Marin Needle Arts Guild
P.O. Box 6015, San Rafael, CA 94903

The Marin Needle Arts Guild brings together quilters, needle and fiber artists. Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in the Needle Arts.

Our goal is to promote the Needle Arts through education. We are continuing our efforts to build our membership and teach others a variety of skills. There will be workshop classes the 3rd Saturday of most months. Members are always available to help anyone interested in learning a new skill, or improving their techniques. Beginners are encouraged to come join us for a fun filled day of learning and productivity.

New Quilting Studio:

Our on-going beginning Quilt class and mentoring sessions continue. The group meets at Aldersgate Church, Social Hall from 4:00pm - 6:00pm on the first Monday of the month. Contact us for additional information. Beginners are always welcome!
