The Pioneer Quilters Guild is a non-profit organization dedicated to the growth and knowledge of quilting techniques, patterns and the history of quilt making. We meet monthly, eleven months a year. We share ideas, learn from speakers and each other, work on community service projects, enjoy camp, and showcase our work in our annual quilt show. We invite you to join us!

We offer our members opportunities to get together- or get away - with two 6-day retreats at the Mt. Hope Conference Center near Forbestown, CA and two 4-day daytime retreats at the Veterans Hall in Lincoln. We have a wonderful quilt show in November where members can not only display their quilts, but have the opportunity to sell quilts at our Quilt Sale or offer handmade items in our Boutique. We're very involved in Community Service and as a guild, make and donate hundreds of quilts, pillowcases, stockings, and placemats each year to local organizations. At our monthly meetings we learn from speakers and each other.
During the Pandemic
As with everyone, many of our activities had to be canceled in 2020 and early 2021 including camps, retreats, and our quilt show. We are, however, holding monthly guild meetings via Zoom, are continuing with our Community Service activities (in our own homes), reveled in the unveiling of our Tea Towel Transformation Challenge, and completed our special Coronavirus Mystery Quilts. Many of our members have been continuing our Coffee Klatches and TEA-riffic Ladies gatherings outdoors in parks or parking lots. We are continuing to stay connected.
