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!
2015 OPPORTUNITY QUILT
Our 2015 Opportunity quilt, “Women’s Voices,” was made from Civil War reproduction fabrics based on a Civil War blog by Barbara Brackman in 2013. It was sewn by Halli Tucker, Billie Sanderson, and Barbara Bickford and beautifully quilted by Lana LaPlante. The quilt measures 69”X79."
We will sell tickets throughout 2015 and draw the winning tic”ket at our December 7 guild meeting.
The password changes each year. If you don’t remember the password, contact the president or the webmaster.
The Members only section includes past newsletters, guild roster, listing of officers and board members, and slide shows of our “virtual sewing room tours” from August 2012. Everything else is available without going into the Members Only section.

This year, six of our meetings will feature locally- and nationally-known program speakers, who also teach workshops for our members and guests. In addition, we have other interesting programs... More...
We want to keep the guild relatively small, so membership is limited to 150. We have a waiting list, and we accept new members in January. We welcome guests to our meetings, classes and many of our activities.
