Quilterly Greetings from

The Santa Rosa Quilt Guild

The Santa Rosa Quilt 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 our membership has increased from a small group of founding members to over 260 and still growing!  

Meetings for the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild are usually the first and third Thursday of the month.

We meet at:

THE VETERANS MEMORIAL BUILDING
1351 MAPLE AVE.
SANTA ROSA, CA, 95404.

Meetings start at 10:00 unless otherwise noted.

Most meetings are live and in-person, as well as available on Zoom.

Some speaker meetings are available on Zoom only.

Be sure to check the calendar below to determine if the meeting is in-person or not.

Scroll down to see the current year calendar of activities.

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. 

The opportunity quilt for 2023-24 is called "The Mountains Are Calling." View our Opportunity Quilt page to learn more.

To learn more about what we offer, and how you can become a member, visit our About Us page.

Several quilt-related businesses are members of the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild and many offer discounts. To see a list, click here.
