GUILD ACTIVITIES

BLOCK OF THE MONTH

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.

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. They are due at the May 16 guild  meeting and may be exhibited at our quilt show.  For 2018 the challenge is to make a Quilt of Valor.  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. Here’s a list of the themes for 2017.

LIBRARY

The guild provides an extensive collection of books an videos for members to check out at monthly meetings.

TEA

Each year we sponsor a tea, both as a fundraiser and as a social event.  We have wonderful food, entertainment, and raffle baskets.  See our Gallery page for some photos from a previous Victorian Tea.  Our next Tea is scheduled for Saturday, February 10, 2018, 1pm, Creekside Church.  See pictures from 2017

UFO CHALLENGE

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.

MERCY RETREAT

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.
