Robson Ranch Material Girls Mission Statement


Mission Statement: To promote fellowship among quilters, sewers and embroidery crafters and to develop and implement programs and workshops. To inspire, share knowledge and ideas with fellow quilters/sewers while creating and distributing various items to local charities.

Meeting Place and Times: The club meets at the Robson Ranch Creative Arts Center on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and sometimes Saturdays. During winter months, the center is open at 9:00 am. Other times may be available for members during general use times. Hours are reduced during the summer.

Meetings: The club has a general business meeting each month from November through April on the second Friday at 10:00 AM. We meet at the Creative Arts Center at 9:30 AM for a social and begin the meeting at 10:00 AM. During each month we celebrate birthdays of that month and the 6 month previous when we don’t meet. We also have a show and tell of projects that members have completed.

Membership: Membership is open to residents. Each member must complete an orientation to the sewing room and sign a Robson Ranch waiver before using the sewing room. A resident or house guest of a homeowner may enjoy the use of the studio two times during monitored times. After two times, the individual must join the club in order to use the studio. Members must provide their own basic sewing kits and materials including necessary threads for their projects. However, for use while at the studio, these items are provided: Cutting Tables, Design Wall, Rental Machines, Irons, Cutting Mats, Rulers, Pressing Stations, and some Specialty Tools and Rotary Cutters.

Club fabrics and supplies are available to all members for comfort and charity quilts they may choose to make. There is also an Accu-Cutter and Long Arm sewing machine available for use by members upon completion of training course.

Prior to using the Long Arm or Accu-Cutter, a member must be trained on these machines by a RRMG certified trainer. Safety is a priority in using the studio.

Fees: Annual dues are $20.00. Dues are due on January 1st each year. Orientation fee is $5.00 for a non-member not joining. There may be additional fees for classes given by members or guest speakers.

Charity/Comfort Quilts: Each year the club chooses a non-profit organization for a charity project. We currently are making lap sized quilts for the Eloy Police Department to carry 1-2 quilts in each police car to give to a child when they have been removed from their home and to the Family Advocacy Center for children. We also support the Eloy Senior’s residence and the cancer clinic for chemo therapy Each member is encouraged to make at least one charity quilt per year. The club also provides lap sized quilts to our residents who are seriously ill or have lost a spouse.
