Kitty Challenge (AKA Summer UFO Challenge) Contract

 It's not too late to join the fun and get a UFO knocked out.  Start now and at the next meeting bring this contract and $5 to make it official.  

I, _______________________________, plan to work on the UFO described below this summer. I will bring it to the October 8 evening meeting for Show and Tell. Describe quilt (i.e. color, approx. finished size, what is left to do, pattern name, how long has this quilt been in timeout or been maturing, etc.) _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Describe goal by the October 8 evening meeting. (i.e. Ready to send to long-armer, quilted/bound, something else, etc.) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

If I accomplish this goal, I’ll get my $5 back. If I have not accomplished the work described above, I will forfeit my $5 to the CPQG Kitty. Any money left in the Kitty at the end of the October 8 EVENING meeting will go to the CPQG Programming fund.

FINE PRINT: It is acceptable to Kitty to show your work at the September 18 Daytime meeting to have your fee refunded.

Please remember, this is all for fun. There are no quilt police in CPQG. If you need encouragement or motivation to get this quilt moving, perhaps this challenge will do it for you. You may join this challenge anytime, but the end date is fixed. Please leave this contract and your $5 with Kitty.

2023-2024 Presidents' Awards to FranH and LynnS


PeggyT presentsLynnS and FranH 2024-25 Presidents' Award

They are the best of friends, like sisters joined at the hip, making two brains work as one.

From the very beginning (meeting at QBs) this team thoughtfully pitchs in to help others pin quilts or help with whatever was needed.

They are always ready to lend a helping hand when they notice a job needs to be done and have been known to finish duties that others are unable to complete, with no (or little) thought to the inconvenience.

They have a willingness to obtain/purchase, donate, and make supplies and party favors. Remember the cute thread catchers?

They are idea people who make ideas come alive.

They have created and supported programming opportunities for the Guild and have dug deep into their creativity to use our programming budget carefully.

They prepare food supplying foods for those with dietary concerns when they run picnics, luncheons, and anniversaries.

While making our Guild a better place for all of us, these women continue to sew beautiful quilts, share techniques they have learned, and invite quilters to take advantage of opportunities like classes, retreats, and new patterns.

Both like to shop for quilt fabric, find new quilt shops and “show and tell”. If you go with them, be sure your bank account is full because there’s nothing they like better than to spend other people’s quilt money as they encourage stash improvements.

They have always supported the Guild board and offered to head committees or take Board positions

And most importantly, these two ladies are genuinely nice people: positive, upbeat, who bounce back from occasional mishaps with flexibility and a sense of humor. 

Thank you, Fran and Lynn, for sharing your talents and love of quilting with us.

No Wednesday Daytime gathering in June

 Since we traditionally consider the June picnic as a combined day and evening social event, we don't meet on the third Wednesday in June.
