Members and friends, welcome to our website! We are a vibrant, friendly and varied group of almost 200 quilters and quilt artists who have been sharing quilts, talent and camaraderie since 1981. There are monthly meetings, most of them with special speakers, quilt related activities, and show and tell. We have quilt shows every other year, and lots of quilt-ins, challenges, round robins, and community service projects, along with an impressive library for our members - something for everyone! As you navigate this website, you will see some of our work, check out our schedule, and share our accomplishments. If you are interested in quilting, please join us the first Thursday of the month for our Guild Meeting. We love to meet visitors and will make you feel at home!

April Meeting: Lisa McKissick

The April meeting will be held at the Masonic Family Center at 7:00pm on Thursday, April 4th.  Doors open at 6:30.

Our speaker will be Lisa McKissick, owner of Cosmopolitan Quilt Company.   She is from Petaluma and taught computer science before moving into a career as a quilting instructor (you'll find her at a shop in Sonoma).  Lisa says her mission is to teach as many people to quilt in her lifetime.  She comes from a family of quilters and all three of her own children quilt too. 

Lisa will be giving a presentation titled "Around the Cutting Table," which sounds like a lot of fun.



April's workshop will be a beautiful Jaybird pattern, Glimmer, taught by Lisa McKissick.  This can be made in several sizes and makes a great center or the beginning of a medallion quilt.  The workshop is on April 5th from 10 - 4 at Honey Run Quilters.  Arrive at 9:30 to start setting up.  Cost is $45 for members and $50 for non-members.  Purchase the pattern at Honey Run, online, or at the meeting Thursday.
