Cotton Patch Quilters Guild got its start at a quilting class taught at Bakersfield College.
The women in the class enjoyed quilting so much that they continued to get together after the class was over to share information and new quilting techniques.
The group continued to grow and those who joined the group before January 15, 1980 are considered Charter Members.
