WMQG Mission Statement

 

Let us Introduce ourselves…

The Wallowa Mountain Quilters’ Guild like a pieced quilt is comprised of a patchwork of individuals mostly living in the beautiful Wallowa Valley of Eastern Oregon. Our skills range from master craftsmen/women to novices. We are joined together around our love of color, texture, and design using fabrics, threads, and warm batting. The guild friendship sandwich formed among members warms our hearts and supports our lives as the quilts donated warm the community members’ bodies and souls. (More)

WMQG Mission Statement

The Wallowa Mountain Quilters' Guild was formed in 1991 by a small group of local quilters whose love for quilting prompted them to form a local organization with the following goals:

Raise public awareness of the ancient form of quilting and revive public interest in this art form.

Preserve and celebrate the tradition of quilting.

Increase knowledge of and appreciation for modern quilting methods.

Provide an inexpensive avenue for quilters to display their crafts.

Facilitate an exchange of ideas, techniques, patterns and creativity among quilters.

Encourage participation of local quilters toward a common achievement.

We will accomplish the above goals by:

Contributing awards for quilters at the county fair.

Providing quilt books for the public library.

Offering educational opportunities by sponsoring speakers and teachers.

Volunteering our quilt making skills for community projects.
