Piecemakers Guild of Oxford will be holding an Open House later this month to bring awareness to the art of quilt making and highlight the group’s community involvement.

Organized in 1992, Piecemakers provides quilters opportunities to grow and develop artistically, and technically, in all areas of quilt making, as well as learn more about the history of quilts.

There is also an online auction on a quilt made by a guild member. Bidding ends Aug. 13 and the winner will be announced at the Open House. The current bid is at $295.

To place a bid on the quilt, go to:

The guild meets on the second Saturday of each month at 10:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall of First Presbyterian Church. The monthly meetings provide programs on a variety of quilting techniques and demonstrations.
