The group currently meets the second Monday of each month, 1 p.m. at the 1st Methodist Church of Lake Wales, 230 St. N. Everyone is welcome, the fee to attend is $1.

The Lake Wales Quilters Guild provides donations to Lake Wales Charter Schools, Lake Wales Care Center and the Polk County Sheriff's Department.

Members of the group are all skill levels, from beginners to experienced, enabling members to teach and learn from each other.
