|Description:||Founded in 1978 by a small group of women who had taken a quilting class together, the Pajaro Valley Quilt Association (PVQA) has blossomed from the original 56 charter members at the end of that first year to 200 members, one of the largest guilds in the state.
Monthly meetings offer a wide variety of topics and workshops. Members are encouraged to not only learn the traditional quilt block patterns and techniques, but to expand their repertoire of skills to include art quilts, fabric sculptures, and wearable art.
PVQA is a nonprofit organization. Proceeds from the annual quilt show are used for community service outreach projects: working with school children, and annually providing several hundred quilts for various local charities. PVQA also supports the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.
