GUILD ACTIVITIES

BLOCK OF THE MONTH

This year, participants are provided a pattern and use their own fabric to make blocks - and keep what they make.  Those showing their completed blocks are entered into a prize drawing .  At the end of the year, participants can have a completed quilt top.

A BIT OF ME

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.

CHALLENGE

Members participating in the Challenge quilt are given "rules" for each year's challenge.  Completed entries will be shown at the second meeting once we meet in person, and members will vote on their favorites.  


More information about the challenge requirements is here.

FAT QUARTER EXCHANGE

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.


The Fat Quarter Exchange will be resumed once we meet in person again.

PICK-A-PRIZE

Pick-a-Prize: provides fun by giving participants a chance to win prizes of interest to quilters.


We have monthly and quarterly winners.  Pick-a-Prize will resume when we meet in person.

TEA

Each year we sponsor a tea, both as a fundraiser and as a social event.  We have wonderful food, entertainment, and raffle baskets.  


Our next Tea would normally be on a Saturday early in February 2021, 1-3pm, at Creekside Church.  We don’t know yet whether we can have it.

UFO CHALLENGE

Participating members submit a list of 10 UFOs (unfinished projects), in any order.  A completed project is to be finished by the deadline, which is usually 2 months away.  Those completing their UFO by the deadline are eligible for prizes.

MERCY RETREAT

Twice a year 15-20 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.

Next retreat:  2021
