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
August 26 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Our guest speaker for the August 26th meeting will be Diane Steele.
Diane Steele lived in Yuba City for 20 years and has resided the last few years in the Davis area.
She admits to being obsessed with quilting for 20+ years and has the UFO’s to prove it.
Diane is an active member of two quilting guilds. She does several presentations and class teachings each year. She also has a fondness for antique quilts.
The topic for Diane’s presentation for the August meeting of Valley Quilt Guild will be Group Quilts: Block Exchanges, Round Robins and Challenges. Diane will have numerous samples to share with the audience. She will share her experiences of participating in group projects as well as showing the different interpretations each quilter came up with.
Everyone in attendance will receive a hand-out with many ideas to pursue in a group of their own, whether it’s with five quilting buddies or a whole guild-full of quilters.
