CVQ has entered the 21st century! What does this mean? We now have the ability to accept credit card payments for workshops, memberships and retreats! Not having cash or your checkbook with you will no longer keep you from signing up if you have a credit card in your possession. Remember, you are not officially enrolled unless full payment has been received.
We have added a sew-day to our schedule on Saturday, January 17, 2015. We hope to once again have the Cameron Center available to us but will not receive confirmation until December 2. If not, we will find another convenient location. The fee for the sewing day is only $15!
All of the remaining workshops have openings available. The cost is $35 for CVQ Guild members, $40 for non-members. To sign up for any workshop, please call Judy Gocke today. For more information about workshops, click here.
Conejo Valley Quilters meetings
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.
