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.

Our Upcoming Events


September 30, 2020

“Living a Creative Life”  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.


October 28, 2020

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.
