Marin Needle Arts Guild
P.O. Box 6015, San Rafael, CA 94903

The Marin Needle Arts Guild brings together quilters, needle and fiber artists. Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in the Needle Arts.

Our goal is to promote the Needle Arts through education. We are continuing our efforts to build our membership and teach others a variety of skills. There will be workshop classes the 3rd Saturday of most months. Members are always available to help anyone interested in learning a new skill, or improving their techniques. Beginners are encouraged to come join us for a fun filled day of learning and productivity.

New Quilting Class:

We started a beginning Quilt class -- "Quilting 101" in February where all skill levels were invited. The class is held at Aldersgate Church, Social Hall from 4:00pm - 6:00pm on the first Monday of the month. Contact us for additional information.

Our 2014 Opportunity/Raffle Quilt(s) are at the Marin Fair with all the other needle work on display. Plan to stop by and view them and buy your chance to win. Proceeds benefit our outreach programs.

September and October workshops will concentrate on either getting prepared to start the next (2015) Opportunity Quilt or finish up projects and boutique items for the Mill Valley Fair that takes place in December.

November Workshop will feature Linda Ballard. Linda will be teaching us how to make a Bargello quilt. If you haven't reserved a space and paid for the class now is the time to enroll. Class size limited; member cost $35.00, non-member $50.00. Additional information contact LaDonna.

Homeward Bound of Marin, a homeless sheter in Marin will be the recipient of quilts that members are making using our BOM blocks. Carol who is coordinating the BOM has her sample quilt almost ready to unveil. If you want to catch up and participate just let us know.
