The goal of Pacific Piecemakers Quilt Guild (PPQG) is to promote quilting along the Sonoma / Mendocino coast. PPQG offers monthly educational programs, lectures and workshops for quilters of all skill levels as well as opportunities for members to give back to their community using those skills.
Monthly meetings feature programs to inspire quilters in all aspects of quilting ranging from traditional to contemporary art quilt techniques and development of textile and wearable art.
