About Us

The guild is open to anyone interested in the art of quilt making. Our members represent broad interests in different types of quilt making and offer a vast array of talents and skill levels. Whether you have yet to make your first quilt, or you are an accomplished award-winning expert, you are welcome to join.  Yearly dues are $20.00.


The first meeting of the Santa Rosa Quilters’ Guild took place October 10, 2002.  The meeting was presided over by Barbara Warriner. Those in attendance at this first meeting were Barbara Warriner, Anita Heady, Simone Pelley, Ann Root, Verona Ellis, Betty Brooks, and Joyce Karlson.

One of the sentiments, as expressed in an early copy of the Guild’s minutes was, “Keep it Simple.” Charter members and others that followed have had the desire to keep the Guild friendly and accessible to all who have an interest in any aspect of quilts or quilting. 

The founding and current members have expressed a desire for the guild to be a loosely formed gathering with a sense of togetherness and camaraderie. From the early days of the Guild, there has always been a commitment to sharing, from the teaching of quilting techniques to the gifts of quilts to charities.

Community Involvement

With our commitment to Share,
guild members donate their time and expertise to create quilts for community charitable organizations.


To further our commitment to Create and Educate the monthly programs offer learning and inspiring opportunities to help members improve their quilting skills.  Many of the programs are taught by local area instructors and our own members.
