Artist Reception: Saturday, March 191-4pm
Every year we host a Quilt Show at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Proceeds from the show, along with proceeds from a raffle for an “Opportunity Quilt” that members make each year, enable the Guild to award scholarships to deserving students interested in studying Fine Art or Fiber Arts in college. Guild members also make and distribute hundreds of quilts, walker bags and Christmas stockings each year to community organizations and individuals in need. An Educational Outreach committee works in the schools to offer hands-on help in classrooms and to maintain a library of books about quilting that can be shared with children. An active group of Junior Quilts aged 10-17 meets monthly to learn quilting skills with the help of mentors.
We’re very pleased to show you a few of our favorite quilts from previous shows as well as share our Opportunity Quilt with you.
