To all quilters who have extended your thoughts, prayers, and stash to the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild, your response has been truly inspiring, but your compassion and generosity are far exceeding our storage space. If you have sent us a donation or it is ready to go into the mail, we thank you.

If you are still organizing a donation with your friends or guild, please save it and use it locally!

The volume of donations has become a bit overwhelming, and we need time to process. 

We are so grateful for the outreach by the quilting communities in California and throughout the world to help us recover from the effects of the fires in Sonoma County. Your heart and generosity are a perfect expression of what we quilters do. 

We are still happy to accept completed quilts, tops and pillow cases. They should be sent to:

Janet Tonkin; 634 Madrone Ct.; Santa Rosa, CA 95409.

We are Sonoma County Strong, and we have many, many quilts to make to bring comfort to those who have lost so much. 

Thank you. 

Our Guild is dedicated to preserving this country's quilting heritage through the education and enhancement of quilt-making skills. Our members have a love of quilting and all things quilt-related and welcome those who have similar interests. Since 1976 has increased from a small group of founding members to 280 and still growing!

 The Santa Rosa Quilt Guild creates an opportunity quilt every year which is raffled to generate operating funds that support the guild and its community outreach. Tickets are available during guild meetings and at various functions throughout the year, such as the Sonoma County Fair and the Moonlight Quilters of Sonoma County Wine Country Quilt Show.
