PVQA Holiday Party
Monday, December 9 – 7 pm
Celebrate the winter holidays with your fellow Guild members at a party hosted by your PVQA Board of Directors. Don’t throw away your ugly fabrics–bring them to the holiday party for the main attraction of the evening – the Ugly Fabric Contest and Auction benefitting Second Harvest Food Bank in Watsonville. We’ll vote on the ugliest fabric and then auction off all the fabrics. Please, cash only for payment. Remember, what is ugly to one, is a treasure for another. Delicious treats will be provided by board members. The VSP (Very Special Person) Award will be presented and we will have Show & Tell. The final event of the evening will be a free drawing. One lucky person who is still at the party will win a beautiful quilt made by Pam Rocco, “Dutch Tile.” Bring handwork to sew, and enjoy a relaxing evening with friends!
Monday, January 13 – 7 pm
If you love fun, colorful quilts, this program is sure to delight! During this trunk show, Timna leads the audience down the path of her quilting journey. She talks about her design and color choices, as well as the personal stories behind the quilts.
She explains: “My work is about color and small compositions. Each block in a quilt is made as its own element, independent of the other blocks. After all of the blocks are constructed, my goal is to arrange the small compositions to play off each other and work together to create a larger whole. What keeps me engaged is watching how the project changes and transforms with the addition of each color and texture.“
The resulting quilts are contemporary works, set in this time and place, which reference the rich tradition of quilt making.
