Activities:  Discovery Days

Discovery Days classes are taught by members of the Guild.  The class fee will be $10 for members and $15 for non-members, unless otherwise stated. Sometimes there is an additional fee for class materials.  You must register and pay in advance.   

You can find information about the classes and the supply lists below (not all classes/events require them).

It will be decided on a monthly basis whether to hold a Discovery Day class in person or via Zoom, depending on the COVID rates at the time and Guild decisions.  When we meet in person, the location is Woodside Village Mobile Park Clubhouse, 12155 Luther Rd, Auburn.   We will notify the attendees of each class about the location as the date approaches.

In an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy, a high-quality mask must be worn at all times while indoors (an N95, KN95 or Medical Procedure mask. No cloth masks.)

Directions to Woodside

November 5, 2022:  Small Bags with Personality

This class will be taught by Gail Reinke from 10:00 – 4:00.  The class fee is $10.00.

Below is the Flipping Out bag we’ll make in class.  It’s the largest (and easiest) of the set to make.  The pattern will be $9 or less depending on if we can get a discount for multiple copies. The other small bag in the photo below is a cell phone/badge holder that could hold all your supplies for our guild meetings since it has multiple pockets. The cell phone bag is very easy and quick to make, so if we don’t have time in class Gail can show you the basics and share the free pattern.

November 6, 2022: Lunch & Flower Arranging at Biggs Victorian

This is a road trip for anyone wanting to visit a lovely Victorian in Biggs for lunch and a flower arranging demo from Mona Wooden.  Lunch is $16.00. We have done this several times, and it’s always enjoyable and memorable!  We usually carpool from Mona’s home in Lincoln.  Please sign up at the next meeting since we must have at least 6 to do this.  To preview the venue, visit thevictorianroseofbiggs.com

March 4, 11, or 18, 2023:  Honeyberries

This is a Martingale pattern for a jelly roll.  Pattern is $6.  Taught by Peggie Wormington.

April 15, 2023:  Lupines

This is an art quilt taught by Jane Haworth.
