Valley Quilt Guild

Marysville – Yuba City est.1982

The Valley Quilt Guild has a membership with a multitude of skills. Our goal is to have fun, learn new things, help our community with community service, and quilt, quilt, quilt!

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.

September 30, 2020

In this lecture/trunk show Jane Haworth will describe how she became the quilt maker she is today and describe the influences and techniques that she uses. She will talk about setting up an Etsy shop and how she uses this for her T-shirt quilt business. Jane will also describe some of the challenging requests she receives from clients and how trying something new brings out her creative spirit. Jane’s goal is to inspire quilters to go out of their comfort zone and just have fun creating.

Jane Haworth Workshop:  TIPS AND TRICKS FOR MAKING T SHIRT QUILTS
I have been making T Shirt Quilts full time for over 2 years making quilts form around the USA from my Etsy shop. In that time I have developed ways and techniques for making the most of this style that is now growing ever more popular.

In this class I will share with students the best way to design the quilt with the T Shirts you have to use, every one is different! Share a variety of designs and options and how to combine cotton fabrics with the shirts to help stabilize them.

Although the quilt won’t get finished during this class students will get it mapped out, cut and blocks started before continuing on at home.

Lecture by Tracey Brookshier – “Brave Use of Color”


October 29, 2020

Workshop by Tracey Brookshier “Butterfly Town” has large (12”) easy-to-piece blocks made from strips, squares, and rectangles. Choose large-scale designer prints for the upper wings; medium to small scale prints for the lower wings; and a darker contrasting print or solid for the body and cornerstones. A tone-on-tone or other subtle print works well in the background to show off the butterflies.
