About Oroville Piecemakers

The Oroville Piecemakers Quilt Guild (OPQG) was started in 1980 by a small group of friends who wanted to encourage an interest in quilts and quilting, and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in 1999. 


The purposes of the guild are to expand the knowledge of quiltmaking; promote the appreciation of fine quilts; encourage quiltmaking and collecting; sponsor and support quilting activities and quilters' expertise through education, programs and workshops; and provide public service projects for the good of the community.  We have LOTS of fun -- check out our guild's 2019 promotional brochure.


Membership is open to anyone who subscribes to the purpose of the guild. Our membership year is from January through December; annual dues are $30.  Our membership application can be downloaded here.
