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.  
Our Show & Tell quilts are posted on Facebook.                           

  During the actual Show & Tell time Marley Sharpe will be photographing your quilt so she can post them on Facebook.

        PROGRAM SCHEDULE  2015-2016

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 1:30 pm at JCGL.  A complete schedule of the topics, presenters and pictures of the featured quilts will be available later this summer.

 Jackson County Genealogy Library 3405 South Pacific Highway, Medford Oregon.

   Tuesday- June 28 at 1:30 pm.   "Fulbright Quilt Question" by Sue Waldron- What can be leaned from this quilt? Who are the 41 People whose names are embroidered on it? Why was the quilt made in 1933-34? Howes it relate to the Central State Teachers College in Edmond, OK? What is the pattern?
