About Us

We appreciate your interest in Pioneer Quilters Guild.

Our membership is limited to 175 with a waiting list for prospective members as needed. We are currently not at our maximum of 175.  Members are expected to support the activities of the Guild by voluntary service to the Guild, such as participation in fund-raising activities, serving on committees, assisting in community service projects, and attending a minimum of  5 meetings per year. If you are interested in becoming a member of our family, please contact our membership chair,  Shirley Beckmeyer.

We meet at 7pm on the first Monday of each month at the Shepherd of the Sierra Presbyterian Church on Barton Road in  Loomis.

Because of “first Monday” holidays we have no meeting in July, and our September meeting is actually the last Monday in August. We snack and socialize beginning at about 6:30 pm and our meeting starts at 7:00.

Our guild is governed by a set of Bylaws and Policies and Procedures.

All of our activities are carried out by volunteers.  We have job descriptions for most of our positions.

We publish a newsletter 11 month in the year and accept paid advertising.  Here is more information about our Newsletter and requirements for input and advertising.

Pioneer Quilters’ Guild has been a long established non-profit organization since 1989, and its purpose was to contribute to the growth and knowledge of quilting techniques, patterns, and the history of quilt making.

During a portion of our monthly general meetings, members have an opportunity to participate in sharing their various “works in progress projects” or finished quilts in a Show and Tell moment. Please browse through the gallery which archives photos two years back.


We are always looking for stories & pictures from the past from our guild members to add to our history. If you have something you would like to share, please contact them.
