We Welcome You


The Sierra Mountain Quilters Association was founded in 1980. A love of quilting was the only requirement for membership then and still holds true today.


Our meetings are on the first Thursday of every month at Oakhurst Community Center*, 39800 Fresno Flats Road (Road 425B) in Oakhurst.

April-October meetings start 6pm, doors open at 5:30 pm

November-March meetings start at 1pm, doors open at 12:30 pm

Activities at these meetings may include a guest speaker, workshop, technique  demonstrations, slides or videos, as well as “Sew-n-Tell.” Click here for more information about our programs.  

Annual dues are $25.00. Visitors are always welcome, see below for more details.

In addition to monthly meetings, “circles” have been formed. These meetings are usually held at different places of the members choosing and host various projects. 


The guild hosts a biennial Quilt Show. Other activities include making Community quilts and cuddle quilts and displaying member’s quilts at local locations  Here is a list of definitions for the buzz words we quilters throw around so easily. 


A monthly newsletter will be emailed to each member, unless a hard copy has been requested.  Articles of interest along with the monthly activities schedule, news and current events are posted to keep us informed. The newsletters may also be downloaded from the site under the newsletter link. For added security, this is available to members only.
