The other result of this event was that we signed up THIRTEEN new members! Welcome to all of you! Offering a $25 gift certificate to new members signing up at the event turned out to be a successful addition. We will definitely repeat that in the next Sew What Table.
This Sew What Table didn’t make as much money as we’re used to, but that’s ok – that wasn’t the primary goal. We did raise $896, however, and we’re happy with that. And another $270-worth was purchased with gift certificates.
In addition, we raised a record $217 in donations to The Joslyn Center.
The date of the next Sew What Table will be Saturday, November 5 from 9am to 11am. Mark your calendar!
CVQG has paid for our members to attend this event. It is FREE to all members who wish to attend. Come enjoy a fantastic zoom classroom experience! Learn lots of quilting techniques from some of the best teachers around!

Bead It Like You Mean It
2pm to 5pm
NOTE: This is a 3 hour Zoom following the morning meeting.
Add beads of all shapes and sizes to your quilts and wearable art, easily and after you are done quilting. Here’s the prize: no knots or mess on the back! Learn to embellish in a way that adds to the overall design instead of looking like an afterthought.
Students will create a small fabric flower collage on batting and learn different beading techniques such as solid line bead embroidery, attaching bugle beads, and creating a beaded bezel used to attach a cabochon to the fabric’s surface.
To enroll in theses classes go to the Programs 2022 page by clicking here.
If you or any guild member you know have won a prize at a recent quilt show, we would love to acknowledge your accomplishment. Please send an email with a photo and details to email@example.com
