog, simply another member of the group. Just come to the meeting and introduce yourself to Shirley Holbrook, who is almost always seated at the registration table. No need to bring anything.

  10. Welcome Sue, glad you found us. As Marilyn said join us at our first Thursday monthly meetings 6:30 at the First Baptist Church of Miamisburg 323 North 11th Street, Miamisburg, OH. No need to bring anything unless you have a treasure you would like to share at our Show & Tell. We do love to show our treasures.
