Future Events

General Meeting
Tuesday, February 5th, 6:30 PM at Grass Valley Charter School on South Auburn, Grass Valley

Coming Events!
We have our own Sandra Bruce scheduled to give a talk in February! She will tell us all about the long-arm process with her talk, titled ‘Taking the Mystery Out of Longarming”. Should be really helpful and interesting for all!

March - of course - is the month of the guild Mixer so no program is scheduled.

Looking ahead to April, we will have Mel Beach back. She will give a lecture on dyeing fabric and clothing titled Dare to Dye. The following day Mel will teach a fun class, Free Styling and Spiraling. In this class improv piecing creating spiral shapes are used to make a great modern quilt. Sign-ups and samples for this class will be available at the February meeting.

Lots to look forward to!!

– Bernie Kringel, Program Chair

Lorna Straka"All you need is love...." And some fabric, and a pattern, and a guild with lots of good friends.

On February 5th our speaker will be the ever so talented Sandra Bruce. Sandra will teach us how to prepare a quilt for the long-arm quilter. This information will come in handy three months before our quilt show.

Joan Mosley is going to give us a sneak-peek at what's happening at our March Mixer.

Now I can understand that you just can't wait for the meeting to begin, but you must wait. Please. The Cook Family (the lovely ladies who set-up & take down our tables & chairs) has asked that you don't show up to the meeting place before 5:50pm. They need time to set-up & you're in the way. If you need to get there early you can wait until 10 minutes before 6pm. That's 40 minutes before the meeting begins.

Thank you all,

..Lorna Straka, PTQG President

February Program: Longarm Mysteries Revealed
Sandra Bruce

February ProgramDATE: February 5, 2019 at 6:30pm
LOCATION: Grass Valley Charter School. South Auburn Street, GV

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 February 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!
