Guild's Philanthropy Donation to Barbara Sinatra Children's Center

Philanthropy Chairperson, Fran Jones, delivered 76 quilts that had been donated by quilt members to Barbara Sinatra Children's Center in October.  What a wonderful gift from our guild members!

November Retreat in Temecula

Nineteen members got together for the guild's annual November retreat at Vina de Lestonnac Retreat Center in Temecula. It is a wonderful time to focus on projects, visit with friends and explore the local quilt shops.  In addition there are games to win -- what else -- fabric and a chance to try some new projects.  This year Claire Victor demonstrated a wool cactus pincushion and Kathy Dunham demonstrated a thread catcher.


And of course there are the local wineries to visit and the hot air balloons to watch in the mornings.  The Modern Quilt Guild of LA were sewing in the room across the way and both guilds got together for a happy hour.  

Have quilt related items you would like to donate??

Please contact Camie Copelan.  Your donations will help support our guild's mission to promote and share the art of quilting.
