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 General Meeting

September’s general meeting for Valley Quilt Guild will find one of our most favorite instructors in town to give us a lecture  on “What If I…..”  Now haven’t we all wondered that at times for various reasons!!

But this reason will be choices for quilts, both large and small.  No doubt Linda Ballard will be full of ideas!

Being an avid seamstress all her life, Linda Ballard has taken her skills from dressmaking to creating wonderful traditional quilts using today’s faster techniques and tools.  She believes there’s always something for everyone when it comes to quilting, and that quilters have a strong bond unlike anything else.

Linda was a quilt shop owner in Redding and now travels throughout the country teaching both on land and sea.  She has a fondness for quilt shops, but loves to teach at Quilt Festival, conferences, cruises, quilt guilds and camps.  She says ‘anyplace and anytime, she’s ready’!

Linda has been featured in a variety of quilting magazines with her quilts, her patterns and as ‘ad’ quilts for a specific line of fabrics.  She’s also had the privilege of being on Simply Quilts for two different seasons which means plenty of reruns.   Linda will tell you constantly ‘to be flexible and go with the possibilities that are presented’.

She always finishes with one simple word …. ENJOY!  That’s how it should be for all quilters.  SO….if you are new to quilting, an old school quilter or just want to be entertained, come early, the seats will fill up fast for this speaker!!
