Block of the Month

This year's Block of the Month is to make a folk art landscape.  Original patterns are provided for participants for two houses, a barn, church or school, and a store.  Participants are encouraged to have fun with the project.  The cost to participate is $2/month.


The Challenge for 2025 is to create a quilt of a live animal (no dinosaur bones).  No limitations on size or techniques.  Prizes will be awarded!

Zephyr Camp

Quilt Camp is at the Presbyterian Conference Center at Zephyr Point, Lake Tahoe.  We will be going to Zephyr Point September 22-26, 2024 and stayin at the Tallac Center. Four nights, yes, that is ONE LESS day than we’ve had recently and a few less meals, but we are trying hard to get the cost back down. Sign-ups will begin in June. The cost is $500 – so start saving for our BEST EVER camp. We need a $175 deposit with your application and full payment by August.  If you have any questions, please contact: Bev Kennedy or Jenny Gedeon.

Classes & Workshops

From time to time, the guild offers classes, usually through a speaker or member.  A typical class costs $45 (less when taught by a member).  Other guilds in our area also have speakers and workshops that may be of interest to our members, and many welcome non-members in any class that is not full...as do we.  If you belong to another guild, you are welcome to attend any class that is not already full for the same price as one of our members.  Our guild policies regarding workshops can be found here.



UFO Challenge

It's not too late to join the UFO challenge! Your next finished project is due at the April meeting. Every six months we have a drawing for bigger prizes for those of you who have completed at least three UFOs in the previous six months. For the first three projects completed, you will get a ticket for the semi-annual drawing. If you get six or more projects completed, you will get two tickets for the big drawing. We're hoping that helps motivate you to get your projects done! Happy sewing!

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. They offer private rooms, good food, a nice sewing area, great camaraderie, and a wonderful setting.


Upcoming dates for Mercy Retreats:


Monday 10/7/2024 - Thursday 10/10/2024


Thursday 2/20/2025 - Saturday 2/22/2025

Friday 9/18/2025 - Sunday 9/21/2025
