West Sound Quilters is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to share and stimulate the knowledge and love of quilting among our members and our community.

We have been gathering quilters in the area around Port Orchard, WA. since 1985 and have grown to over 200 wonderful members. We are a very active guild with frequent quilt shows, over a dozen "mini" groups, a wide variety of classes and workshops, two retreats each year, and a number of philanthropic projects.

Monthly meetings generally feature a guest speaker or hands-on project, show-and-tell, and a block of the month and/or fat quarter exchange. In addition we have an extensive loaning library free for our members.

    If you haven't been to one before, don't worry they're fun and easy. Just pack up your sewing supplies and show up at the appointed time and location.

    Some have a specific purpose, like the Hero Quilts, while others are totally free form. Bring your own project to work on or spend time helping with a group quilt. Depending on the time of day, you might want to bring your lunch, too.

    These FREE get-togethers are very relaxed, people come and go as they choose. Many of the participants are long-time quilters and long-time members of our guild. It's the perfect opportunity to ask questions, kick around ideas, get a little help with pesky problems, and just get better acquainted.

    Drop in for a few minutes to say Hi, or stay for the whole time. It's all up to you. There's no fee, no sign-up, and no obligation.
