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 for quite awhile now. We are now entering our 31st year. There are monthly meetings, most of them with special speakers, quilt related activities, show and tell, etc. 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, see 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!

August Meeting: JJ Jensen

Guild meeting: Thursday, August 2nd, 6:30 pm at the Masonic Family Center.

This month's guest will be JJ Jensen, who is bringing a trunk show of her work, called "How do You Mend a Broken Heart?"  She has extensive experience in the quilting world and has owned quilt shops.

We will also be conducting a lot of guild business, as it is the end of our year.  There will be officer elections and new spots for committee members.

JJ will also be teaching a workshop on Friday (which is full!  Waiting list only!) where we will learn to use our sewing machines' fancy stitches.  It looks to be a lot of fun!

June Meeting: Community Service Night!

Our June meeting will be on Thursday, June 7 at 6pm!  We're starting early because it's the annual Community Service Sewing Night and we'll want plenty of time for producing quilts and everything else.  There will be projects for you to work on, or the small groups have planned projects, or you can bring your own.  The VPs will be there to help you find a place.

Here's one part of what your service sewing does: our Community Service team just presented over 30 quilts to Butte County Independent Living to help graduating foster kids get established.
