About Us


Our November meetings have been cancelled due to the new Mesa County COVID-19 restrictions and our continued concern  for all  our community and members health and well being and to promote prevention of the spread of COVID-19 (Corona Virus)! 

Sunset Slope Quilters found it necessary to cancel several of our  2020 Activities due to concerns for your health and well being and to promote prevention of the spread of COVID-19.

Fortunately SSQ has acquired an alternative meeting facility and permission from the Mesa County Health Department to resume some of our activities within restrictions of COVID-19 guidelines.  Our goals are to promote protection for you  and to promote prevention of the spread of the virus.

Our alternative meetings facility is located at 2400 Consistory Ct, Grand Junction, Co.

At Sunset Slope Quilters our purpose is to perpetuate the rich heritage of quilting in America, and to promote the art and perfection of the craft.  We meet to learn from well-known and local speakers, to share our quilts and to conduct our business as well as enjoy fellowship with each other. Workshops are also held for learning skills. We have a number of satellite groups that meet to stitch for fun, to learn from each other and to work on community charity projects.
