AVQ is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the history and art of quilting. I joined the guild to meet other people who quilt and to learn more. I became part of the Community Quilt program which has donated over 900 quilts per year lately to various homeless shelters, foster care, police, fire and hospital programs and other organizations who help people in need. This guild is a great way to meet others who are interested in quilting and helping out while giving back something to the community. You don't have to know how to sew to be a member. I love it because it allows me to use my math and artistic skills to provide something tangible to help others.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
making quilts for the Community Quilt program.
