Note: For all AVQ events, please see our event calendar.

December Holiday Tea 

The annual Holiday Tea will be held on December 9th, 10:00 am to noon. The tea
will be held at the Hearst Elementary School auditorium right next door to our monthly
meeting. (Same location as last year)
Community Quilts will have speakers from the community that receives AVQ’s Community Quilts.  We will also be treated to our annual quilt parade. Bring a friend and a dish to share. Your favorite brunch item is a great choice. The Guild will provide the beverages. As always, the meeting is free for guests.



President’s Welcome:

Amador Valley Quilters (AVQ) is a creative group of people who like to explore all aspects of the quilting world. There’s something for everyone in this guild, from traditional to art quilting, handwork or machine, and every combination you can imagine.

The Gallery will give you a taste of the quilts and garments we make. The Events calendar lists what’s happening when. Enjoy one of our Second Saturday General Meetings at the Pleasanton Middle School on Case Avenue. Our meetings start at 1:30 p.m., but come early so you can check out the tables where members can take some books out of the Library, sign up for a workshop, and maybe pick up a community quilt or a Block of the Month to work on.

Some of the Outreach Programs AVQ sponsors are:

  • Budding Beginners at the annual Alden Lane “Quilting in the Garden” quilt show
  • “Quilting Then and Now” events at the Alviso Adobe Museum
  • Quilts of Valor donations to area veterans
  • Donations of quilts to local non-profits serving children and families

We welcome quilters of all skill levels, from barely beginning to professional, and of course we love to have those who just like to admire the beauty of fabric and thread. Hope to see you soon!
