The Pine Tree Quilt Guild will resume their normal meeting schedule after a summer break. The group meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at Grass Valley Charter School, 225 S. Auburn St. in Grass Valley. Guests are always welcome to come meet the wide variety of quilters who live in the area and learn about the activities and opportunities the Guild provides.
The guest speaker on Tuesday, Sept. 2 will be Carrie Ann Fondi, a renowned teacher of the art of Hawaiian applique. Fondi will discuss how this unique approach to quilting was developed in the islands in the early 1800s. She will also share stories of the evolution of the art and the meanings behind the patterns, as well as the superstitions and taboos in making them. On Sept. 3, Fondi will teach a workshop on Hawaiian quilting, either students’ patterns or one of hers available at meliaquilts.com. For more information on the workshop, contact Kathleen Stanley at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 530-346-1415.
