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

September General Meeting
September 30 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
September 30th general meeting will feature a trunk show from one of VQG’s own members, Colleen Pelfrey. She will share her story on how she became a quilter and show a broad spectrum of quilts.
Colleen has been a school teacher in the Live Oak Unified School District since 1983 and has taught from 2nd grade to 8th grade. Currently she teaches 5th-8th grade visual and performing arts, 5th-8th grade physical education and 8th grade math. During summers for the last 14 years she has taught teacher workshops in the arts through the California Arts Project. She has been sewing since she was in middle school and made her first quilt right before college (the quilting is her mom’s fault). She has taught a few classes at the Sew So Shop, but mostly just quilts for fun.
In October we will have Arlene Arnold from Colusa. She will present Stitches of Glory. If you like Civil War quilts, this presentation is for you. There will be a class on Thursday, October 29th, at the Sew So Shop in Yuba City. Arlene will teach a class called “Use it Up, Wear it Out, Make do or Do Without”.
