Welcome to our new fiscal year. I look forward to serving as your President for the next two years. My goal is that we have fun participating in guild activities. Re-member we are a volunteer organization. Please make sure you do your part when asked. At the July meeting there will be a vote on […]

Thank you for participating in the creation of this beautiful butterfly quilt for me. I love the bright colored patterned fabric used to make the butterflies and the great quilting using the colorful variegated thread and the great nature motif of flowers, butterflies, dragonflies, and bees. All these images of nature are perfect for me. […]

Spring seems to have finally arrived in time for us to relax and check out some of the many guild quilt shows in the San Francisco surround.   Seeing quilts from other guilds can widen our experiences as we see their quilt patterns on display, their challenges, vendors and guest speakers, all of which can […]

Our 2017 Quilt Show last weekend was so beautiful.  All of the teams worked together to create a lovely viewing of our quilts.  Many positive comments have been received regarding the new layout for our quilt frames, with pauses in each row and two new Guest Resting Areas.

Jennie was coming from Great Britain to speak at our general meeting this month and to teach a two day class for our members. Unfortunately, not enough members signed up for the class, so […]

As another year comes to an end, it is nice to look back at all that our guild has accomplished. Our philanthropic teams, Quilts to Share and Patriotic, have stayed busy all year, making kits for our members to complete, accepting quilts and items that our members make with their own stash, and delivering these […]

After enjoying so many beautiful quilts at Pacific International Quilt Festival (PIQF) in October, I have enough inspiration to last me for many months to come. YES! I realize that I say this every year but it is still true! Jan Soules, our November guest speaker, will present a trunk show of her award-winning quilts […]

With all the warm weather it is hard to believe it is October already. This is the time of year for planning and sewing for holiday giving. I am busy cutting fabric and making up kits for each of my planned projects for the season. It takes a little extra time up front, but when […]
