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.  
If you want a zoom view of a single slide, click on the slide.
 


If you are planning on bringing a quilt or quilts for  “Show & Tell”, a sign up sheet will be provided in the Dining Room. Please give your name and the name of your quilt on the list. Then  have your quilt photographed by Robyn Skinner and Marley Sharpe. That’s all there is to it. During the actual Show & Tell time you can enjoy seeing everyone’s quilt and hear their story and not be interrupted with photo taking.

Our 2015 Opportunity quilt debuted on September 13, 2014 at the guild meeting.  It is a special purchase quilt made by the Jacksonville Museum Quilters.  You will see names on the back label of quilters who help found our guild. The quilt is all hand applique and quilted. It is Hawaiian "Breadfruit" and measures 86" square. It was appraised for $4500.00 so it will be a treasure to win. You can purchase your winning opportunity ticket  at  one of  many venues scheduled for 2014-2015. The winner  will be drawn at the Mountain Stars Quilters Guild meeting on  Saturday, September 12, 2015.  Tickets are sold for $1.00 each, 6 tickets for $5.00 and 30 tickets for $20.00.  Contact  webmaster if
 you are interested in purchasing tickets.

QUILTS and GENEALOGY TALKS
        PROGRAM SCHEDULE  2015

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” talks from September 2014 to June 2015.  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.
   
New talk - January 27, 2015 at 1:30 pm.
    "Post Offices in Jackson County" by Nancy Swan


"Postal Friendship" A quilt given as a gift from the Southern Oregon Philatelic Society, the quilt shares local postal history.  Learn about Jackson County Post Offices, unknown and those named for local families or leaders - their postmark on the land! A reminder of the significance of postal history to your family research.
