Bay Heritage Quilters Guild

Quilters.jpgFounded in 1988 the Bay Heritage Quilters Guild was formed to promote the art of quilting through sharing, teaching and friendship.  As a group they provide demonstrations, do several community service projects, exchange ideas and provide an atmosphere in which members can learn from experienced quilters.  In addition, they hold a biennial quilt show of guild member quilts as well as quilts submitted by people from around the area and the state.  The friendships that form within the group cross generational lines and connect the members of today to those who have come before.
