Scholarships

One important purpose of the Pine Tree Quilt Guild is the promotion of education in the textile arts through participation in the guild, outreach programs, speakers and workshops. In addition, the Guild furthers its educational goals by the granting of two scholarships each year to graduating high school students or current college students who are pursuing study in textile arts, design or other art-related fields. Applicants must be residents of Nevada County. Applicants may apply to their scholarship office at their respective high school or may apply directly to the scholarship chair of the Guild who will forward an application to the applicant. All completed applications must be received no later than April 1st.

The Scholarship committee determines the recipients for the year based on art interests, grade point average, need, goals and college preparedness. The awards are granted at each school's Award Night and the monies are issued upon receipt of verified registration at college for the Fall.

Education Outreach

This committee, formed many years ago by Margaret Boothby, offers help to classroom teachers with quilt-related projects. Volunteer members go into local classrooms to help children with sewing, and learning about quilts with a lending library of children's quilt books, a play and a collection ("trunk show") of quilts for children to look at and touch.

For more information and scheduling please email Margaret Boothby, Education Outreach Chairman at daleboothby@comcast.net
