Quilt Show Update

We are less than two weeks away from our 30th anniversary show. YOU CAME THROUGH! This is the first year that we had over 400 quilts entered and we had to ask some of you to hold back some of your quilts until next year. We will be borrowing quilt racks from Auburn to accommodate all the quilts that will be put in the show. I can't thank you enough for coming forward when we needed you. There are still openings for volunteers in both White Glove and Quilt Receiving. Please call Betsy Tyler at 274-1587 for White Gloves. Please call Nancyan Tracy at 432-0539 for Quilt Receiving. These are both fun jobs!

Scholarship Recipients 2014

The two scholarship recipients for 2014 have been chosen.  Each year the Guild furthers its educational goals by the granting of two scholarships in the amount of $1,500 each in memory of Jeanne Gill and Carol Phillips to graduating high school students or current college students who are pursuing study in textile arts, design or other art-related fields.

We are pleased to announce Kiana Kraft of Nevada Union High School and Brynn Farwell of Cornish College of the Arts as the winners for 2014.

PTQG President, Joan MosleyI am so honored to be the President of the Pine Tree Quilt Guild in our 30th Anniversary year. We were founded in 1984 and will be celebrating at the Spring Time in the Pines Quilt Show! Many of our Charter Members and Lifetime Members will be showing their quilts at a special exhibit in the Northern Mines Building. These special members have been the back bone of the Guild for 30 years. Show dates are May 3 and 4 with the Gala Celebration on May 2.

The hard working Quilt Show Committee, headed by Barbara Ceresa and Joan Mosley with a cast of uncounted helpers are leaving no stones unturned. With over 400 quilts being displayed, vendors, Country Store and much more, this promises to be one of the best quilt shows ever!!

For the May 6 evening meeting our Program Chair, Judy Vaughn, has managed to come up with a wonderful idea that promises to be a lot of fun – it's "Bring Your First Quilt" and your latest quilt night. Just considering the possibilities brings a smile to my face! My own has a good story (yes, I'll give the short version) and I'm still determined to finish the latest quilt in time to show it to you all. We will be celebrating the Quilt Show that night with cake, water and soda.

See you at the Quilt Show.

Anne Wilson, PTQG President
