    Quilter's Group - San Jose area

    Hi there-

    Anyone interested in getting together to quilt/sew once a month or so, I am in the South Bay area and can host.

    Also enjoy shophops, Heart of the Valley is in May and Shop Hop by the Bay is in June.

    I would love to, but I just moved to Reno and it would be a bit of a drive. Prior to moving we had a group of 12 gals that got together to work on our individual projects, each hosting once a year. Was a great way to enjoy a great hobby!! Good luck, hope you get a group together.

    Let's chat off line. Please PM me. Maybe we can work something out.

    I live in Mtn. View and it's a straight shot down 85 to San Martin. I also go to Morgan Hill once a month for the local ANG Needleworkers Guild that meets at Modonna Needleworks.

    Do you belong to any of the local quilt guilds here?

    I do not belong to any guilds as of yet, they mostly seem to meet on weeknights which are hard for me. I do belong to a few meetup groups and have met a few ladies there.

    I belong to the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild. Our next meeting is Saturday. Info is here: http://bamodernquiltguild.ning.com/

    The guild is refreshingly populated by younger quilters (anyone under 40 in my case).

    There is also a Fabmo event Saturday morning, if you're interested. http://www.fabmo.org/fabmo/Home.html

    Fabmo distributes fabric (free with suggested donation). There are silks, satins, upholstery samples, cottons, etc. Whatever can be used for sewing and is donated.

    There is also Peninsula Quilters guild that meets in San Mateo and they alternate between day and evening meetings. I believe it is days on odd months and evenings on even months.

    I went to Fabmo when I lived in Foster City. I bought some nice upholstery fabric that I made into couch pillows for my son.

    Santa Clara also has a guild, I believe. I found this information: they also meet days and evenings. Here is their website:http://scvqa.org/meetings/

    Yes, I'll be at the SCVQA quilt show on Sat. 4/20. I'm helping vendors from 9:30-11:30 and then will be sitting at the ANG Madonna Needleworks table for a couple of hours working on needlepoint.

    I'll have a name tag "Carolynn Chase". If you are coming Sat., stop by as I would like to meet you.

    Fabmo is cool. I cancelled my selection appointment this month, but usually go every other month or so. Lots of the fabric makes wonderful totes and I've picked up enough huge pieces of polished cotton in the past the makes great quilt backings after being washed to remove the polish.

    Hope to see you Sat at the quilt show.
