Welcome to the Valley of the Mist Quilters Guild web page.
Whether you are a seasoned quilter, new to quilting, or just curious; welcome to our world of quilting!
Valley of the Mist Quilters’ Guild is a non-profit charitable, education and social organization. We promote the knowledge of and appreciation for all aspects of quilting and fiber arts. The exchange of ideas is encouraged in an atmosphere of friendship and fellowship. We are a giving organization with an active philanthropy group that makes quilts for those in need. From the proceeds of our annual quilt auction, we support selected local charities with monetary donations.
We feature nationally recognized speakers from all over the nation to share their expertise and inspire us to new levels of creativity at our monthly meetings. These inspiring and talented professional quilters also provide us with a hands-on learning experience during our monthly workshops where we learn new techniques, and tips and tricks of the trade. We work on projects designed by our speakers and everyone agrees this is one of the best membership benefits of our guild.
We have many wonderful things to experience and participate in at our meetings such as our monthly mini quilt and merchandise raffles, block of the month and charm square exchange, philanthropy projects, extensive library of quilting books for checkout, refreshments and door prizes. Our members love quilting and love sharing their work during our “show and tell” at every meeting. It’s always the highlight of our meetings as we inspire each other by sharing our latest quilting or sewing projects.
We just completed our 25th anniversary year and celebrated in great style with lots of fun and a birthday bash in September 2015. We also completed our 17th year of our Temecula Outdoor Quilt Show. Our show is the first Saturday in October every year and we adorn the buildings of Old Town Temecula with an array of members’ quilts. The event includes a large quilt auction and a small quilt silent auction as well as a quilting vendor area. Quilts and shopping…it’s a day of pure quilting joy!
Other annual activities include a Brown Bag rummage sale, mystery or challenge quilt competitions, quilters’ university with member professors and our holiday gift exchange party. We encourage non-members to attend our meetings and workshops so come check us out. We have friendly Ambassadors ready to great you at the door and familiarize you with our guild and our activities. Our meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of each month beginning at 6:45 pm with our social time staring at 6:15 pm.
