SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
Sew-Ciety Members: It with a heavy heart that I, as your president, along with a quorum of the executive board have decided to cancel the regularly scheduled guild meeting on Tuesday, August 7th. The decision was reached after much deliberation and in light of the devastation that exists in our precious community because of the Carr fire. Some members have lost their own home or homes of loved ones and friends. I continue to pray for an end to the destruction and am eternally grateful for all of the men and women who have gathered in support, whether it be the firefighters, police, National Guard, evacuation center volunteers, or the news people who worked tirelessly day and night to keep us informed. There are many whom I did not name. Thanks to all. The speaker who was scheduled has rescheduled for the September 4th meeting with the workshop to follow on the 5th. The location of the workshop will be at Sew Simple on Larkspur Lane, Redding, Ca. 
 
 
Welcome to the Quilters' Sew-Ciety of Redding, Inc.

The Quilters' Sew-Ciety of Redding, Inc. was established in 1979 by a small group of ladies who wished to share their interest in the art of quilting.  Since that time, the Sew-Ciety has steadily grown to nearly 250 members.

Many times there are people who love to quilt but don't have the time or opportunity to learn as much as they would like.  With the Sew-Ciety, help is readily available for all levels of quilters just by asking one of the willing members or by utilizing the Sew-Ciety's extensive library services.  A wide variety of quilt-related books are available to check out on a monthly basis.  Also, getting together with other quilters is a great way to share, get new ideas, and see the wonderful items that others have created.
 
Purpose

The purpose of the Quilters' Sew-Ciety of Redding, Inc. is to contribute to the growth and knowledge of quilting techniques, patterns, history, and quilt making by providing educational meetings, workshops, fun, and fellowship. Our purpose is also to:

*Sponsor and support quilting activities
*Encourage quilt making and collection
*Promote the appreciation and knowledge of fine quilts

Quilt Show

Our guild presents a biannual quilt show (even numbered years) to allow our members the opportunity to showcase their work and to give the community a brief glimpse of the beauty they have created in fabric.  The show is currently held in the Spring at the Shasta District Fairgrounds, Anderson.

 
Quilt Bash

Held on the odd years and most often the first part of June, this event has become a ”happening” for quilters throughout the West Coast.”  Open to all quilters, this four-day event, held at Simpson University in Redding, offers personal sewing time, demos, in-house vendors, raffles, drawings, giveaways, live auction (proceeds going to Reach for Recovery), and so much more. 

 
Workshops

The Sew-Ciety offers special workshops throughout the year and pays for renowned quilt teachers to come to Redding from all over the country to teach.  Registration is required for these classes and is offered to guild members first at a discounted rate.

2018 Quilt Show Theme
"Piecing Our Past and Future"
  

The 2018 Quilt Challenge was titled "HERstory ~ Notable American Women". Quilters each selected an American woman whose contributions occurred in or while representing the United States. The term Herstory defines the history of women, predominantly as told by women, and this exhibit does just that. The 30 quilts, and the written narratives that hung underneath them provided details about these women and their roles in our nation's "herstory".
