Welcome to Amador Valley Quilters!
Our guild began on Valentine’s Day in 1981 with 14 women filled with excitement and curiosity about what they could do. They put their hearts and souls into making quilts to give to charitable organizations. While our membership has grown to almost 400 members, we still follow the original 14 by putting our hearts and souls into giving over 900 quilts every year to charities and participating in various outreach programs.
We are proud to present a wide variety of nationally recognized quilt teachers to speak at our meetings and to challenge us in workshops. We have “friendship groups” to fit everyone’s interests, from hand appliqué to free motion quilting and just about everything in between, not to mention the most important part: friendship!
Everyone is welcome to join us the second Saturday of the month and hopefully soon you too will be excited to say you are a member of Amador Valley Quilters. Make sure you stop by and say hello when you visit. I look forward to meeting you.
