The Sierra County Arts Council awarded the Mountain Star Quilters an Art & Music Sponsorship for quilt instructors to teach classes in Downieville at the bi-annual MSQ Fall Colors Retreat. On October 7 & 8 four classes will be offered on both Friday and Saturday from 10:00 am-4:00 pm, by teachers Magaret Boothby, Sandra Bruce, Betsy Cammack, Dierdre Campbell, Kris Cook, Peggy Daigle and Heidi Emmet. Registration deadline is Sept. 1st.
Capping off the Retreat will be the annual Opportunity Quilt drawing on Saturday at 4:00 pm in the Downieville Community Hall. This year’s Opportunity Quilt, pictured here, is a Civil War era, queen-sized beauty, designed by Paula Barnes, with star blocks mounted on a deep blue background.
