After a two year hiatus, the Pine Tree Quilt Guild’s annual “Springtime in the Pines” quilt show will be returning to the beautiful Nevada County Fairgrounds. More than 200 colorful quilts will be on display, beginning Saturday, April 30 through Sunday, May 1, 2022, from 10am to 4pm each day. Admission is $8 for one day or $12 for a two day pass and parking is free.
The 36th edition of this popular event will feature nationally recognized expert in color theory and design, Christine Barnes. Grass Valley’s own Christine has a number of published books and articles in a wide variety of quilt magazines, as well as a highly informative blog. Teaching color for quilters has taught Christine that “being good with color is more about practice than talent. A successful quilt might look like magic, but it all comes from classic color theory.” Many of her beautiful designs will be on display at the show and you might just have the opportunity to meet and speak with her in person!
In addition to viewing fabulous quilts, you can shop at our vendors, selling the latest in fabric, patterns, notions, and other quilt related items. Enjoy a tasty snack or lunch at our Quilters’ Cafe, get tickets for our over-the-top Gift Baskets, or do some bargain hunting for previously owned merchandise at the Country Store.
The charming 2022 Opportunity Quilt, “It Takes a Village” will be given away on Sunday at 3PM. You may purchase tickets at the show until 2:30.
Our newly expanded Silent Auction will take bids until 2:30 each day. In addition, eleven quilts created by PTQG Founding Member and award winning quilter, Myrna Raglin, will be available in a special sale, with all proceeds generously donated to the guild by Myrna’s family.
Proceeds from the Quilt Show enable the non-profit Pine Tree Quilt Guild to support the active Community Service arm of our group. We regularly make and give away hundreds of quilts, Christmas stockings, walker bags, pillowcases, and placemats each year to local fire and disaster victims, veterans, foster youth, homeless, seniors, babies and children at risk.
