Monthly meetings
Visitors (including non-quilters) are always welcome at our meetings. There is no admission fee, and we get terrific and inspiriing guest speaker artists who work in diverse media. We meet from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month in a classroom on the Seattle Pacific University campus, between the north side of Queen Anne Hill and the ship canal. Meetings are casual, so please bring a sack lunch if you wish.

Speaker presentations begin shortly after the general business meeting at approximately 11:00 a.m.

From I-5, take the NE 50th Street exit and drive west. Turn left (south) on Fremont Avenue N--about two miles. Get into the right lane as you cross the Fremont bridge and take the first turn-off to the right and then immediately right again onto Nickerson Street. Follow Nickerson for about half a mile, and turn left (south) at the stoplight for 3rd Avenue West. You are now on the SPU campus.Turn left onto 3rd.

Enter the parking lot on your left by turning into the driveway beside Stell's, the small restaurant. Our building is on the east side of the parking lot, a one-story red brick building. Parking in the lot is free for us on weekends; ignore the restricted parking and "No Parking" signs.
