March Events

March Mixer

March 3, 2020
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!
