October 22 • Jamboree
Jamboree is coming soon! We are excited to have 4 of our local talented teachers this year – Sandra Bruce, Barbara Ceresa, Heidi Emmett and Frances O’Brien. This is going to be a fun day, you don’t want to miss it.
We have been taking sign-ups for a few months and most of the classes are nearing capacity. If you have signed up and cannot attend, please take your name off of the list so that someone else can attend. If you have signed up and didn’t have the checkbook with you that night, please bring us a check at the September meeting. If you didn’t get a supply list for your class, we have those too.
If you are like me and forgot if you signed up or paid, come see us in September and check out the lists.
Thank you so much for your support,
Joan and Julie

Dear Fellow Quilters,
I hope everyone enjoyed a great summer whether going on vacations or visiting with friends and family or just staying home. Some find it too warm to be outside and prefer to stay inside and sew or quilt. I wish, like many, to have more time to sew and work on my countless projects and UFO’s. I support, like the Quilt, showing the younger generation the joys of sewing.
As my grandchildren grew, I began to realize, there comes a time, when they are about 11-13 years old when their friends become more important than grandparents. When they were a little younger I would pay for the three older grandchildren and one of my nephews to go to sewing camp each summer. It was a week long day camp in Auburn where they received the basics of sewing machine operation and how to sew. They came home with pillows and wall hangings, some of which they gave to me. Even though it isn’t the greatest work, I enjoy seeing the pillows on beds or the wall hangings in my sewing room. They were always interested in my sewing machines. When I got my first embroidery machine, years ago, with a giant 4” hoop, they all learned how to load a design and change threads – oh the embroidered pillows we made !! Now occasionally they will still come to my house where I set up a bunch of sewing machines, and they sew whatever they want. It really is great to see their love of sewing grow. School has started already for my grandchildren and hopefully there will be time we can get together and sew more memories.
Hopefully we are headed toward cooler weather. The Guild has so much planned, from Home and Speaker Workshops to visiting other guilds with our beautiful 2017 Opportunity Quilt. Working together, we can accomplish so much.
September: Jane Haworth – Journey as a Quilt Artist
Tuesday, September 6, 2016, 6:30PM,
Grass Valley Charter School
There will be NO workshop in September.
Jane Haworth is an award winning professional quilter specializing in custom memory quilts made from T-Shirts, neckties, handkerchiefs and other types of clothing collected over the years. Her presentation begins with a short photo tour around the UK and Jane’s early and varied career in the textile field. It covers the trials and tribulations of teaching herself to quilt and how she has gone on to making unique, raw edged appliqué quilts that have been exhibited throughout the USA and featured in various magazines. Jane will also show many of her T Shirt and memory quilts, as well as talking about the stories behind them.
October: Sandra Mollon
Be sure to visit Sandra’s website http://sandramollonquilts.com. She has some wonderful pieces of work in her gallery on the site. Her workshop will be on hand appliquéing landscapes. She leads retreats at Zephyr Cove in Lake Tahoe.
The Pixeladies are artists who tell stories in cloth. When they're not creating art, they teach courses on Adobe Photoshop Elements for fiber artists and sewing enthusiasts.
