Education

The Westside Quilters Guild is committed to promoting the art of quilting, both traditional and modern, as well as providing education to the community on the history and artistry of quilting.  Upon request, we can provide presentations as well as hands-on activities to groups interested in learning about the evolution and art of quilting.  Our goal is to reach out to the community in the spirit of sharing the art of quilting.

Presentations currently available:

  • History of Quilting
  • The Quilt Barn Trail of Oregon’s Washington County

Recent educational activities have included:

  • Quilt displays in the North Plains library.  Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the library is not currently open to the public. Once the library resumes regular hours, our members will once again display quilts in the library.
  • After school activities with older elementary girls in the Adelante Chicas program in Hillsboro and Cornelius.  We will be doing an event with them on April 11 and April 28. Contact our education group if you are interested in participating – WQGVPEduc@gmail.com. It is great fun!
  • Display of modern quilts created by WQG members at the Hillsboro Civic Center.
