About Us

Piecing Partners Quilt Guild was formed in 1984 by a small group of quilt enthusiasts who met in homes to share quilting knowledge and friendship.  We have grown to over 200 members, and have monthly meetings to promote and exchange ideas on quilts
and quilting in our community.
PPQG offers something for everyone – whether you are a
beginner, or an experienced quilter; drawn to art-style, or
traditional quilting.  At our meetings you will find like-
minded quilters in a friendly atmosphere where we learn
together and share our love for quilting.  Our desire is to
educate others and preserve the rich heritage of quilting
– and to hopefully enlarge the quilting community.

Among the many benefits of membership are: the oppor-
tunity to hear lectures and see trunk show presentations
by nationally known quilters, the opportunity to sign up for
classes at very reasonable prices, be inspired by seeing the projects of other members, gain self-fulfillment from working on charity projects, and best of all, camaraderie with others who share your interest.

Holiday Party:  The November general meeting is traditionally a party get-together where advance reservations are required. It includes a short business meeting, election of officers for the upcoming year, raffle quilt drawing, and plenty of social time. The format and theme of the holiday party varies from year to year.

Hospitality:  Once or twice a year, each member of Piecing Partners is asked to bring a snack to serve approximately 20 people or one large bottled beverage such as juice or soda.

In-House Raffle:  Small quilts or quilted related items are donated and raffled at each monthly meeting.

Library:  We maintain a library of books and other items which can be checked out by members for two months at a time.  For more information, go here.

Raffle Quilt:  A quilt is made by guild members each year and raffled off.  The funds raised are a major source of income to offset the costs of programs.  See more here.
