Often known in other guilds as “Bees”,
Tributaries are small groups that meet regularly for members to share their
love of quilting. Meetings are very casual and always open to
visitors and/or new members. All offer plenty of free
advice. Sometimes of it is even about quilting! Following
is a quick summary of the current Tributaries.
Please note: There is no limit to the number of tributaries
in Red River Quilters. If you would like to start a new group please
let any Board Member know so we can help you get started. The
more the merrier!

Pack a lunch and prepare to laugh! The Haughton Quilters usually work on
individual projects (both by hand and machine) but sometimes tackle a common
pattern. Twice a year the group organizes a 4-day overnight quilting retreat.
There are also 3-day “sew-ins” twice a year at the church.

This group meets monthly to

Thursdays sharing quilting, laughs and dessert! Everyone brings their own
works-in-progress to stitch (both by hand and machine) although there’s often a

dessert in a pieceful setting. Like a box of chocolates, you never know
what you are going to get!
