Welcome to the Cactus Sewables Quilt Guild Website. A 501(c)(7) non profit organization formed to promote, exchange, instruct and inspire in a social and friendly atmosphere, ideas, designs, and techniques to all those interested in quilting and fiber arts.
The Cactus Sewables Quilt Guild meets each month except July and August. The meetings are held on the first Monday of the month. If there is a holiday that falls on the first Monday, we will meet on the second Monday. Doors open and social time begins at 12:30 p.m. The meeting starts promptly at 1:00 p.m. and usually concludes by 4:00 p.m. The meetings are held at the Yucca Valley Community Center, 57090 Twentynine Palms Highway, Yucca Valley, CA 92284.
The following is a brief list of the different activities offered to our members:
