Membership

Diane Keeports, Donna Monteith, and Annette Kocsis, Chairs

We have FUN at our meetings—because when good friends get together, wonderful things happen.

  • Our membership is open to everyone who enjoys and loves applique; and we welcome you to come, visit, and spend some time with us.
  • We gladly welcome our guests to attend two meetings before joining.
  • Our guild operates year round, August – July.
  • The yearly membership dues are $35, due in August of each year, and are pro-rated if you join March – May.
  • To download the Membership Form, click here.
  • Our membership extends to the farthest boundaries of Tampa Bay, with Feather Princesses coming from Duval, Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, and Sarasota counties to regularly attend our meetings and other guild activities. Plus we have several members who reside in other states.

Because of our diversity and broad range of appliqué interests and knowledge, talents, and skills, we get together each month not only at our wonderful guild meeting, but at four different quilt circles, ten specialty appliqué groups, one hand quilting group, and one quilt study group.

We are so grateful for each other and the love that permeates our group; and we keep our feet firmly planted, seeking appliqué opportunities wherever they may be found.

Membership Renewal: 2020-21

As we begin our membership renewal process this month–May 2020:

  • You may renew your Feather Princesses membership dues (for 2020-2021) by mail any time now through mid-August.
  • The deadline to renew your membership is Wednesday, August 12, 2020 (the second Wednesday, as usual).
  • The Feather Princesses who pay their dues by this date will be included in our 2020-2021 Membership Directory, which we will distribute during the Fall.

Cost of the dues for the year 2020-2021:

  • The membership dues for our current Feather Princesses members will be $17.50.
  • The membership dues for our lovely Lifetime members (90 + years young) will still be FREE.
  • The membership dues for new members who join the Feather Princesses for the first time will be the regular price of $35.

To pay dues to renew your membership, PLEASE: Write a check payable to The Feather Princesses, and write “Dues” on the Memo Line of the check.

If you plan to attend our 2020 Lake Yale Retreat, PLEASE DO NOT combine your Retreat payment in this check. PLEASE write a separate check to pay to attend the Retreat. You may of course mail both checks in the same envelope.

  • If any of your personal information has changed since we met in March, access the Members Only section of our Feather Princesses website or click the link below, print and complete the Membership Form, and mail it along with your dues check;   -OR-
  • Just mail your membership dues check to our lovely Treasurer: Betty Jo Lecaroz, 3322 Nakora Drive, Tampa, Florida 33618

Please NOTE:

  • If the “shelter in place” and “social distancing” mandates lift prior to August 12 and our guild meetings resume, you may of course pay your membership dues at the guild meeting.
  • If the “shelter in place” and “social distancing” mandates are still in place for our new year (August 2020 – July 2021) and we still are unable to meet; then the dues will be applied to the following year, August 2021 – July 2022.

We hope you all will like this modified pricing strategy for our exciting new year of appliqué. Our distinguished officers, Princesses Janet, B. J., and Betty Jo, thought of this wonderful idea; be sure to send a note of thanks to them.
