Programs:

We are so excited that the Cobblestone Quilters Guild is meeting in person starting in August!  I can’t wait to see everyone!

We are happy to announce that Jennifer Ley (a beloved former member of our guild) will be able to come to Charleston and give her presentation IN PERSON on “How My Fiber Hobby Took Over My Life!”  She will give us a video tour of her farm, animals, and her business operation!  I can’t wait to see what she has planned for us!  We will also be celebrating the return to meeting in person! 

It is so wonderful that we are returning to in-person meetings, because that means we will be able to see up close and person the trunk show that our Vice President, June Bohac, will be presenting in a trunk show of some of her amazing (and award-winning quilts) at our September meeting.  I have always admired June’s beautiful quilts, so this is going to be an inspiring trunk show to see!

At our October meeting, we will be treated to video tours of some of our members quilt studios!  If you’ve ever wondered what other quilters’ studios are like, this is going to be a treat for us to see where our own members create!

At our November meeting, we have scheduled Barb Eikmeier to teach us “It’s All in the Sashings!”  There will be more about the plans for that meeting in the next newsletter!

December – Guild Christmas Party!

Quilt Raffle:  Make sure to come with cash or checks to our August meeting where our raffle quilt will have it’s official in-person debut to the guild and tickets will be on sale at that meeting!  I’m sure you will want a chance to win the “Stars Over Charleston” quilt made by Pat Schneider, quilted by Karen Kendo, and bound by Virginia Schrenker!
