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 CCQG members,

I put up the snowman display on my back deck before Christmas so that I could enjoy something cheerful during the dreary winter months!

Now we are more than a month into 2023. Our Michigan winter has arrived with some very cold weather and now the February thaw is about to begin. So, it’s time to get busy and finish those UFOs. I know I have way too many to count. I have several retreats scheduled this year where I can hopefully put a dent in that UFO pile.

The theme for this year’s programs is “Celebrating Our Members.” We started off in January with an ugly quilt contest. If you didn’t make the January meeting, you missed a great time. Billie Piazza won the contest and gets to wear the crown for a year before she passes it on to next year’s winner. So, dig around and look for an ugly quilt entry to save for next year. And we also learned that one person’s ugly quilt is not necessarily what we might think of as ugly! Beauty, as well as ugly, is in the eye of the beholder!

Continuing with our program theme, Jan Asmann is going to give us a trunk show ofher quilts at our February 16, 2023 meeting. I hope you can make it to the meeting tosee her wonderful quilt collection. The February meeting will also include drawing winners from our latest raffle. There are four lovely quilts waiting to go home with the lucky winners!

You can go the CCQG website and check out all of the monthly meetings’ programs by clicking on the Calendar tab. Then go to the date and “click for details.” We have the 2023 Fat Chance selections on the website so be sure to check it for what the fat quarter theme is to bring to the each monthly meeting. For each fat quarter you bring, you get one entry into the drawing. Hopefully, you will get lucky and win all the fat quarters in the basket for that month.

If you haven’t volunteered to help on our October 2023 quilt show, please consider doing so. It is a great way to get involved and to work with some really great people.

We still have some open positions on our 2023-2024 CCQG board. We have had a volunteer come forward for Assistant Membership, so we only have Secretary and Vice President left to fill. So please consider helping fill one of these positions.

Hope you get those UFOs finished and maybe even some new projects.
