Westside 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.

Our Mission:
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 , we are planning some exciting virtual programs which will be announced very soon.

masksWe 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.
