MARK YOUR CALENDAR -- SAT., OCT. 16  9am to 11am

On Saturday, October 16, the Sew What Table returns from summer vacation!  Once again, the Joslyn Senior Center has offered us space for this event, but this time we will be indoors.  

We've had the whole summer to collect new and different fabrics, notions and supplies.  In addition to our usual categories by yardage, and curated bundles of smaller pieces, we are able to offer you fabrics in "Collections".  For example, we still have about half the cat prints we showed you in the Sept-Oct newsletter, plus we have "Quest for the Cure" fabrics, lots of different colors and styles of dots, solids in many colors, and Lorelei prints, to name a few.  We've also received a large assortment of fat quarters.  And all at our can't-believe-it low prices.

This event is open to Guild members and non-members alike. Here is the link to the SIGN UP page.  


Then come to the Sew What Table and support the Coachella Valley Quilt Guild.  At the same time, please support the Joslyn Center, who is generously providing the facilities to us at no cost.  We ask that each person who comes donates at least $1, and if you would like, please bring a non-perishable food donation for Joslyn's food bank.  We will be collecting both cash and food donations at the check-in table.



9:30AM TO 12:00PM

 Joslyn Senior Center parking lot



The Sew What Table on March 27 was a huge success, thanks to all of you who came out to support the Guild!  There were 41 people who shopped in our outdoor location in Joslyn Center’s parking lot in Palm Desert.  (Some even came back for a 2nd go at it!!)  And we raised over $2000!  Lots of people thanked us and said they had a lot of fun – including me and ALL of the other people who helped staff the event – and I heard a lot of comments about the quantity and variety of fabric, notions, and books that were available.  We collected $150 in donations to the Joslyn Center, and some people brought food for Joslyn’s food program.  Our thanks go to Joslyn for supporting us, even though they’re closed due to the pandemic.

We have received new donations that we will be getting ready to offer to you at one more Sew What Table before summer.  Keep an eye on the Guild website and watch your email for the announcement.  If you’re not on our mailing list and want to be added, send an email to or go to our HOME page and click on the link at the bottom. You do not have to be a member to receive the newsletter, or to participate in the Sew What Tables.


My special thanks go to the people who worked with me to make this happen:  Jerilynn Williams, Karon Patterson, Treese Pflum, Cheryl Taylor, Kim Johnson, Pene Owens, Marcia Ulrich, Joan Kiening, Fran Jones Anita Holden, Tony DeZego, Brian Brown and last (but certainly not least) Alan Cargaro.  You guys rock!!!
