Founded in 1979 with a mission statement "To promote the fellowship and art of quilting", we have grown from the original 6 members to over 100.
In 1992 we became a 501c non-profit to help us with that mission.
Our monthly meetings showcase a special speaker or program along with "Sew & Share" by our members and guests.
" Quilts and Fiber Arts 2016" is our bi-annual show that draws quilters, fiber artists,vendors and visitors from across the country.
Our annual retreat is for members to get together to work on individual projects and reinforce friendships.
Our membership is also very active in several community outreach programs.
We look forward to seeing you very soon.
