Mukilteo Garden & Quilt Tour is co-sponsored by the Mukilteo Lighthouse Quilters and the Mukilteo Way Garden Club. We are a Non-Profit Corporation, registered in Washington State.
Founded in 2005. Mukilteo Lighthouse Quilters is a 501c(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to provide members with opportunities to learn more about the craft of quilting, to be involved in community outreach and give time and energy to creating comfort quilts for charity. We have made over one hundred quilts for children and seniors in our short history. Hand in Hand, A Safe Place, is an organization providing services to children in crisis in Snohomish County. We have also provided quilts for selected organizations that provide services and housing to seniors. We partner with the City of Mukilteo Recreation and Cultural Programs by providing a speaker series free to the public at the Mukilteo Rosehill Community Center. If you share our passion for quilting, please join us. Check our website for upcoming meetings and events: http://www.mlquilters.org
The Mukilteo Way Garden Club, organized in 1933, will be celebrating its 85th year in the fall of 2018! We are proud of our community and our Club’s longtime commitment to fostering knowledge and appreciation of gardening and the environment. The Club is a 501c(3) non-profit organization which promotes gardening interest and education for its members and the public with speakers, field trips and community gardening projects. Members volunteer their time to care for plantings at the historic Fowler Pear Tree Park and are responsible for designing, planting and maintaining their ‘Crossing Paths’ Quilt Garden at the Rosehill Community Center. Besides supporting several regional groups such as the Mukilteo Community Garden, Evergreen Arboretum and Gardens, Japanese Gulch Group and Mukilteo Wildlife Habitat Project, the Club’s fundraising through the Mukilteo Garden and Quilt Tour provides an annual horticulture scholarship open to students taking classes in horticulture or related fields in any accredited Washington college or trade school.
