About Us

The Beach Cities Quilters Guild is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization established in October 1992 to promote quilting and other fiber arts in California’s Southern Orange County area. The guild offers opportunities to share experiences with other quilters in an atmosphere of fellowship, as well as offering programs to enhance the skills of its members.

Beach Cities Quilters Guild eagerly welcomes new members who are not only enthusiastic, but also willing to share their time and talent with other members by making new friends and participating in all we offer, i.e. taking workshops from nationally known speakers, volunteering for a job on our board or our bi-annual quilt show, showing the quilts you have made at our monthly meetings or by participating in some small way with our Philanthropy group.

Giving back to our community is big part of what Beach Cities Quilters Guild does.  For the past several years we have given over 500 quilts to various outreach communities within Southern Orange County.  Our quilts, pillowcases and receiving blankets are given to places like the Camp Pendleton baby showers, Habitat for Humanity, Laura’s House, UCI Oncology Center and Saddleback Hospital, just to name a few.


General Meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of each month Happy Hour at 6:30, meeting starts at 7:00 in the Sycamore Room at the Norman P. Murray Community Center, 24932 Veterans Way, Mission Viejo.  As we have numerous members with allergies and sensitivities, please avoid wearing cologne or scented lotion to our meetings.

Guests are always welcome at the meetings for a donation of $5.00 (December meetings are free).
