Southern Comforters meetings begin business at 7:30 pm on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at Christian Community Presbyterian Church (3120 Belair Drive, Bowie, Maryland). Doors open at 6:30 for those who wish to socialize prior to the meeting.
Meetings include announcements from various committees and officers, show and tell, and often special programs. Occasionally, potluck celebrations are held. Doorprizes are awarded most meetings for birthdays, nametags, and block-of-the-month winners. Selections from the guild library are available for borrowing, and often members clean out their stash of fabric, magazines, and other supplies for other guild members to enjoy. Mostly, though, members sit around large round tables, work on various sewing (or knitting) projects, and catch up with each other.
Emergency Weather Meeting Cancellation Policy
Southern Comforters meetings will be cancelled if any of the following occurs:
- If it is snowing at the time of the meeting.
- If Prince George’s or Anne Arundel County Schools are closed on a meeting day.
- If Prince George’s or Anne Arundel counties cancel evening activities on a meeting night.
The meeting in November is on the 5th Wednesday (if there is one), rather than the day before Thanksgiving. No meeting on the 4th Wednesday in December.
Guests are welcome to attend one general meeting at no charge, but we encourage you to join to take advantage of programs, newsletters, the library, and other sharing opportunities.
