Welcome Quilting Friends!

The Pella Area Quilters Guild, Inc. is a friendly, talented non-profit organization of interested quilters in Pella and the surrounding communities who have been sharing quilts, talent, friendship and knowledge since 1985. Our purpose is to promote the appreciation of the heritage and art of quilts by educating our members through instruction and mutual support. There are monthly meetings, most of them with announcements, special speakers, show & tell, and refreshments. We have an annual quilt show, which is a feature of Pella’s Tulip Time Festival. There are two retreats per year, charity sew days, annual president's quilt challenge, and emphasize throughout the year making quilts to give to charitable causes. There's also a library that holds an assortment of books, rulers and other materials for our members. If you are interested in quilting, please join us!

2017  Theme: The Earth Around Us
The Earth is our home, providing everything we need, and often inspiring us in our creative endeavors. It's an ever changing picture from day-to-day and season-to-season. This year i hope to explore how what we see around us can spark ideas and influence our quilting choices, and how actions we take as quilters can affect the world around us. 

Please note that if Pella Community Schools are cancelled for the day due to weather, our meeting will also be cancelled!
