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.
Anelie Belden will be joining us in Thousand Oaks to teach a workshop called "Jelly Roll Split Blade Dresden." There are still some openings and everyone is invited! The cost is $35 for CVQ Guild members, $40 for non-members. To sign up, please call Judy Gocke today. For more informattion about workshops, click here.
Let's join the Valley Quiltmakers Guild and the San Fernando Quilt Association in saying "thanks" to our local quilt shops! Participate in their Shop Hop scheduled for Saturday, September 13, 2014. To access the flyer, click here.

December 1, 2014: Holiday Social. A "Let it Snow Winter Social Block Exchange" will be featured. Participation is completely optional, but it will be a lot of fun! To participate simply create a 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" square quilt block to exchange at the social. The theme is "Let it Snow" and the block must contain blue and/or white so that there will be a continuity among the blocks. You may make as many squares as you would like to exchange. It may be pieced, appliqued, or foundation pieced. For more information, please contact Beth Tong.
