Welcome to Quilters 2
Quilters 2 is a group of quilters who come together regularly to enjoy fellowship and a common interest in the many aspects of quilting. The focus of the group is to produce quilts which are donated primarily to Tucson charities, although personal quilting is done as well. Materials used to produce charity quilts are all provided to the members at no cost. There is no membership fee.
During the peak winter season, there are over one hundred members of Quilters 2 who are engaged in whatever aspect of quilting they enjoy most. During the off season, about twenty members carry on the activity.
