Welcome to the Evergreen Piecemakers Quilt Guild


Founding

The Evergreen Piecemakers Quilt Guild was formed almost 30 years ago on a hot summer’s day in an apple orchard in Kent, Washington. The “founding mothers” outgrew the original meeting place and chose the First Christian Church, 11717 SE 240th, Kent, Washington 98031 Our meetings take place the 2nd and 4th Mondays at 7 p.m. Please join us.
Mission Statement  Evergreen Piecemakers Quilt Guild’s goal is to promote the art of quilting and quiltmaking through workshops, lectures and exhibitions offered to members and the general public. We will work to preserve the heritage of quiltmaking and quilt appreciation. We provide an informational base for those interested in quiltmaking and related art, and encourage excellence in those while providing a source of inspiration and fellowship for quilt enthusiasts. We strive to enrich our lives by the commitments of donations related to quilts and other fiber arts (i.e. quilts, scholarships, time and efforts) to deserving organizations, hospitals, groups or individuals.
Meetings  The second Monday of each month is a business meeting with Show & Tell afterwards. The fourth Monday of the month is our program night. It could involve a speaker who either shows us the quilts she or he has made, or a slide show. Other program nights include hands-on activities. Twice a year the Guild has potluck dinners, summer time and at Christmas. Our meetings begin at 7 p.m. We meet at the First Christian Church, 11707 SE 240th Ave. Kent, WA 98031 Directions: From Hwy 167 going south, take the Hwy 516 exit, turn left onto Des Moines Road. turn left on Central Ave., turn right onto James Street which becomes 240th Ave. Continue on 240th Ave. until you reach the intersection of 116th SE, go thru the intersection and make a right turn int0 the First Christian Church parking lot.
