The Piece and Plenty Quilt Guild was organized in 1986 to provide a fellowship for those interested in the preservation and sharing of the art of quilting and to encourage community awareness of quilting and related arts.
Guild meetings are held monthly on the first Thursday of each month in the Ministry Center of the First Baptist Church at 801 N Cedar Street in Rolla. The date of the monthly meeting may change if the first Thursday falls on or near a holiday.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for workshop signup and checking out Guild reference material from the library. Socializing with other members is encouraged.
The business meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. followed by a featured program and show and tell to close out the meeting. Members are encouraged to bring quilts, wall hangings and wearable art for show and tell.
Membership is open to anyone interested in quilts. Dues are$10.00 per year and cover January through December. Guests are always welcome at our meetings.
Workshops and seminars are organized by the Program Committee and are designed for quilters of all skill levels. A fee is charged for participation in the workshops.
The Guild performs community outreach through the following activities.
- Making and donating baby quilts for those in need at various agencies.
- Making and donating pillowcases to Russell House.
- Quilting book donations to the Rolla Public Library.
We encourage all members to make and donate a baby quilt or pillowcases. Kits for making both items are available to members or you may use your own pattern and stash fabric.
Guild special events include a Biennial Quilt Show, a Winter Challenge with a display of the challenge quilts at the Rolla Public Library, and a donation baby quilt to the first baby born at the Phelps County Regional Medical Center on National Quilt Day the third Saturday of March.

The Guild has two ongoing service projects for members to participate in.
Karen’s 10,000 Inches
This program is named for a special member, Karen Lyman, who the Guild lost to breast cancer. Each year the Guild has a goal of producing enough baby quilts to total 10,000 inches of combined circumference. Thanks to the generosity of Guild members, the goal is normally exceeded. All members are encouraged to participate. Members can use their own pattern and fabric or request a kit from the Karen’s 10,000 Inches standing committee. The kit includes fabric, batting, and instructions. It’s always a treat to see the adorable quilts donated at each monthly guild meeting.
Pillowcases for Russell House
This program is all about making pillowcases for each woman and child who passes through the doors of Russell House, a women’s shelter in Rolla. You may use your own fabric or request a kit from the Russell House Pillowcases special committee.
