9:00 am: Turn in Quilts for the County Fair


Most months, our guild has a class or event in the afternoon after the guild meetings.  The guild meets once a month on the third Saturday of the month at the Centerpoint Church in Pagosa near Walmart on Cornerstone Dr.  The classes and events are also held in the church.

Below are the classes planned for 2021.  Our calendar can change so be sure to check often to see if something has changed or a class has been added.

Classes are $10 for members per class and $20 for non-members per class.  You can sign up for a class at the meetings in the months leading up to the class or you can email Susan Clark  and make arrangements to pay for the class.  Most events other than classes are free!

If you are unable to attend class for any reason, you may sell your spot to another member, however, if that’s not possible, you will forfeit your class fee.  We will not be issuing credits for classes that are missed.  Any class materials or website links given out during the class will be emailed to all paid participants even if you did not attend the class.

If you have ideas or suggestions for classes or activities for next year or questions about programs for this year, please contact Sherry Scarapulla  Supply lists will be posted below as they become available.

Secret Sister

Quite a few members signed up to be a “sister” for the year and gift a fellow guild member with little fun items throughout the year.  New participants were accepted thru the February guild meeting.  Carla Hellwege is your contact for this program. 

Challenge Quilt Competition 2021

The deadline for turning in Challenge Quilts is July 10th. Laura Lunsford will be collecting the quilts. To facilitate collection, she will be in downtown Pagosa on July 10th from 10 to 11:30 am and in uptown Pagosa from 12:30 to 2pm. Location to follow. You can also make arrangements with Laura directly to turn in your quilt at an alternate time or date prior to July 10th. Contact Laura at or 970-398-1183. Be sure to include a note explaining how your quilt meets the requirements of the challenge.

Our challenge quilt for 2021 will be based on the Elements (earth, wind, fire, water). 

Here are the rules:

  • The quilt can be any size from small wall hanging to king size quilt.  It must be finished and bound with your best workmanship possible. Make sure all your loose threads are cut, guide marks are gone, and the pet hair brushed off to the best of your ability.
  • You can base your quilt on one element or multiple elements.  You will give that information when you turn in your quilt for judging.
  • Judging will be based on how well your quilt reflects the element or elements you choose as well as your workmanship and creativity.
  • Quilts will be turned in towards the end of June for judging at the July 2021 guild meeting.  The submission date will be determined closer to the deadline.
  • You do not have to be at the July 2021 meeting to participate in the challenge. Just make sure you have your entry turned in by the submission date.
