This guild is a non-profit philanthropic organization whose purpose is to promote cooperation and exchange of ideas among those interested in quilting. We encourage and instruct members in methods and techniques of quilting. Our meetings are held the third Monday of each month at 6pm at Community Church by the Lake in the Mary Johnson Center, 40946 Big Bear Blvd., Big Bear Lake, Ca 92315.
Our Philanthropic donations have gone to the Doves, Mom & Dad Project, Historical Society, Discovery Center, Lutheran Services and Big Bear Lake Community Church Pantry.
