2015 Opportunity Quilt

2015 Opportunity Quilt "Friendships 'n Fabric"

 

 

Welcome

The Gold Bug Quilters Guild of El Dorado County represents quilters of all ages and interests in the art of quilting and fabric art.  We believe that the best way to contribute to the growth and knowledge of quilting is through education and fellowship.  We hold meetings each month at which time we share techniques, designs, and projects (complete or not). The Gold Bug Quilters also use their talents for community service projects such as creating comfort quilts that are donated to such organizations as the Senior Center, Child Protective Services and Family Connections, Foster Families Service and Foster Families and Infant Development Center.

Gold Bug Quilters was started in July of 1987 with 12 members.  The name was chosen to represent our Gold Rush heritage.

We encourage visitors to join us at one of our meetings for an experience in the world of Quilting Arts. 


Note: The 2015 Guild Quilt Show will be held at the Cameron Park Community Center again this year.  The dates  are Sept 11-14, 2015.  Mark your calendars for a fabulous show.

Check out the Monthly Program Page for the exciting special speakers we have scheduled for the next few months.

Snuggle Quilt Workshops are 10 am to 3 pm at the Foothills United Methodist Church at 3301 Green Valley Road, Rescue, CA. Contact the guild at goldbugquilters@gmail.com for the date of the next workshop.
