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!

Our guest speaker will be Sherry Werum, from Woodland.   Sherry has lived in Woodland since 1972, and made her first quilt in 1973.  She has won first place and Best of Show awards in shows at the local and state level.  Sherry specializes in mosaic quilt designs, which are spectacular, and she has also done extensive work in Art Nouveau and Art Deco.  It should be a fascinating lecture!

Opportunities to Help

A news update from our community service committee:

In the wake of the horrific destruction in all the communities involved in the Camp fire we once again are organizing the Comfort Quilt Project to support guild members and others affected by this disaster. There are two sessions scheduled:

Tuesday, November 27 – Friday, November 30, 9am to 5pm at Ord Bend Community Center.  Yes, that's four days of sewing!  The last day will be a potluck.

Tuesday, December 4, 9am – 6pm at Honey Run Quilters.

There will be quilt kits and extra fabric available. We want to know how many will be able to attend in order to have sufficient supplies available, so please contact Millie Lofgren or Sally Senestraro by email or phone.

Bring sewing machines and supplies, cushions for chairs, and your lunch. 

Honey Run has also offered their classroom for a Community Sew Day: November 15 - 17 from 9:30am to 5:30pm to make pillowcases and quilts.

ASQG has invited the members of the Ridge Quilters Guild to our December potluck meeting, and made them all members of ASQG.  We hope the Ridge Quilters will be able to join us for a delicious and friendly dinner, and we're more than pleased to welcome them to our guild as we work together on recovery efforts.
