Programs that provide organized opportunities for individuals to pursue their interest in quilting, often through the medium of a club or society which is under the leadership of people who are knowledgeable in the subject. Activities may include lectures by people with quilting expertise; demonstrations of quilting techniques; and regular meetings at which members share tips, patterns and information about current projects, work on individual or joint projects (some of which may be charitable) and enjoy the company of other enthusiasts. Some quilting clubs may also arrange for discounts on materials and tools; sponsor exhibits or sales of quilts, clothing and other quilted items created by members; publish a newsletter; or provide a library of resources about the craft. Included are Internet-based virtual clubs, WebRings devoted to the subject and clubs where members meet face-to-face.
