About Oroville Piecemakers

The Oroville Piecemakers Quilt Guild (OPQG) was started in 1979 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.


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.

Community Service

We donated 175 quilts this year to Foster Kids, CPS, Caring for Women, Shadowbrook, Olive Ridge and Country Crest.


We received 142 quilts from our members with 26 Tops received.  Thank you to all.  The 8-1/2 square flannel quilts are coming along fine with everyone's help.  


The new project is still in the idea phase and with members help I should have it ready for viewing.  


We will need adult quilts, so go through your closets and under your beds and please donate.   -  Jan Owens
