I thought you would have had to declare your status to get the EIN, but I've not been a part of that process.

You sound like a 501(c)(7) organization, which is a social club. See http://www.irs.gov/Charities-&-Non-Profits/Other-Non-Pro... for info from the IRS.

I used to be Treasurer for a local quilt guild, and we fell under those rules.

You definitely have to file taxes http://www.irs.gov/Charities-&-Non-Profits/Other-Non-Pro... and would file a Form 990 which is fairly easy and fast if you're small and don't have much in the way of receipts.

As Treasurer, you most certainly have responsibilities, and I'd start by reading the IRS website, which is very user-friendly.
