Arizona Quilters Guild
Committed to educating the public and our members about the place quilts hold in our lives, hearts, and history.
Lions Club Building
The Ajo Piecemakers quilting group started in 1996 for the purpose of enjoying and encouraging the art of quilt making. The group became a chapter of the Arizona Quilters’ Guild in 2007. Comprised of 20+ quilters from beginners to experts, the group meets weekly to share knowledge and work on quilts.
They meet on Wednesdays from 9 – 11:30 am throughout the year. Arizona Quilting Guild business meetings are the second Wednesday of each month (Nov. – Apr.) at 9:30 am. Meetings from Oct. 1 through April 30 are at the Lion’s Club (Center & Cameron). Summer meetings are at the Salazar-Ajo Library. At the meetings, members work on their individual or group projects. During the winter season, the chapter holds various workshops and demonstrations, including a national teacher each February.
An annual quilt show, “Quilting in the Sonoran Desert”, is the first weekend of February where chapter members display their quilts. The show has demonstrations, bed turnings and vendors selling a variety of items. Drawing for the “Opportunity” quilt, created to raise funds to support local organizations, is done at the end of the show.
The Chapter helps the Ajo community in a variety of ways. In 2019, members sewed 20 naptime quilts for the local Pre-K school.
There are no dues, but attendees are asked to make a donation each time they attend to offset costs at the Lion’s Club.
