Members and friends, welcome to our website! We are a vibrant, friendly and varied group of almost 200 quilters and quilt artists who have been sharing quilts, talent and camaraderie for quite awhile now. We are now entering our 31st year. There are monthly meetings, most of them with special speakers, quilt related activities, show and tell, etc. We have quilt shows every other year, and lots of quilt-ins, challenges, round robins, and community service projects, along with an impressive library for our members - something for everyone! As you navigate this website, you will see some of our work, see our schedule, and share our accomplishments. If you are interested in quilting, please join us the first Thursday of the month for our Guild Meeting. We love to meet visitors and will make you feel at home!

Updates and more updates

Our calendar has been updated one again. We now have listed our offerings through the month of November. We hope to get the listings out at least one year and then fleshed out as soon as possible.

Our quilt show is coming in November and we will be updating where the quilt can be seen as well as a picture. We are gathering our ideas and our quilts for you. We have chosen our featured quilters and our theme. The dates are November 4 and November 5 and we will be the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds in Chico. We'd love to see you there!

Our March meeting is just a couple weeks away and we hope to see you there. Our speaker will be Annie Smith and she will be talking to us about "Help, My Stash is Growing" and hopefully what to do with that stash. Her workshop will be absolutely essential machine quilting. Contact Laura to sign up for the workshop.

Change in calendar

We have had a change in our calendar. Instead of one of our own, Peggy Arms, giving a trunk show at our April meeting, we will have Ashley Cofey, who owns a quilt store in Oroville. While there are no details available, as soon as they are they will be posted.

We are starting to get jazzed about our February meeting and we welcome all quilters, and those who just are interested in becoming quilters, to come join us for an evening of fun and education. When we have a speaker, there is a $5 charge for those who are not guild members.

Upcoming

Our February speaker will be Jennifer Rapacki. She is a Tech-Savvy Fabric Artisan specializing in combined traditional quilting techniques with technology driven designs and inkjet printing on fabric. She brings to us over 30 years of sewing and computer experience. Her workshop will be be fun.

We've added a new workshop in April, and it's a Saturday. It will be $45 and include a ruler and a pattern. Our workshop will be taught by Ashley Cofey and we're still waiting for more details. It will be held at the Casa de Flores Recreation Room, April 8th. Stay tuned for more details.

Adding a new option for guild members and family or friends of guild members - workshop gift certificates!! Annie’s Star Quilt Guild is now offering gift certificates that can be purchased in any amount, and used towards a guild workshop.  They must be presented when registering for a class.  This is a great opportunity for your family and friends to purchase something you would truly use.  Certificates may be purchased at our monthly guild meetings or by contacting Laura Palmer @ laurapalmer1770@comcast.net

Quilt Show dates

Our Quilt Show dates have been announced. It will be November 4 & 5, 2017. We hope to have a wide variety of quilts for your viewing pleasure. Our opportunity quilt is starting to make the rounds and will be at the Orland Craft Fair November 26 & 27. Take a drive out to see our quilt, and of course our boutique where you can purchase holiday gifts (early) for that special person in your life.

We are now looking for vendors to be at our quilt show. The Vendor Letter and Vendor Application are under our Quilt Show tab. Our quilt show folks will be happy to receive all applications.

We still have openings on committees for the quilt show. If you have not yet signed up, please do so. Just as it takes a village to raise a child - it takes a quilt guild, and all the members, to put on a quilt show. Let's show our Quilt Chair all the love and help we can.

November meeting

November 3rd will be Don Linn and his quilt magic! He has a "hat" full of things to share and then on November 4th, Don will be teaching "Split Deco" and with his technique, you will be doing curves in little to no time at all.
This quilt is a whole lot easier than it looks to make. Call Kelly Knox to sign up and she'll be happy to get you the fabric requirements and all you will need to know for the workshop.

Never under estimate the fun you will have learning this technique.

While our meeting will have Don explaining just how he became a quilter, you can be sure it will be fun and entertaining. If you've not ever been to one of Don's talks, you're in for a treat. And if you have been to one, come again and see what's new.

And don't forget that November 3rd is also when our 2016 Challenge quilts are due. They will be on display in December for Viewer's Choice.

See you then!

Energy level high

Yes, you read correctly! The energy level at our October 6th meeting will be high. We will be having Rob Appell as our speaker for the evening. If you have not ever attended one of his trunk shows, you are in for a very high energy evening. His quilts are amazing, his ideas are more than intriguing, his energy super high, and there's a smile on his face to say he's glad to be here.

His workshop filled quickly and the waiting list did as well. But there's plenty of room to come see the trunk show. For those who are not members of our guild, there is a $5 charge to attend.

We, as guild members, look forward to this meeting and are hoping for all kinds of good things to happen. We hope to see you there!

New officers for a new year

We have a full slate of newly elected officers for the new year. Come see who's leading us this coming year. We have an all star year planned and there will be surprises galore.

We will be having another fun meeting in September with Cara Gulati who will be treating us to some of her beautiful creations. She has a website, DoodlePress, where you can look to your heart's content. Her workshop will be Ribbon Riot and it's gorgeous. Check with our workshop chair to see if there's still room for you.

We are starting, in September, to take our 2017 Opportunity Quilt around to various locations. We hope to have a list up for you soon. We will be at the Farmer's Market in September, don't remember the dates, but you'll love the quilt and want to buy tickets.
