(note: it is recommended that masks be made with ties or ribbon rather than elastic; this will last longer under sterilization)

Good-Bad-Lovely Challenge for 2020 (postponed)
We will be creating philanthropy quilts using mystery guild fabrics. At the March General Meeting, please stop by and grab a bag filled with fabrics and then use your amazing talents to create a quilt. We will display them at our Summer Social and Viewer Choice Awards will be given for Flimsies (quilt tops) and Completed Quilts. The quilts will be added to our Philanthropy contributions.
A few rules for the challenge:
1. Use as much of the challenge fabrics as possible.
2. Try to make larger quilts. Many of our charities prefer twin size.
3. You may add 2 additional fabrics to compliment the challenge fabrics.
4. Additional binding and backing fabrics can be provided from CVQ or from your own stash.
4th Monday Sewing Party
(see special invitation to "virtual" Sewing Party below)
Hello 4th Monday Sewing Party friends and CVQ members -
We can't get together in person to sew right now but "let's do lunch"...online. We'll be able to check in with each other and see how, and what, we've been doing during this unusual time. We'll get to practice our technology skills too.
Plan on coming together on Monday, April 27 from noon to 1pm using the Zoom online platform. All you need to have is your phone, a computer or a tablet and click on a link that will be sent out. It’s that easy and all the details will follow in an email. Everyone is welcome, whether you've been to a 4th Monday Sewing Party or not. Our focus is on FUN and FRIENDSHIP.
~Don't worry, it's easy, really! Just like the first time you hand appliqued or free motion quilted or did a y-seam or that seemly impossible pattern: you didn't know, you learned, and then you did know. ~
See you on the 27th,
Future Dates for 2020:
Monday September 28, 2020
Monday October 26, 2020
Monday November 23, 2020
Municipal Service Center, 1993 Rancho Conejo Blvd., Newbury Park, 91320
