We are the Yuba-Sutter Valley Quilt Guild, located about 50 miles north of Sacramento, CA. We started the guild in 1981 and have grown to have between 175-200 members! Through educational meetings and fellowship, we strive to contribute to the knowledge of quilting, quilt techniques, textiles, patterns, history and quilt-makers. We promote the appreciation of fine quilts and encourage growth of knowledge with different techniques through our guest speakers and teachers.
We meet on the last Wednesday
of each month at 7:00 PM

August General Meeting
Valley Quilt Guild’s guest speaker for the August general meeting will be Lisa McKissick, aka Tool Time Girl.
Lisa will be presenting her favorite tools and a trunk show of the quilts that correspond to her favorite tools. She will share rulers, cutters and marking devices, but she says to be ready for a number of exceptional little gems as well.
Lisa is a pattern author, retail buyer and quilter with over 20 years of quilting experience. She will captivate you with her clever and instructive presentation. Lisa will have interesting stories, tips and tricks to interject throughout the presentation and it’s sure to be fun and entertaining.
September will find Linda Ballard at our general meeting with a lecture called “What if I…….” (and haven’t we all thought that a time or two!!).
Watch for more information regarding our “Sew Saturday” to be held in September at the Rideout/Fremont conference center – anticipated hours are 9 to 3.
And be sure to stay tuned for additional information regarding the October meeting. Valley Quilt Guild’s own Jody Ohrt will be our speaker and wool will be the topic.
