Interested in learning more about Block Party Quilters?
We meet each month at Mary Queen of Peace Catholic Church, located at 1121-228th Avenue SE, Sammamish, WA. Meetings are generally held the first Thursday evening of each month from 7:00 to 9:00 pm (check the home page of this website for current information). We welcome guests to our meetings: we ask a nominal fee for non-members to attend meetings with a speaker, but waive the fee if you decide to join that evening. The half hour from 6:30 to 7:00 is used for socializing, so please feel free to arrive early.
There are many benefits of membership - perhaps the most important one is the opportunity to develop friendships with other quilters and quilt lovers. At the general meetings and in optional small groups, you'll find friendly welcoming people who share a common interest with you.
As a member you will have free admission to the monthly programs and our annual quilt show, as well as an opportunity to sign up for our workshops before they are advertised outside the guild. You will also have access to our wonderful BPQ library collection.
Our annual quilt show is our signature contribution to our local quilting community. All our members help put on this show which we hold in November at the Issaquah Community Center in Issaquah, WA. The December meeting is our annual awards ceremony and banquet - a time for celebration and fun!
BPQ also holds two retreats a year at Seabeck Conference Center on Hood Canal. With all meals provided, participants are free to just enjoy themselves. It is a great way get to to know one another better while working on projects, sharing ideas and relaxing.
