The Pioneer Quilters Guild proudly hosts a premier Quilt Show each year that features a fantastic display of gorgeous quilts of various techniques, sizes, and designs made by our talented members as well as a designated area that offers quilts for sale to the public. We have a wonderful and unique boutique that sells quality handmade crafts of all sorts. Shop early as we are very well known in the community! Our exciting raffle baskets generate a lot of interest. There are door prizes given throughout the day, vendor shops to offer all that is new to quilting and more, and a catered café by Ambrosia Fine Foods offering an array of delicious fare for everyone.
