Circle in the Square Quilters Meetings
We hold six guild meetings during the year on the third Tuesday of January, March May, July, September, and October.
On the other months, we may have social meetings in a member's home.
We invite everyone, quilters and non-quilters alike, to join us. Each programs vary with presenters of diverse quilting topics. And a great members' show-and-tell.
Meetings start at 7:00 PM at the University United Methodist Church in University City, Missouri.
Social Meeting - February 19, 2019
This event has become a annual event. One of our members hosts a fabric swap in her home. We bring fabric from our stashes that needs a new home and take home other fabric that needs a new home. It's a fun night of lots of fabric to look at, take a bit of fabric home...and eat a few cookies.

Laura Saunders Kaiser, Fiber Artist
Laura Saunders Kaiser is a fiber artist and mother of three young children. She has been stitching and forging her own creative path since she was a young child, beginning with an original “Super Dad” embroidery design on a handkerchief. After designing and making her own wedding gown, she yearned for a new challenge and turned to quilting. A love of traditional quilting soon led to original designs and experiments with a variety of fibers, dyes, fabric painting, and surface design techniques as well as fiber art accessories. Laura’s work is rich with texture and color, often incorporating humor, text and nests. She draws inspiration from seeing a child’s carefree approach to creativity and enjoys playful experiments in her home studio. She is a member of the Flower Valley Quilt Guild, Missouri Fiber artists and ArtFiber St. Louis. Social Meeting - April 16, 2019
