About the Sierra Mountain Quilters Association

From the “Newly Hatched” workshop, taught by Karen Brow-Meier.

The Sierra Mountain Quilters Association was founded in 1980. A love of quilting was the only requirement for membership then and still holds true today. The group meets on the first Thursday of every month. Meetings are held at 6 p.m. at the Oakhurst Community Center. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Activities at these meetings may include a guest speaker, workshop, technique demonstrations, slides or videos, as well as “Sew-n-Tell.” Click here for more information about their programs.

Annual dues are $25.00. Visitors are always welcome.

In addition to monthly meetings, “circles” have been formed. These meetings are usually held at different places of the members choosing and host various projects. The guild also hosts a biennial Quilt Show. Other activities include making Community quilts and cuddle quilts and displaying member’s quilts at local locations.

Here is a list of definitions for the buzz words that quilters throw around so easily.

A monthly newsletter will be e-mailed to each member, unless a hard copy has been requested.  Articles of interest along with the monthly activities schedule, news and current events are posted to keep members informed. The newsletters may also be downloaded from the site under the newsletter link.
