Red and White Exhibit

This is the 12th year the African American Quilt Guild of Oakland has displayed small wall hangings at the Lakeview Library.  This year's theme is "Red and White".  There will be a variety of wall hangings from embroidered red work, traditional and contemporary blocks, and sun bonnet sue.  We hope you enjoy the show.


The African American Quilt Guild of Oakland was created in June 2000 to preserve and continue the tradition of quilting.  We promote fellowship among interested persons in all aspects of quilting.

The Guild is composed of multi-racial /multi-cultural women and men who live in several of the Bay Area counties.  Membership is open to anyone interested in the purpose and objectives of the Guild.

Meetings are held the 4th Saturday of the month at 1 pm at the West Oakland Public Library.
