Peninsula Quilters was conceived in 1978 when Evie Landes, a textile arts teacher at Canada College, and some of her students realized that experienced quilters needed a place to meet, to share their expertise with newer quilters, and to continue the friendships and interests the quilt classes had fostered. A quilt guild seemed like an obvious solution. The idea was met with enthusiasm, and 41 women joined at the first meeting. Since then, the Guild has grown steadily to about 150 members, and is a charter member of the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles in San Jose, CA.
In addition to Meeting Monthly, the Guild holds quilt shows and has an active role in the San Mateo County Fair. Members exhibit their quilts and sponsor a display in the Fair, as well as participate in other local art and craft shows. Several Quilting Bees meet monthly to focus on specific skills or interests. Community Outreach projects aid the Live Moves and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford.
