Welcome!


Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.

Best of Show 2017



(quilt is "My Hosta" by Kay Dahlquist)


Our 2017 quilt show was a big success with hundreds of quilts from our Guild members and from traveling exhibits. We would like to share photos of the ribbon winning quilts from the show judged by Lincoln, NE, quilter and NQACJ certified judge Shelley Burge.

Simply follow the link below, then click on the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner, and select "slideshow". We hope you enjoy the quilts!

Announcements


Please join us for our monthly Guild meeting on May 14th at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Sioux City.

The guest speaker mentioned in the current newsletter is unable to come, so our new guest speaker will be Janet Alingh from Cherokee. Janet will demonstrate how to take a quilt block and change it up in many ways.

Plan on attending the quilt show at the Tulip Festival in Orange City, May 17 thru the 19th. http://www.octulipfestival.com/

Just a reminder that the annual Humane Society Quilt Auction is coming up on June 7th, and they are looking for donations for this fundraiser. Mary Baklund from our Guild is very involved, so contact her if you are interested in helping out in any way:
Give Mary a call at 712-253-3228 and leave a message or send her an email at marybaklund@gmail.com
The website for the auction is: http://www.siouxlandhumanesociety.org/event/2018-quilt-auction/

The people seem to bid high dollars on the quilts made with animal themes or animal prints. It does not have to be a bed quilt; a lap quilt or wallhanging would be excellent. If you've never been to the auction, it's a fun and worthwhile event, so check it out this year.







Here's hoping that it feels like Spring for our next Guild meeting on April 9th at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Sioux City.

Don't come to the meeting empty-handed--our meeting will be a huge rummage sale where all of us can sell fabric and quilting-related items we no longer need. You keep the proceeds, so why not turn those items into cash?

Maybe you can save that cash for the All Iowa Shop Hop during the entire month of June. See the current newsletter for all of the details--it sounds like a lot of fun.

Plan on joining us for our Guild meeting on April 9th!



It's almost Spring, so venture out of hibernation and join us at our March 12th Guild meeting at 7:00 pm at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Sioux City.

Our program will feature Darleen Degner from Lytton, IA. She will be talking about her work as a machine quilter, and will also be talking about a bargello quilt she is making. She is in the goat business, and will be bringing in some wonderful goat lotions and soaps, so don't forget to bring your checkbook to the meeting.
Here is Darleen's Facebook page showing some of her beautiful products, not to mention her goats.

The current newsletter includes information and an Irish Chain pattern for the guild get-together on March 17th from 9-5 at Redeemer Lutheran Church to celebrate National Quilting Day. It will include a potluck, so you are asked to bring a dish to share for lunch.

Our April program will be a huge guild rummage sale, so start going through those closets and bins now to bring items you no longer need.

We will see you on March 12th.
