March Events

March Mixer

March 3, 2020, 6:30pm
Grass Valley Charter School

Our March Mixer is a "Strip party”! We will hand out strips of fabric, 3 per person, with numbers assigning members to numbered tables for the evening. Yes, you might be sitting with people you don’t know, but the purpose of the March Mixer is to get to know a few new people. That shouldn’t be much of a challenge, since our Guild has 25 new members between April 2019 and Feb. 10, 2020! Think back on what it was like to be a “newbie” and make a special commitment to meet one someone who is new to PTQG.

The organizers, led by V.P. Lillian Glaeser, will have light refreshments to enjoy, a game called CLRN plus there will be the Quilt Show Committees taking sign-ups for working at the show (see information in this newsletter). And, there will be the Guild Challenge quilts.

Our long awaited Guild Challenge will be revealed at the March Mixer meeting. I look forward to seeing your interpretation on the theme “A Sign of the Times”. Ribbons will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place winners. There will be a table by the entry door to drop off your quilt. Good luck to everyone, Ginny Lee

No Workshop in March.

Coming Up

future Events

April will be a special meeting where we will meet some representatives of the organizations who receive our Community Service quilts. Bernie Kringel and Nancy Holtz are putting this together and are excited to hear from these groups. More on this event as we get closer! No workshop will be held in April which will allow everyone time to work on putting those hanging sleeves and labels on your quilts for the show!

Barbara CeresaIt’s hard to think about March when we just celebrated Valentine’s Day yesterday. In March we will have the March Mixer. This is an opportunity for our veteran members and new members to get to know each other. It will be a fun evening where we will have sweet and savory treats, a fun game and vote on the guild challenge quilts. You will have an opportunity to find out more about the various activities at the quilt show and sign up to volunteer for fun jobs. Signing up to volunteer at the show gives you free entry to the show on the day you work. Your name is also put into a hat to win a free workshop of your choice.

We still have openings for Education Outreach, Holiday Program and Jamboree. If we do not have someone volunteering for the Jamboree by our March guild meeting, I will have to make the decision to cancel it. Please give me a call if you are interested in this fun event for our members. Hope to see you all at our March Mixer!

Any questions, please give me a call. My number is in the roster.

Other News

The Quilt Show Committee is filled with hard working women who will need your help if our show is going to be a success. If you haven’t signed up to volunteer yet, be sure to check out where help is needed at the March Mixer. There will be a table or two for Quilt Show sign-ups.

We hope you’re working on a few pieces for the Silent Auction. Anything you have created is appreciated!

Thanks to the Committee Chairs for all of your hard work!

Calling All Quilts: The visitors to our show rave over the number and variety of our quilts. We have categories for traditional and art quilts; pieced, appliqued, embroidered and whole cloth. We even have Wearable Art categories. This year we have 2 challenges for the quilt show; Modern Quilts & My Nevada County. You can enter any quilt individually or as a group, and for show only or for judging. So don’t delay!

Go to and click on “Submit Your Entry”.

Remember that you need to create a new account each year as the database is deleted after each year’s show. And, also remember that the quilt cannot have been shown in the previous 2 years at a quilt guild show in Nevada County or an adjacent county per our bylaws. A quilt shown at the Country Fair is not counted as being shown and so it is eligible.

Quilt Show Entries will be accepted until April 1st , 2020.

Thanks, Sophia
