Quilt show challenge: This year Conejo Valley Quilters challenges its members to create a small quilt to depict the history of quilting. Members can find further details to create their own "Vintage to Vanguard" quilt by clicking here.

Quilts for sale: Too many quilts that you don’t know what to do with? Or a UFO quilt that is no longer your favorite? Quilts for Sale is the answer! Any quilts you wish to sell at the show will return a portion of the proceeds to you (to buy more fabric!) and a portion will go to the Guild.

Boutique: Many small gift items for sale.

Demos: Learn new quilting techniques daily.

Opportunity quilt raffle ticket sales: Tickets will be available starting May 15 at the Guild general meeting. Please check your calendar and sign up to help sell tickets at Cotton & Chocolate either July 13 through 16 or July 20 through 23.
