Roseville Quilters Guild, PO Box 513, Roseville CA 95678
The Guild provides a kit for a quilt block for members to learn about techniques, designs, and/or colors. Members can purchase the kit for a nominal cost; names of those who return completed blocks are entered into a drawing to win enough blocks to make a quilt.
Members donate (usually) hand-made items. We sell raffle tickets for the item at the general meeting. A winner is drawn at the close of the meeting. Proceeds from the Bit of Me drawing go toward the Guild’s activities.
Members participating in the Challenge quilt are given "rules" for each year's challenge. For 2019 the challenge is to make a panel quilt for Community Service. They are due at the April 17 guild meeting where members will vote on their favorites. More information about the challenge requirements is here.
Members bring a fat or regular quarter with a specific theme to a meeting and have a chance of winning a whole collection. You receive one ticket for each quarter yard you bring. If you have more than one quarter of the same fabric, you may leave it in one piece and receive multiple tickets. Here’s a list of the themes for 2018-19.
The guild provides an extensive collection of books an videos for members to check out at monthly meetings.
The Librarian also maintains a “take one, leave one” service for non-quilting books, accepts donations for the library or for sale, and sells excess books.
Pick-a-Prize: provides fun by giving participants a chance to win prizes of interest to quilters.
Each year we sponsor a tea, both as a fundraiser and as a social event. We have wonderful food, entertainment, and raffle baskets.
Our Lovely Valentine Tea is scheduled for Saturday, February 9, 2019, 1-3pm, Creekside Church.
Participating members submit a list of 10 UFOs (unfinished projects), in any order. A number is drawn, which represents the number on each participant’s list that she is challenged to finish by the deadline, which is usually 2 months away. Those completing their UFO by the deadline are eligible for prizes.
Twice a year 15 members travel to the Mercy Retreat Center in Auburn for a long weekend of sewing and fun. This is a great alternative for those who don’t want to travel far, who need to go home for pets or family, or who can’t take the altitude at Lake Tahoe. Private rooms, good food, wonderful setting.
Our Spring 2019 Retreat has a waiting list.
Dates: March 14-17, 2019. Location: Veterans’ Hall, Royer Park, Roseville $50
