How to Join
Becoming a member of the Cactus Patchers is easy! Attend a meeting and let the membership chair (who will greet you at the door) know that you are a guest. Guests may attend three meetings for free before joining. If you would like to become a member of Cactus Patchers ask for a membership form. Dues for Cactus Patchers are $20 per fiscal year (July 1-June 30) and are due when you join and each July 1 thereafter. Dues cover the cost of room rental, speaker fees, the annual Holiday party and other operating expenses of the group.
Cactus Patchers members must also join the Arizona Quilters Guild, since we are a chapter of the Guild. Your Arizona Quilters Guild dues help support the annual quilt show, travelling teacher program, national education teachers and other operating expenses of the group. There are 2 Guild meetings per year that all members are welcome to attend. The Arizona Quilters Guild dues are $30 per year for new members and $25 for renewals if paid by June 30. You can obtain an Arizona Quilters Guild membership form at a Cactus Patchers meeting or print one from the Arizona Quilt Guild website. You can also join AQG online!
