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!
2014 OPPORTUNITY QUILT
Our 2014 Opportunity quilt, “Celestial Garden,” is adapted from the pattern,“Lucky Stars” by Linda Jenkins and Becky Goldsmith of “Piece O’ Cake Designs.” The project was coordinated by Diana Meier and Valerie Price.
The beautiful applique was done by Lana LaPlante, Diana Meier, Marcia Petroni, and Sylvia Zeng; the complicated piecing was accomplished by Dorothy Bennett, Linda Cherry, Wendy Ellinger, Barbara Jonas, Claire Norton, Judy Osa, Valerie Price , Sally Vandervort, and JeriLyn Wells; it was quilted by Lin Squires of Lin’s Longarm Quilting. We will sell tickets throughout 2014 and draw the winning ticket at our December 1 guild meeting.
The password changes each year. If you don’t remember the password, contact the president or the webmaster.

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.
