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.
