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
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.
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.
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.
