Carson Valley Quilt Guild
Welcome to Home Page of the
Carson Valley Quilt Guild! We are a large group of quilters who live and quilt
in and around Nevada's Carson Valley, home to Minden, Gardnerville and Genoa.
We're located 10 miles south of Carson City, our state's capital, and we're an
hour south of Reno, the largest city in Northern Nevada. We are located just
over the picturesque Sierra from beautiful Lake Tahoe, surrounded by three
mountain ranges ... the Carson Range of the Sierra Nevada (see above photo), the
Pine Nut Mountains and the Sweetwaters. This "Moon over the Mountain" block is
our logo, each member making their own quilted nametag.
Our group first came
together in 1986 as a handful of quilting enthusiasts meeting in the back of a
Gardnerville fabric store. Now, more than 20 years later, we meet monthly, have
parties, quilt shows, guild challenges, classes, workshops and a yearly retreat
to Lake Tahoe.
We are a non-profit
organization and our charitable quilt donations serve many in our growing
communities. Come visit us sometime, or just enjoy our Web site and let us know
what's going on in your quilting neck of the world ... Happy Quilting,
We will be making bags for sewing
kits to donate to the women's shelter in Carson City in celebration of National
Quilting Day, 2018. The bags will be made out of quilted sewing themed fabric and
filled with sewing essentials which we will be collecting throughout the
year. A pattern for making the bag is here.
