Clark County Quilters Guild was established by eight original members in 1974. We now have close to 400 members and are in our 45th year. CCQ is a 501c3, non-profit organization which serves members from Southwest Washington, Northwest Oregon, California, and some long-distance members.
General Meetings are held the second Thursday of each month, July to June with no meeting in December. The meetings have a Social Hour beginning at 6:00pm and the meeting at 7:00pm. Check the website for meeting location. Wonderful speakers from the local, national, and international quilting world present many times throughout the year. Our speakers also offer classes on the Friday and Saturday following the meeting.
One General Meeting may be set aside for our annual Auction to raise funds for our guild and local charities.
CCQ has a charity division called Comfort Quilts. The Comfort Quilts volunteers make over 500 quilts per year for local charities, children’s services, and veterans. Our Outreach group hosts monthly quilting sessions with youth who are sent by local courts. Quilts made by these teens are donated to charity. We have many Small Groups that meet independently throughout the year. Some groups are social, some for member projects, some quilt for charity or Comfort Quilts.
