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.

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


Our annual summer potluck guild meeting is happening on July 9th at a special location for that night only: It will be at Sunrise Manor Community Center at 5501 Gordon Drive, Sioux City, IA.

We will start at 6:30 instead of our regular start time so we can fit everything in to the meeting. Click the current newsletter link on this page to find out more details about what to bring for the potluck.

Also check the newsletter minutes under "New Business" to find out what else is happening at this special "Christmas in July" meeting. We'll see you there.



Our June 11th Guild meeting at Redeemer Lutheran Church promises to be both fun and educational.
There will be 6 demo tables set up for you to visit to learn new quilting tips and techniques, so try not to miss this meeting.

Our July 9th meeting is also a fun one since it's our annual summer potluck. Mark your calendars with a reminder to come prepared for the potluck meeting which will start at 6:30 instead of the usual 7:00. This meeting will also have a different location: Sunrise Manor
(since our regular church meeting place isn't available that evening).

The attached June newsletter will have more information about guild events. Hope you're finding time to quilt as well as your early summer activities. We'll see you on June 11th.



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.
