It’s LOCAL QUILT SHOP DAY!
Colorado is the FIRST STATE to officially recognize Local Quilt Shop Day, thanks to Governor Polis.
Local Quilt Shop Day is a worldwide event designed to raise awareness of the importance of independent quilt shops to the local economy. It is a day for consumers and retailers to celebrate the creative pursuits of quilters, sewists, fabric enthusiasts, and crafters everywhere and to support the local quilt shops that make it all possible.
This event, held annually on the fourth Saturday in January, will be held in 2021 on Saturday, January 23.
Your local quilt shop may be planning to celebrate the day with special events.
GUILD MEETING CANCELLED
There will be NO January or February meeting of the Colorado Springs Quilt Guild. This decision was based on our continuing concerns about the Covid virus, current restrictions, and availability of our meeting place.
The CSQG Board continues to meet the second Tuesday of the month by Zoom to discuss Guild business.
Stay safe and healthy.
In the event of inclement weather, CSQG will follow the same closure information of School District 11. If School District 11 is experiencing any delays or closures, we will not have a guild meeting.
The Streets of Colorado Springs
Here are the rules:
This year we will look to the street names of our city for inspiration for our challenge quilts. There are no requirements for quilt size. We would just like to see your finished(or mostly finished) quilt at the reveal. You have several options to find a street for your inspiration.
1. You may use the name of the street where you live.
2. You may choose a street name that inspires you. It just needs to be a street in Colorado Springs.
3. You may interpret the street name any way you wish.
The reveal will be held at the November general meeting.
“Block of the Quarter” (BOQ) is a quick and easy way to learn new piecing techniques while contributing to member quilts. Each quarter, the BOQ Committee selects a unique block pattern. Complete a block and bring it to the designated monthly guild meeting and your name will be entered into a raffle to win blocks made by members.
