Club Activites

Our History

Shoofly Quilters was started in 1996 by a small group of ladies who met Fridays at the Payson Senior Center. The group decided to form a guild under the auspices of the Arizona Quilters Guild as that would provide further educational opportunities and gain access to national and state teachers.

The Shoofly name came from the common "Shoofly" quilt block and from the Shoofly Indian ruins located north of Payson.

The first official Shoofly meeting was held on February 2, 1996, at which time officers were elected. Since then the guild has continued to grow in numbers and in quilting knowledge, interest and service.

Shoofly Quilters make and donate quilts to several agencies in the State and in Rim Country. These include: Veterans Hospital, Payson Police & Fire Departments, Hospice Compassus, Oncology Center at Payson Regional Medical Center, Dialysis Center, and others.

We spend the 3rd Tuesday of each month working on community service quilts. Each spring we have a three-day Community Service Quiltathon. This is a fun-filled time of enjoying the company of friends while working together to create quilts to be given where a little love is needed.
