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.

Hello all,

Well, those crisp sunny days of autumn are behind us. Now as I look out onto my deck it looks a bit cold and gloomy. I am always a bit behind on getting my Christmas decorations up; but, then again, I am always a bit behind on getting them down. All that work deserves a bit of time to enjoy. I am just a bit  embarrassed to admit that one year, the tree stand gave way and my tree fell down. It was February! Of course, I blame it on my cats for playing in the tree, but that’s only avoiding taking the blame myself for not getting it taken down sooner. 

I went to my retreat the weekend before Thanksgiving again this year. And, as usual, it was loads of fun. Both of my sisters attend and I get some quality time together with them before the rush of the holidays. The whole group was very busy working on their UFO’s and enough projects got finished so that we had a mini show and tell. And, of course, we all signed up for next year.

The November meeting was our annual auction. Many thanks to John Putnam, our favorite auctioneer. Unfortunately, some of you missed the meeting because of the terrible weather that night. And some of you even braved the weather long enough to bring in your auction items and then turned around and headed home. Thanks to all of you that were able to stick around because we sold every item on those 4 tables. Sales totaled $1,450 which we will split with the food bank.

The quilt show committee continues to work on plans for the October 13-14, 2023 show. I know they still are looking for volunteers for the committees, so please consider giving your time and working with a great group of people.  The Novi Sewing Expo, November 10-12, 2022, was a great success for selling our raffle tickets. 

We collected $750 from sales of tickets at the show. Now we are passing out packets of tickets to the members to sell (or buy for themselves) for those 4 wonderful quilts that were donated for the raffle. The raffle drawing will be at the February 16, 2023 meeting and 4 lucky people will win a quilt.

Enjoy the season!
