My name is Lacey Peterson. I joined the UVQG toward the end of last year. I love the environment and the talent that everyone shares. I’m thrilled to part of this guild. I have accepted the responsibility to coordinate this year’s July Fair. It is coming up on July 15th. I am excited to be part of this and will do my best, however, I need help. LOTS of help. I’ve never headed anything like this up before, so I’m relying on our experienced members to help create a successful event we’ll all enjoy.


In January, RevaBeth passed around a sign-up sheet. A few people signed up to help. Thank You!! While the guild doesn’t meet again till March, we need to start planning before then. If you are willing to help—help with anything at all—please text, call, or email me or look me up on Facebook. (801) 930-5564 or


We still need Chair People for the following committees. There are several categories to make things easy for each committee: Advertising / Classes / Yard Sale / Vendors / Silent Auction / Food Trucks / Quilt Show / Decorating / Bake Sale.

Please sign up, I can’t wait to meet you, and work with you. We need your help to create a successful event. Thank you so much. I look forward to hearing from you.

April 2019 article by Lisa Dunn

Plan to join us at beautiful Noah's Reception Center in Lindon on July 17, from 9am to 3pm. We will be able to display quilts, but are not voting for a viewer's choice. There will be food trucks available for lunch. Come and enjoy one or more of our free classes. We can't wait to see what our local vendors will have available for us. We will also have yummy treats for sale at our bake sale. There is plenty of time to plan an item to donate for our silent auction.

While you are doing your spring cleaning in your sewing room, set aside the items that you can donate to our yard sale. And while you are at it, go through the rest of the house for items as well. You can never have too much spring cleaning! These items can be brought to any of our UVQG meetings. We will be providing more information about where these items can be dropped off or picked up.


You will want to make plans on joining us for this fun annual event. What could be better than spending time with friends while seeing beautiful quilts, attending free classes, and shopping.


Other Activities


This is the fundraising part of July Fair. You can help us raise funds used to run the guild in two ways. Donate items you aren't using and then buy items you want! Ok - technically items for the bake sale don't fall in the 'not using' category, but they do fall in the 'I want them' category. You can bring Garage Sale and silent auction items you are donating to the May or June guild meeting.

Garage Sale:

Always lots of goodies here that are priced to sell. Fabric in all amounts and sizes. Leftovers from a completed project or projects you no longer want to complete. Notions, rulers, decoration, organization tools.


Items can be taken to our guild meetings (Orem)

or contact's homes (Mapleton)

Accepting all types of items.

Contact  TraceCe Woods  or  Jill Cox  if you have donation items. 

Silent Auction:

Examples of auction items: small quilts, themed quilt baskets, fabric, quilt kits, decorative items.  If possible please contact Carol Hunt with your donation plans.

Bake Sale:

Yummy treats and baked goods.   Cookies, cupcakes, brownies, fruit cups, mini bread loaves, rice crispie treats, popcorn balls are all examples of past items donated.

Bring donated items that morning. Please wrap items in amounts ready to sell. You might have a plate of ten brownies for one amount or wrap some bars individually for a different price.

Geralyn Powers will be in charge of the Bake Sale

Quilt Display:

Please consider entering one of your quilts that is less than 3 years old so we can display your beautiful work.

Thank you everyone for your continued support. It all contributes to our wonderful Utah Valley Quilt Guild!

Quilt Classes 2019

Learn something new. All of the classes are FREE and open to the public. Great for members of the community who want to find out a little bit more about quilting. Classes vary in length and are in a demonstration or lecture format. No need to bring any machines or supplies. 

It’s going to be difficult to choose which classes to attend!! We are fortunate to have such great quilters that are willing to share their time and knowledge with all of us.

{??Class handouts will be available for sale at the registration desk. Cost will be approximately $3.00 per packet, to cover printing costs.}}
