President's message President's Message • January 2018

Sophia DayHappy New Year to everyone! It’s approaching so quickly. And with that begins my term as president. I look forward to working with all of you in the coming year. Speaking of rewarding, we still have some positions that need chairs:
• Vice President
• Jamboree: This can be shared. You will select and arrange date, location, and teachers for the Guild’s annual Jamboree.
• Mini Groups: Shall assist members in joining a mini group.
• Publicity: Shall provide information to the community to keep them informed of
Guild Activities.
• Treasure Table: Shall be responsible for receiving items brought in by members,
pricing such items, selling them to members and turning over the money to
the treasurer.

None of these take very much time and will help make the year so much more fun and successful. Please consider volunteering. If you have questions or would like to discuss further, please feel free to call me at 530-913-8555.

Thanks and I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.

..Sophia Day, PTQG President

January Program: Transparency—A Very Special Effect

Christine Barnes

Meeting:Tuesday, January 9, 2018 6:30PM
Grass Valley Charter on South Auburn in Grass Valley
Workshop: Wednesday, January 10th, 9:00 to 3:00
Seventh Day Adventist Church, Osborne Rd., Grass Valley, CA

Lynn wilder“Christine, where do find these fabrics you can see through?”

That was a question from a puzzled friend (who is a paper artist but not a quilter) in one of my color classes.
My examples of transparency had her completely fooled, proof that this color illusion can be very convincing. It takes just-right fabrics for successful transparencies, but when it works, wow!

Parent/child transparency" involves a light parent, a dark parent, and, where the two parents overlap, a medium child—“color DNA.”

With "layered transparency," a shape of transparent color seems to float above or below another area of color. The effect can be graphic or ethereal, but it's always magical. Come see what it’s all about with “see-through” color!

If you’re taking Christine’s class, the presentation will be helpful for you the next day.
