Apple Piecers make quilts for our community members in need such as Pajaro Valley Shelter Services, Jacob’s Heart, Early Headstart, Carmelita’s Closet (at the FoodBank), and Watsonville Community Hospital. We also work with children at the County Fair and Ag History’s “Day on the Farm” to illustrate quilt making and to help us make quilts that will end up on the bed of someone who could use some extra comfort.
Every year we make a couple hundred quilts that will enrich the lives of people in the Santa Cruz County—from foster kids to senior citizens and even newborn babies.

"Space Quilt" is an example of one of our gifts to a child.
The Apple Piecers group meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month from 10 am to 1:30 pm at the Agricultural History Museum at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds in Watsonville. For those members of PVQA who cannot make it to Apple Piecers’ twice a month meetings, we bring quilt kits and quilts that need bindings sewn on to our PVQA monthly meetings. The quilts we all make warm many hearts across our valley, and that is why we exist.
