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!
