Technique Sharing Workshops

Technique Sharing Workshops (TSW for short) are free, and currently take place during our Zoom meetings. These workshops, led or taught by our own members on a volunteer basis, give our members a chance to share, learn and practice various special techniques related to quilting.

The Home Page Calendar will include the 2022 Technique Sharing Workshops. 

Previous TSW handouts are available on the Blog under the "TSW" , "Patterns" and "Mystery Quilt" categories.

If you have a technique you'd like to share, please let me know! .

Many Thanks!

Challenge 2022 with Rhonda Denny

Feb 25th, 2022 to Sep 1st, 2022

Good People, it’s time to get excited about the Challenge Quilt, ‘The Fibonacci Sequence Spiral.’

Leonardo Fibonacci (Fib-a-notch-ee) of Pisa, Italy, wrote a book in 1202 about a number system of mathematical relationships that I can understand without getting nauseous. Ordinarily, math gives me an upset stomach, but I found the spirals so intriguing and beautiful I was unafraid and thought, “This is it the challenge I’ve been looking for.” For inspiration, one can Goggle the Fibonacci Sequence to see dozens of examples of the sequence in nature and art. For more detailed information, you can click this link:

On my work sample I used bias tape to indicate a spiral. The bias tape is not required as part of the challenge. The quilt or project can be any size and is due the first guild meeting in September 2022. Mark your calendars (it’s September 1st), let Leonardo inspire you, and know that there will be dark chocolate and fabric treats for the reveal!

Questions? Concerns? Ideas? I can be found in the guild directory. Thank you so much and have fun with Fibonacci!

Rhonda Denny's Community Project

Please assist Rhonda in making some items for Santa Rosa Community Health.

Update on the Lombardi Campus Baby Closet at Santa Rosa Community Health

Good People,

Thank you so very much for your generous donations for the baby closet in early September. Eleven people turned in 97 items including beautiful journals, receiving blankets (some with darling crocheted edgings), dolly blankets, crocheted baby blankets, quilts, 28 pairs of socks, sleepers, bibs, stuffed animals, books, hats, onsies, t-shirts, rompers, lovely bags (to hold the loot) and a big bag of gently used and/or brand-new baby gear.

October’s challenge: any baby item, Autumn- or Halloween-themed for fun.

A gentle reminder that the baby closet items can be dropped off at Village Sewing Center. Items are kept behind the front desk. It is important that you let me know if you have left something there for pick up. I need to get the items as soon as possible so we don’t occupy valuable space behind the counter. Your continued support means the world to struggling families in our own community. We are changing lives with kindness. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email or call - my number can be found in the guild directory.

With great appreciation…



Rhonda Denny
