2017 Opportunity Quilt

2017 Opportunity Quilt "Shadow Dance"




The Gold Bug Quilters Guild of El Dorado County represents quilters of all ages and interests in the art of quilting and fabric art.  We believe that the best way to contribute to the growth and knowledge of quilting is through education and fellowship.  We hold meetings each month at which time we share techniques, designs, and projects (complete or not). The Gold Bug Quilters also use their talents for community service projects such as creating comfort quilts that are donated to such organizations as the Senior Center, Child Protective Services and Family Connections, Foster Families Service and Foster Families and Infant Development Center.

Gold Bug Quilters was started in July of 1987 with 12 members.  The name was chosen to represent our Gold Rush heritage.

We encourage visitors to join us at one of our meetings for an experience in the world of Quilting Arts. 

Our meetings are held the 4th Tuesday of the month at the Seventh Day Adventist Church, 6831 Mother Lode Drive, Placerville, California. The doors open at 6:30pm and the meeting starts at 7:00pm.  The meeting is open to members and visitors.  The program consists of a brief information time, a special program, refreshments, "show and tell", and drawings for "pot of gold", birthdays, fabric basket, and "block of the month".  There is a fee of $4.00 per meeting for non-guild members.
