The Valley Quilters' Guild, Inc. was formed in 1985 to promote quilting in the Matanuska Valley. We currently have a membership of over 200.
Our main objectives are service to our community and the education of quilters. We serve the community by donating quilts to organizations and groups that approach us with their needs. Our members also let us know of needs in the community. We also give quilts to the victims of fires, child abuse, and State Troopers for comforting of domestic violence.
Sign up for a committee and continue or increase your involvement in the guild.
Valley Quilters Guild General Membership meetings are held at the Palmer Railroad Depot on the FIRST THURSDAY of EVERY MONTH @ 7 PM with social hour begining at 6:30, unless otherwise noted. Most meetings last approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hrs, depending on the program and how many show and tell projects are shown! Each meeting includes a fat quarter and Block of the Month drawings for paid members only.
