    The Yuba-Sutter Valley Quilt Guild will celebrate its 40th Annual Quilt Show in Yuba City, California, the 11th and 12th of March 2023.  The theme of the show is “Land That I Love” and it will be a little bit different.  The whole front half of the show will be red, white and blue quilts, and there will be red, white and blue quilts hanging from the ceiling.  One entire row, "The Avenue of Valor", will display quilts that members of the guild have made to present to local veterans following the show.  The back half of the show will be all the beautiful quilts of other colors that members of the guild have made.

    12Cycles

    Opening celebration Saturday, February 4, 2-5 pm

    Eddie Rhodes Gallery, Contra Costa College, 2600 Mission Bell Drive, San Pablo, CA Art Building, Room A-5

    Opening Hours: Monday – Friday, 9am-5pm

    12 Cycles shows the breadth and depth of a complex collaboration between 12 fiber artists over the course of eighteen months and thousands of miles.

    The round-robin fiber-arts project involved circulating and responding to a growing collection of visual ideas that arrived without verbal or written commentary or explanation. Each artist developed a new idea to add to the group based only on what was sent to them, and without knowing what the final collection would be.
