Giving vs taking

 Dear Quilters,

Why do you send your check to CPQG every year?  How big would the hole in your calendar and heart be if there was no CPQG?  Where would you get your quilting inspiration and accolades?  What would replace your guild?

Have you met new friends at meetings?  Have you learned new skills?  Have you stretched your abilities at and away from the sewing machine?

So now the big ask:  What can you offer CPQG?  Do you have a favorite pattern (remember JudyR and Hidden Wells? Or BeckyT and her team with Quartered Stripes and Charms on Point? Or BobbyM and One Block Wonder Kaleidoscope?, SallyR and 4 to 5?) and so many others?  Do you have a collection of antique sewing tools or quilts or anything of interest to this group? 

The Programming Committee works hard to deliver afternoons and evenings of interest, but they need you. What can you share with your friends?  If you have an idea we’ll help elaborate and include more people in the presentation.  For instance, Leslie has her great-grandmother’s gold thimble, new in the box (Oh my! were her fingers tiny.).  Who has some cool old scissors, or a needle case, or just a story about who showed you how great sewing is. 

Don’t always be a taker; giving time, talent, and ideas is a wonderful gift
