Pella Area Quilters Guild

Welcome Quilting Friends!

The Pella Area Quilter's Guild is a group of dynamic people promoting an appreciation of the heritage and art of quilts by educating its members through instruction and mutual support, presenting quilts to the public and providing quilts to charitable causes.

Membership in the PAQG is open to anyone interested in quilts. The quilt members represent a wide array of styles (modern to traditional), quilting and piecing experience from beginners to professional quilters and fiber artists. Find more membership information here.
