About Us

In the late 1970s, a small group of women got together to form a fun quilting group in Fort Bragg, California; they called themselves the “Scrap Happy Quilters.” Later this group morphed into the Ocean Wave Quilters, which became a 501(c)3 not-for-profit California corporation. The Ocean Wave Quilters is now a 70+ member guild that meets monthly and contributes to the community in a myriad of ways: Community Activities

The Ocean Wave Quilters, in collaboration with the Soroptimist International of Noyo Sunrise, produce an annual quilt show the last Saturday and Sunday in June in Fort Bragg. Almost 200 quilts are displayed at this highly anticipated and well attended show. Every year the guild creates an opportunity quilt or two or three to be raffled off the last day of the show.
