February – Creative Workspaces

Have you ever wondered what other quilters’ workspaces look like or how other quilters stay on top of their quilting materials?  Join us at the February guild meeting to take a behind-the-scene look at some of the spaces our guild members call their “creative workspaces”.

There will be some large spaces and some small spaces as well as some on-the-road spaces that our members use to create.  There will also be quilts created in these spaces for you to see and guess who their creator is.  This will be a fun and entertaining visit to some very creative workspaces from within our guild – you will get some new insights into some of your guild friends.


President’s Welcome:

Amador Valley Quilters (AVQ) is a creative group of people who like to explore all aspects of the quilting world. There’s something for everyone in this guild, from traditional to art quilting, handwork or machine, and every combination you can imagine.

The Gallery will give you a taste of the quilts and garments we make. The Events calendar lists what’s happening when. Enjoy one of our Second Saturday General Meetings at the Pleasanton Middle School on Case Avenue. Our meetings start at 1:30 p.m., but come early so you can check out the tables where members can take some books out of the Library, sign up for a workshop, and maybe pick up a community quilt or a Block of the Month to work on.

Some of the Outreach Programs AVQ sponsors are:

  • Budding Beginners at the annual Alden Lane “Quilting in the Garden” quilt show
  • “Quilting Then and Now” events at the Alviso Adobe Museum
  • Quilts of Valor donations to area veterans
  • Donations of quilts to local non-profits serving children and families

We welcome quilters of all skill levels, from barely beginning to professional, and of course we love to have those who just like to admire the beauty of fabric and thread. Hope to see you soon!
