CPQG Interest Groups

These groups meet to provide members with an opportunity to socialize, work on projects, trade ideas and books, and even arrange and take field trips (aka fabric buying expeditions). Some of these groups meet in member's homes so spaces may be limited. Centre Pieces encourages members to form new friendships or interest groups when the need and inclination arise.
Check your Membership Book for contact phone numbers and/or emails.

Operation Shoebox
For a number of years, members have made stockings that are sent to the Operation Shoebox headquarters (check out their website directly to learn more about the organization or see how you can help). These stockings are then filled and distributed to military troops around the worked during the holiday season. For the coming year, Operation Shoebox has requested that we make Ditty Bags since they can be distributed throughout the year. There is also a need for crocheted skull caps for troops to wear under their helmets. For more information about this charitable opportunity, please contact Claire Amick.
Directions for both projects are provided here:
