The Mother Lode Quilters Guild (MLQG) was formed in 2003 to "preserve and continue the traditions, culture, and history of quilting." The guild holds general meetings once a month in Sutter Creek, a quaint town on Historical Highway 49 in the Mother Lode area of Northern California.
Our goal is to promote friendship among those interested in quilting, and increase their knowledge and appreciation of quilts. To this end, the guild offers educational programs and workshops with local and nationally known quilting teachers, and puts on a quilt show every two years. Most of our functions are held in the evenings or on weekends to accommodate working members.
We welcome every person interested in the art of quilting, and encourage the artistic expression of every member of our guild. If you are new to the area or just visiting, stop by and visit our quilting guild in Amador County.
The MLQG is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. The guild welcomes donations of quilting fabric and materials. These donations may be tax deductible, consult your tax advisor for information.
Instead of a speaker at our May meeting, we will be working on some charm squares and fat quarters for the Country Store at our October 1 - 2, 2016 Golden Threads Quilt Show.
