Puyallup Valley Quilters

Our Meetings

The members of the Puyallup Valley Quilters share a passion for the art of quiltmaking. We want to share this joy with our community–and with you! Join us for our monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of every month. Our business meeting starts at 6:30 pm followed by a speaker or program at 7. Stay tuned for Show and Share after that!

Our meetings are hybrid, meaning that we meet in person AND we broadcast through Zoom. You can choose whichever works for you. We have both in-person and virtual speakers. We meet in person in the Allmendinger Center on the WSU Extension Campus, on the corner of Fruitland Ave and Pioneer Way in Puyallup, Washington.

We welcome guests and first-time visitors. Let us know you’re visiting when you arrive. If you would like to Zoom in as a visitor, please email pvqprograms@hotmail.com at least 24 hours before the meeting to get the Zoom link. We look forward to meeting you!

Upcoming Programs

April 2024 – Beth Ann Williams – “Color Gets the Credit but Value Does the Work”

How confident are you when picking fabrics for a new project? Do you ever hesitate when figuring out which fabric to use and where?

What we offer

Community Service

Do you like to sew with your friends for a good cause? PVQ donates quilts and other items to local organizations as a way of giving back to our community. We also donate Hero Quilts to veterans to thank them for their service. If you are interested in helping, please contact Susan Butenko.

Zoom Bee

A Zoom Bee is a chance to sew with your friends from the comfort of your own home! No lugging tons of stuff, no forgotten essentials. See what others are working on, peek into their sewing spaces, share tips and tricks — and have a laugh! If you would like to organize a private Zoom Bee with your friends, just contact Colleen Wise to set it up with our account.

Friendship Groups

Do you have a special passion for a particular aspect of quilting? Maybe you love applique, or the messy fun of surface design. Maybe you’re new to quilting and want to learn basic skills. We will connect you with others who share your interests. It’s a great way to get connected with new friends.

Block of the Month

BOM is a good way to learn new quilting skills — and possibly win a stack of blocks at the same time! For every block you turn in, a ticket will be entered into the drawing. Tiickets are drawn during each monthly meeting. For more information, contact Cora Russell.

Fat Quarter Exchange

The rules are simple. Bring a fat quarter. Trade it for something you like better. Smile to yourself. Repeat as desired. End of rules.

For more information, contact Cora Russell.

Retreats

Want to get away from it all? Do it! Let someone else do the cooking and just sew with your friends all weekend. We host three retreats per year:
March at Seabeck
Mother’s Day weekend at Cascade
October at Seabeck
