The Mother Lode Quilters' Guild (MLQG) was formed in 2003 to "preserve and continue the traditions, culture, and history of quilting." The guild holds general meetings once a month in Sutter Creek, a quaint town on Historical Highway 49 in the Mother Lode area of Northern California.
Our goal is to promote friendship among those interested in quilting, and increase their knowledge and appreciation of quilts. To this end, the guild offers educational programs and workshops with local and nationally known quilting teachers, and puts on a quilt show every two years. Most of our functions are held in the evenings or on weekends to accommodate working members.
We welcome every person interested in the art of quilting, and encourage the artistic expression of every member of our guild. If you are new to the area or just visiting, stop by and visit our quilting guild in Amador County.
The MLQG is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. The guild welcomes donations of quilting fabric and materials. These donations may be tax deductible, consult your tax advisor for information.
We are starting our new year with a bang! Suzy has arranged our January speaker and we are so excited. She is from the state of Washington and is traveling through. Her name is Erica Plank and her lecture is "Meet and Greet/Show and Tell". It is a truck show ending with her Catherdral Window Block!
We are also lucky to have her for a class on making a Catherdral Window Pillow on the following Saturday, January 28th. The cost for the class is $35 per person. There is also a template needed for the project and sells for $15. She loves this class because everyone goes home with a completed project. This does not give us much time for sign-ups. Sign up at our next meeting! Space is limited to eight people! (The supply list is at the end of the November newsletter.)
