Creating quilts that give back
Conejo Valley Quilters is a nonprofit group of creative people that promotes the art and craft of quilt making while giving back to the community.
Board Retreat: Registration has been opened to the general membership! There are five openings left! For more information or to sign up, contact Pauline Matthews.
Professors Needed: Guild members, January's program is Quilt College. Nadine needs two more volunteer Professors to do a 15-minute demonstration each on a quilting technique. The topic should be something you have learned that has made your quilting easier. You will be repeating this demonstration four times during the January 20, 2014 Guild meeting. Please let her know if you can contribute your expertise to Quilt College. Professor Nadine will be doing a demonstration on "Machine Quilting with Glad Press and Seal." Contact Nadine to sign up!
The Glendale Quilt Guild has invited CVQ members to submit quilts for display or to participate in one of the challenges at their 2014 quilt show, "Crazy for Roses" on March 21 and 22. For more information, go to the Guild Web site or click here.
Katie Baron has asked us to participate in Operation: Quiet Comfort, of which she is a member. The organization needs quilters to put together quilts from its Four Freedoms Gratitude quilt kits. The kit includes everything you need for the quilt top and for the dedication block for the back. Quilters are asked to provide the batting and the backing. For more information, click here.
Quilt Show: "A Gathering Under the Oaks 2013, A Quilters' Showcase" was a fabulous success! We received many complements on the showcase presentations. Perhaps you have recognized details of some of the showcase quilts displayed above. And be sure to visit the gallery for photos!
Now, for some numbers: We set up 53 showcases, displaying over 270 quilts. Over 850 paying attendees visited those displays and the wares of our 20 vendors. We auctioned off at least 25 quilts, and raffled 20 specialty baskets.
Workshop availability: All remaining CVQ workshops are open for additional enrollment. For more informattion about workshops, click here.
