The Oak Island Beach Quilters is a sociable, friendly group that welcomes members from novice to expert, visitors and vacationers alike. The group meets every Wednesday at 10:15 AM with a business meeting on the first Wednesday of each month. The other Wednesdays are quilting days where new techniques are presented, charity quilting is done, classes are held or you have the opportunity to work on an individual or group project. The group has a wide range of talent where there is always someone who can share their expertise with other quilters and teach novice quilters the art and joy of quilting. The group maintains a lending library of quilting books and DVDs which members can borrow at any time. Every year there is a quilting challenge that involves a theme, a particular color, fabric or shape or a combination of these. Challenge entries are displayed at Franklin Square Gallery in Southport, where visitors can vote for their favorites. The group spends one Wednesday a month working on charity quilts. Organizations supported by the group include: Habitat for Humanity, Wounded Warriors, Hope Harbor Home, New Hope Clinic, the Intensive Care Nursery at Brunswick Hospital, Dosher Hospital and other resources in the community that provide aid to those in need.
