Welcome to the Home Page of the Carson Valley Quilt Guild! We are a large group of quilters who live and quilt in and around Nevada's Carson Valley, home to Minden, Gardnerville and Genoa. We're located 10 miles south of Carson City, our state's capital, and we're an hour south of Reno, the largest city in Northern Nevada. We are located just over the picturesque Sierra Mountains from beautiful Lake Tahoe, surrounded by three mountain ranges - the Carson Range of the Sierra Nevada, the Pine Nut Mountains and the Sweetwater Range.
Our group first came together in 1986 as a handful of quilting enthusiasts meeting in the back of a Gardnerville fabric store. Now, more than 20 years later, we meet monthly, have parties, national quilt shows, guild challenges, classes, workshops and a yearly retreat to Lake Tahoe.
We are a non-profit organization, and our charitable quilt donations serve many in our growing communities. We donate art scholarships to students at area high schools and the community college, as well as to 4H campers. Come visit us sometime, or just enjoy our website and let us know what's going on in your quilting neck of the world. Happy Quilting, all!
