Start Your Planning Now!
2025 PVQA Show Challenge Quilt Opportunity


Each year there is an opportunity for guild members to create a quilt around a theme for the February show. This year the theme is “Square Dance.” This is a non-judged category and open to all members, new or old. Please join the fun and create your own interpretation of this year’s theme!


The requirements/rules are few and you are encouraged to enter your creation. Make a SQUARE QUILT of any style which is no smaller than 36” nor larger than 48” square. Let your colors and design make your entry dance! (There are no special fabrics to use in this challenge.) Remember that a quilt has three layers that are quilted together by hand or machine and are bound.  Please add a 4”sleeve at the top for hanging. 


The deadline for entering your quilt in the show is January, 2025, but it's not too late to start planning and sewing.

Questions? Contact Jill Walker, Challenge Quilt chairperson.

Each year PVQA members volunteer to attend the Santa Cruz County Fair to demonstrate quilting and other handiwork skills to the attendees at the Fair. Volunteers will receive free parking and free admission passes to the Fair (a savings of $23.00).


We need volunteers to work 4-hour shift(s) starting Wednesday September 11th through September 15th. The fair hours are W-F 12 noon to 11PM, Sat from 10am to 11PM, and Sunday from 10am-10pm.

Click here to go to the volunteer sign up page.


Bring project(s) that you wish to work on and demonstrate, answer questions about quilting, show attendees your project, talk about our Guild, and enjoy the Fair before or after your shift. It is a great way to socialize with our fellow quilters.  All skill levels are welcomed. We have tables, electrical outlets if you wish to bring your sewing machine iron.  A task light is helpful for close work.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ENTERING A QUILT: please go to the 2024 Santa Cruz County Fair website ( for more information and entry form. Quilting / Clothing Textiles are listed under the Homes Arts Department. All quilts are to be received on Saturday August 24, 10am to 5pm or Sunday, August 25th 12 noon to 5pm at the Harvest Building. All pre-register mail-in or online entries are due by August 22, or just bring completed form with your quilts on receiving day. 

I will have a sign-up sheet at the Monthly Meetings. Online scheduling will be available at a late date. If interested in volunteering or have questions on registration, please contact Susan Moulton. Members should have her information in the latest roster.
