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.
The Philanthropy Committee has added lots of information to Giving Back. Take a look!
"A Gathering Under the Oaks" Photos are Ready!
It was a great show! And the photos are "up there"! To see them, go to the Photo Gallery page or click here. Also, note that the random photos above are from the show this year. Currently, only some of them have been uploaded so far. Check back often as there are many more to come! Maybe a detail of your quilt will show up!
Due to an overwhelming interest in our workshops, our February 14, 2016 Cathedral Stars workshop with Bonnie Hunter is officially filled to capacity!
There are still many opportunities for CVQ members to get together and learn a few new skills! We have Jennifer Rapacki and Kathy McNeil lined up for March and May of next year. We will also be holding a couple of workshops in January and April of next year featuring in-house talent. The tote bag workshop taught by Sherry Ramaila was extremely successful, and Nadine has graciously offered to teach a small workshop session in hand quilting. If you have a special technique that you would be willing to share, please contact Monica Sayre.
Conejo Valley Quilters meetings
February 15, 2016: "Scrap User's System" with Bonnie Hunter. This lecture takes you through years of scrap quilting and how
Bonnie has organized her scraps and leftovers to be easily accessible and workable into her quilt making. Also includes discussion of tools of the trade that Bonnie finds helpful when
using scraps. She is a scrap user, not just a scrap saver! There is a difference. This lecture will inspire quilters to organize their scraps and start turning them into beautiful quilts.
