Who we are and what we do
The goal of Pacific Piecemakers Quilt Guild is to promote quilting along the Sonoma/Mendocino coast. PPQG offers monthly educational programs, lectures, and workshops for quilters of all skill levels as well as opportunities for members to give back to their community using those skills.
Monthly meetings feature programs to inspire quilters in all aspects of quilting ranging from traditional to contemporary art quilt techniques and development of textile and wearable art. Lectures and workshops are presented by world famous quilters as well as our local talent. PPQG also coordinates several quilt shows and quilt challenges in the community.
“Comfort quilts” are made by members and distributed to a variety of local assistance organizations as a means of service back to our community. Additionally, PPQG makes a quilt to be raffled at Art in the Redwoods as a fund raiser for the Gualala Arts Scholarship Fund.
Regular meetings are held on the third Friday of the month at 12:30 PM at Gualala Arts. Meetings are open to anyone who enjoys quilts or quilting or who would like to learn more. Newcomers and visitors are always welcome; there is a $5 charge for non-members. New members can join at any time for a $40 per year membership fee (prorated August through December.) Print and fill out the Membership Application and send it, along with your check made out to PPQG to PPQG Membership, c/o Gualala Arts Center, PO Box 244, Gualala, CA 95445.
