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.
