Our Mission, History, & Vision
The Umpqua Valley Quilters Guild (UVQG) was first established in 1982. A small group of ladies just wanted to get together for a “little quilting.” The ladies came together to quilt, share projects, and new quilting techniques and assembly methods. Soon, shopping excursions to fabric stores, adventures to quilt shows and the JOY of Quilting grew. And so did the guild. By the year 2000, the guild branched out and added an evening group to accommodate the schedules of the quilter with daytime obligations. UVQG now has over 100 members.
UVQG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which supports a number of local charities and organization through the gifting of quilts and other crafted items. Members elect leaders who plan and facilitate the activities of the guild.
The purpose of the UVQG is to promote the joy of quilting as a creative expression and an art form. The meetings are a time set aside to learn more about the history of quilting, explore new quilting techniques, and share the joy of quilt making with the community.
The guild is a non-profit, organization. The members elect leaders who plan and facilitate the activities of the guild.
