Quilters is open to all traditional, contemporary and art quilters of
any age, from beginner to expert. Lecture presentations, workshops and
field trips are held throughout the year.
A new kind of quilt guild organized for educational
and charitable purposes; to promote cooperation and the exchange of ideas
among quilters; to instruct members in methods and techniques of traditional
and contemporary creative quilting; to serve mini-groups and their philanthropic
endeavors within the community; to inspire personal achievement.
For the time being, according to the Los Angeles County Board of Public Health and the directions of the CDC during the Covid-19 pandemic, our in person meetings and workshops are suspended. We continue to monitor the situation and in case of significant changes we will re-evaluate and let you know accordingly.
In the meantime, until we can all be together in person , all of our programming will be provided virtually over Zoom.
We would like to remind everyone to be responsible towards their own and others’ health. Follow the hygiene and travel guidelines and remain vigilant to your wellbeing. Consult your healthcare provider immediately if you feel unwell. We'll get through this together.
Membership renewals are coming up!
