Here are the PTQG Events for 2021

March Mystery Match Up Mailings

Do you remember the fun of Valentine’s Day in your elementary classroom? Getting all those Valentines from friends and feeling the LOVE of your classmates? Well, your friends in the Pine Tree Quilt Guild are looking forward to some fun during the month of March when we would usually be assembled together enjoying a smorgasbord of food and games. This March we are planning a mystery mail exchange where you will fill a 6×9” manilla envelope with quilt-related goodies and mail it to a quilt guild member that you have been assigned and in turn receive an envelope from a mystery member in the month of March. We plan a reveal party at our April guild Zoom meeting as well. Below are the details of the game. If this sounds like some fun that you would like to participate in, please contact Ruth Bertaccini at 530-272-7423 or by Valentine’s Day (February 14th). Envelope contents should include: * A quilt pattern—either an original pattern or a downloaded copy of a pattern. * A small quantity of fabric—a fat quarter or 1/4 to 1/3 yard of a fun fabric. * A copy of a recipe to share that is both healthy and yummy! * On a piece of 8 1/2 x 11” paper—one side should include 3 or 4 helpful quilting hints. The other side should contain your initials and a few clues to your identity ie “member of Happy Threads mini group”, “I’m a past president of the guild”, “I have a long-arm quilting business”, etc. Don’t be left out! Call or email me today. (Please leave me a message if I’m not home to pick up the phone.) I plan on making the Mystery Match-ups (who has who) by March 1 and will be contacting you with your match shortly thereafter so you can get busy getting your envelope ready to mail so your recipient will receive it before our April guild meeting on April 6th.

Placemats for Meals on Wheels and the Senior Center

We’re going to make placemats for our local Meals on Wheels and, also, the new Senior Center (which will have a washing machine to keep those placemats nice and clean). You can use any placemat pattern you would like. A suggested size is 18″ x 12″, but that’s just a suggestion.

All placemats can be dropped off at Community Service on the 1st & 3rd Thursday of each month.
