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.
Grandma Jones- "Coat Quilts" by Sue Waldron
Using three examples of the utilitarian quilts made from scraps of wool winter coats, Sue will share some of the philosophy behind there creation and the family stories that the names that appear on the quilt bring to mind, enriching and bringing color to the memories of our ancestors.

Program:    SOLA - Southern Oregon Longarm Association will present our program . Read the following to find out what happens after the meeting. 
  The first in a series of educational offerings by local quilters will be held at the January 9th meeting.  Following the regular meeting program the Southern Oregon Longarm Association (SOLA) will be offering an hour and a half class called “How Do I Quilt This?”  Do you ever finish piecing and/or appliqueing your quilt top and then wonder what on earth is meant by the instruction “Quilt as desired”?  SOLA will use quilt tops brought by class participants to discuss quilting design principles and options.  However, you do not need to bring an actual top to benefit from this class.  Looking at and analyzing how to go about choosing a quilting design will give you lots of ideas that can also be used on your own quilts.  Sadly, it won’t be possible to look at everyone’s quilts in the limited time we have available.  The sooner you sign up the more likely your quilt will be chosen for discussion.  Please reserve a spot, even if you do not plan on bringing a quilt of your own, so we know how many people to expect.  A $5.00 fee will be collected at the class. To get your name on the list, call or e-mail Education Co-Chairs:
