Name Badge: The Anvil Block is the official logo of the guild, representing the history of Saugus as the site of the first ironworks in America and the location of the Saugus Ironworks National Historic Site. Below is the link for directions on how to make your own Anvil Block nametag to wear to guild meetings.

Pillowcase Pattern: The guild encourages quilting and sewing for various charitable causes. Directions for a suggested quilt pattern are on our Tips and Hints page, but any quilt in any size, pattern or technique is welcome and will comfort some recipient. We regularly make pillowcases for various organizations, including the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, the Department of Children and Families, and the Home for Little Wanderers. Our pillowcases for DCF are made for the December holidays and are stuffed with various age-appropriate toys, school supplies, and necessities. You may make a pillowcase for this project using winter or Christmas fabrics. One file below contains instructions which include a decorative flange between the case’s cuff and body, the other contains instructions without the decorative flange.
