All in-person meetings are currently canceled due to the "Shelter in Place" order.

THE SANTA ROSA QUILT GUILD MEETS AT:
THE VETERANS MEMORIAL BUILDING
1351 MAPLE AVE.
SANTA ROSA, CA, 95404.
MEETINGS START AT 10:00 UNLESS NOTED OTHERWISE.

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!  

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 and the Moonlight Quilters of Sonoma County Wine Country Quilt Show. 

The opportunity quilt for 2021-22 is called Fiesta. View our Opportunity Quilt page to learn more.
