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 most of our meetings and workshops are being held over Zoom, but in 2023 we are planning some in-person meetings and workshops. In the meantime 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.
