Quilts of the 30's by Quilt Educator Nell Mathern
See our guild history albums:
Our history albums and A Mountain Stars Quilt Guild Look Back At The Past are found on the About Us page link.
We love show and tell! Our members bring quilts, both old and new, to our meeting to display and tell bits of information about how they were made or for whom. Often we merely enjoy looking at others' work with awe. In either case, show and tell is one of the most popular portions of our guild meeting.

QUILTS and GENEALOGY TALKS
PROGRAM SCHEDULE 2018
Once upon a time . . . the very talented quilters from the Jacksonville Museum Quilters Guild set out to make unique quilts, each with a story to tell about the inhabitants and early history of the Rogue Valley. Many years later the collection found itself without a home. Ultimately, the historical quilt collection was donated to the Jackson County Genealogy Library (JCGL) where the quilts are displayed in the reading room at the Library.
One of the objectives of the JCGL Quilt Committee is to focus on the relationship of quilts to family history and genealogy. Toward that end, we will continue the series of “Quilts and Genealogy”. These talks are given on the fourth Tuesday each month (except for December) at at JCGL.

DIAMOND LAKE SPRING RETREAT 2018
Mark your calendar!!!
The Spring retreat at Diamond Lake is set for the weekend of May 18-19-20. As usual, the Spring retreat will offer participants time to work on their UFO’s.
The coupon to register for the retreat is below and we encourage you to register early, if you plan on attending because the Spring retreat usually fills up quickly.
Just to recap in case you are a newer member of MSQG, the registration fee you pay to Mt. Stars pays for the sewing room rental, a small subsidy for Saturday’s chair-massage therapist, as well as actual costs of providing the retreat. The surplus goes into the Guild’s general fund, allowing the Guild to subsidize some of the cost of providing world-class teachers each year. Back to retreat specifics, you then pay for your own housing – most participants share a cabin rental with others or get a motel or kitchenette for themselves. To make your reservations just call the toll free number for Diamond Lake Resort, 1-800-733-7593.
The retreat begins about noon on Friday and you are welcome to stay as late on Sunday as you wish. We usually begin packing up the Guild supplies about 1:00 that afternoon but you do not have to leave when we do! The sewing room is upstairs at the main lodge, overlooking the lake, and couldn’t be more beautiful. We work to provide a relaxing and fun environment for you. I hope you’ll consider joining us, especially if you haven’t attended one in the past.
