    Judith and TarynJudith Seibold, a long time member of GQCCC, passed away on June 2.

    She was a generous woman and loved sewing and crocheting. She loved her guild friends and especially the Zoom groups during the pandemic.  She made many, many quilts for her large family and many friends. Every scrap of fabric became a quilt. She was a woman of faith and described her life as “charmed and blessed” ~ Tammy Zanella

    Judith used to comment to me personally how I always made her laugh. I think about the song don't shed a tear for me, my life won't end without you. Judith was generous of self, had stern principles and adored by all ~ Nancy Van Meter

    Thank you, Judith, for your love and caring devotion to your quilting. Bless your family in their loss ~ Pat Abernathy

    I remember sitting with Judith at a GQCCC meeting and she wanted to see pictures of the quilts I have made. So I showed her on my phone and we ended up looking at all of them. She was a wonderful spirit and I will miss her ~ Monica Kaseman

    Patsy Ronat and Valerie Sauban traveled with this year's opportunity quilt one last time to present the work to the raffle winner, Jeanne Myers.

    The winning ticket was purchased at one of the early ticket sales events at The Ruth Bancroft Gardens & Nursery in Walnut Creek, where Jeanne and friends were celebrating a birthday. Her plans are to prominently display the quilt in her home on a wall with a cedar backdrop. 

    Patsy and Valerie tirelessly sold tickets at many  sister guild meetings and venues in the months leading up to this year's quilt show.  Ticket sales were brisk during the show.  Over 12,500 tickets filled the raffle drum to near-capacity on the day of the drawing!

    Congratulations, Jeanne!
