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.
We made the Ventura County Star! To read the article, click here.
Due to an overwhelming interest in our workshops, the October 17, 2015 appliqué workshop with Margarete Heinische and our February 14, 2016 Cathedral Stars workshop with Bonnie Hunter are both 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.

Preparations for the quilt show have kept us all busy, but I hope we will have some quilts finished to donate to our charities in October. Please consider donating something you have made, or taking home a kit and making it for us. I know the recipients will be grateful.
