The Santa Monica Quilt Guild was founded in 1990 through the inspiration of Gerry McGuire, who at the time was the proprietor of McGuire’s Quilt & Needlework. The Guild started with approximately 10 quilters. The first meeting was held in October, 1990 at the Santa Monica Public Library on Main Street. Meetings were later moved to the First United Methodist Church. Some of the Charter Members are still active in the Guild. The first philanthropy project was the donation of a Log Cabin quilt to The Dream Street Foundation. The first quilt show was in August, 1992. Fifty-seven members exhibited 134 quilts.
