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!
Our Next Meeting: Our October 5 guild meeting will be via Zoom. Our program is Show and Tell. Kelly Willey will be our speaker at our November 2 Zoom guild meeting.
