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.

October General Meeting

Our guest speaker for our October meeting is our very own Jody Ohrt and her presentation should be valuable, interesting and great fun!!!  Jody will speak to us about wool – how to collect it (she’d done lots of that) and what to do with it once you have some!!

Jody has given many programs at Guilds far and wide.  Jody lectures on judging quilts and what judges look for and the criteria that gets you the ribbons!!

Jody and some other ladies formed “West Coast Quilt Judging Academy”. Jody, and the other ladies of the academy have held classes at PQIF and the Pacific Northwest Quilt Festival in Washington state.

In Jody’s spare time – not much of that – she appliques, quilts, dyes and works with wool, enjoys her husband and pets and spends quite a bit of time from March to September at her second home in Montana.

Be sure to mark your calendar for the October meeting and plan to be entertained and introduced to the world of wool!!
