Sierra Gold Quilters Guild Visit

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the Sierra Gold Quilters Guild to present my Challenge Yourself! lecture followed by a Walking Foot WOW! workshop.  What an absolutely lovely group of quilters!  I was extremely impressed by the energy of their guild meetings and activities.  They sure do pack a lot of quilting education, service and FUN into their meetings!!
New Walking Foot Wonders!
This energy and sense of FUN was especially evident in Walking Foot WOW! workshop as their members tackled the different designs that can be accomplished with a walking foot!  They sure did pack a lot of quilted texture into this compact workshop!!

Other trip highlights view along the drive

  • An absolutely beautiful scenic drive along northern California complete with some fun music tunes making for a very fun road trip.  
  • Some fabric retail therapy at Quilter's Hollow in Stockton, CA!  They carry a fabulous selection of fabrics, including Riley Blake solids that I need for an upcoming quilt challenge!  
  • Delicious foods both served by my fabulous host Pat, as well as out and about the Pine Grove area.  I had the most amazing hot crab melt at The Blue Moon Cafe  as well as some yummy pizza at the local pizza shop (which is high praise from this New York native!!)
  • And a lovely host family, Pat & Don, who showed me around Pine Grove and neighboring towns, while also providing some lively entertainment including this absolutely stunning vista out their backyard!!
