October Program: Sandra Bruce
Longarm Mysteries Revealed

October 1, 2019, 6:30pm
Grass Valley Charter School

Why do longarm quilters ask for bigger backs and batting? What are some of the pitfalls that can be avoided so that your longarm quilter can make your quilt beautiful and judge-worthy? How exactly does the magic of long arm quilting happen? For answers to these questions and other questions you may have, come to the October meeting to hear a presentation by Sandra Bruce. She will use visuals in a slide show to illustrate the ins-and-outs of what longarmers do, and how a quilt is finished. Even if you don’t use long arm services you may pick up a tip or two!

Join us at the October meeting to have your questions answered!

Lorna StrakaHello Quilters!

Quilt-a-Palooza – On Monday September 16th Grass Valley received its first downpour of the season, but that didn't stop the members of the Pine Tree Quilt Guild who showed up for Quilt-a-Palooza. About 30 members participated in this year's event, bringing sewing machines, fabric, finished quilts and snacks. The Vet's Hall was filled with busy sewers laughing and sewing while the rain came pouring down and lightening lit up the sky. Many quilt tops were dropped off for other quilters to quilt and bind. Several finished quilts were donated as well.

When the day was done Community Service received 19 completed quilts and 38 pillowcases. We will let you know more about the success of Quilt-a-Palooza at the October Guild Meeting.

Nancy Holtz and the Happy Threads mini group would like to thank everyone who took the time to show up to this Community Service event making Quilt-a-Palooza a huge success.

Thanks!

..Lorna Straka, PTQG President
