Capitol City Quilt Guild (CCQG) was organized in March, 1984, to encourage fellowship, cooperation, and learning among area quilters and to promote public appreciation for creativity and high standards for quilting.  CCQG is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization giving to the community education, hosting quilt shows to spread the art of quilting.  The Guild members make and donate quilts for various charities and as well as provide free education seminars for the public on the art of quilting.

2022 Retreat

Hello all,

I love the crisp sunny days we are having this Autumn. Everywhere I drive, I notice the beautiful color of the trees. The flowers on the deck, which survived the heat of the summer, have started to die during some of the cold nights. So, it’s time to clean them up until next year. I have a very large pot of succulents that I bring in every year. When I purchased the ceramic pot, I loved it because it was so big. The nursery loaded it into my car, but when I got home, I found out that I could barely lift it. Once the dirt was added and it was planted, it was so heavy that the only way to get it in and out the house was to “roll” it through the door. So, I need to face that task this week before the frosty nights kill all those beautiful succulents.

Every year I go to a nearby retreat center the weekend before Thanksgiving. My birthday usually falls close to this weekend, so it becomes a birthday gift to myself. Both of my sisters also come, along with several friends. We have done this for over 10 years and each year I look forward to work on my UFOs and spending time with my sisters and friends.

There are only a few months to finish up those Christmas gifts. I usually set a goal of projects to finish every year for charity or for gifts and those usually get finished near the end of the year. If you are planning on giving a quilt, give your longarm quilter plenty of time because there are a lot of procrastinators out there - especially me!

Our group is getting back to normal. We had a successful retreat in September at the Quality Suites and look forward to a Spring retreat. The plans are already in the works, so look for details in the upcoming months.

We also have a committee working on our next quilt show. Many of the committee positions have been filled, but there are still openings. Contact Coreen Strzalka or Cathy Skelton if you wish to volunteer. If you can’t be on the committee, don’t worry. We will need plenty of help later to put on the quilt show. So, start finishing up those quilts that you would like to enter in the show.

The Novi Sewing Expo, November 10-12, 2022, is coming up soon. We will have a booth there selling tickets for the 4 beautiful quilts that we will be raffling. This raffle will help raise fundsfor our quilt show. We will also have a packet of tickets at the November meeting for our members to sell. They will make great stocking stuffers to give for Christmas. The drawing will be February 16, 2023 at our monthly meeting. And don’t worry, if you aren’t a lucky winner for this raffle, we will also be having a bigger raffle for the 2023 quilt show.

Enjoy the beautiful Fall months!
