Where: The Tucson Quilters Guild is located in Tucson, Arizona. Our meetings are held at St. Frances Cabrini Church, 3201 East Presidio, Tucson, Arizona. The church is located one block south of Ft. Lowell and one block east of Country Club.
When: We meet on the second Wednesday of the month at 9:30 a.m. I recommend that quilters get to the meeting by 9:00 a.m. for a seat. We also meet the Tuesday night before the Wednesday meeting at the same place. This will make it easier for members to attend our meetings. They will have the same speaker and events. Start time for the evening meeting is 7:00 p.m. Workshops are from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Who: The public is welcome to join our guild, dues are $30 a year, from July to June. All that is needed is an interest in quilting or quilts in general. Members must join by the October meeting in order to be able to hang a quilt in our show which is held each February and members must work at least one shift at the quilt show. Guests pay $5 for each meeting before becoming a member.Workshop registration for members is available at the Guild Business Meeting (first Wednesday of the month) five months prior to the workshop and also at the Guild General Meetings (second Wednesday morning of the month and the Tuesday night before the Wednesday meeting). Payment in full is due at the time of the sign-up. Workshops run from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.

New Grants Info-8/2/2016
Congratulations to our 2016 Grant Recipients:
Logging into the password site with a Mac:-updated
Here are some suggestions to get your Mac, Windows 10, iPhone or iPad to log into our site:
Try turning off cookies.
One member found that using Firefox with Windows 10 allowed her to successfully login to our site. Give it a try. If anyone has another solution to the login problem for Windows 10, please let me know.
From another member:
If people are having trouble with opening the website with Windows 10, there may be a quick fix. I have to do this with my Quick Books online. In the upper right corner of their browser (more than likely Microsoft Edge) there are the 3 dots. Click on that and click on ‘open with Internet Explorer’. They should be able to get in that way. IE has the big E with a yellow line circling it. Edge is only the plain blue E.
Another suggestion is to upgrade to 10.1.
Check your security settings, unfortunatley, I don't know at what they should be set.
Using a Mac
I went to the Apple Genius Bar at LaEncantada in NW Tucson and was given this information. You are welcome to bring your device down to them for help, no charge, but an appointment needs to be made.

For a Mac, if using the default Safari Browser version '10.10 Yosemite', go to Preferences/Privacy/Cookies & Web, and click on "Aways Allow" This is the newsest version of Safari. You can also try the option above Always Allow, it may work for you and be less restrictive.
If using an older version of Safari, follow the instructions
This part came from a member who was able to log in, the info came from her son:
go: Safari / Preferences / then select 'block cookies never'
Afterwards, toggle back to select 'block cookies from third parties and
This add-on came from another member talking about the above:
Yes it works !!! But I did need to select “Privacy” after “Preferences” in order to get cookie choices.
This came from yet another member:
The way I fixed the problem on my Mac was to download Firefox (for free). When I use Firefox instead of Safari to go online, I can get to the Guild website and log in without a problem. This might be helpful to share as some people don't want to have cookies blocked entirely. The man at the Genius Bar couldn't find anything to click on to make this work or not, it just worked.
Using an iPad or iPhone
Go to Settings/Safari/Block Cookies/Always Allow is best but can also click on 'Allow From Websites I Visit'
Please let me know if you find another solution,
The username and password box at the upper-left of this page will be the guild's way to access the newsletters and other member-only information for Guild members. The username and password are available from the Membership Director and are on the back of membership cards. I put a little note below the login box when the latest newsletter is posted. We are also adding other private information for Guild members.
Email the Membership Director with your whole name to get the current password. The Password will change for the new year at the end of March.
If you cannot see the login box in the frame at the upper left, your computer security settings may be too high. You will have to find out how to lower the settings so that the login box will show. You may also have to refresh your screen to see the newest newsletter after you login.
Newsletter Info and AdsThe deadline for newsletter content and ads will be the the second-to-last Wednesday of the month. Classified ads from Guild members and quilt related businesses for quilt related items will be accepted for the newsletter on a space available basis and at the discretion of the newsletter editor. The cost is $5.00 per member's ad with a maximum of 25 words per ad. Business ads cost $25.00 for one-eighth of a page. Ads are to be mailed to the newsletter editor with checks made payable to Tucson Quilters Guild. Include a return address so your check can be returned if your ad is not placed in the newsletter.
If you have the February/March 2016 issue of Quilters Newsletter Magazine, look on page 77 and you will see a photo of the Bees for Ethiopia quilt designed by Hope Johnson using sunflower blocks made last year by members of Tucson Quilters Guild and the Guild in Shelburne, Vermont. If you helped with this quilt, can you find your own block?
Here is a story from the Shelburne News in Vermont about this quilt.
The Bees For Development Sunflower Quilt, which Tucson
participated in making. Many quilters joined together to make blocks
for this quilt, under the direction of Hope Johnson of the Champlain
Valley Quilters Guild in Vermont, with assistance from Diana Sammataro
and Evelyn George in Tucson. The completed quilt, designed by Hope
Johnson, will be sold to raise funds for village beekeeping and
agricultural projects in Ethiopia under the direction of Bees For
