CPQ Small Groups
Would you like to reach out to guild members, meet new people, socialize, all while sewing and creating things you're passionate about, without leaving your home?  Welcome to CPQ Small Groups.  This is how it works.  Select a group you'd like to join , register (it's free to members), and just like that you are in a small group.  Space is limited in each group. We will start out with 6 to 8, and increase as the group gets familiar with zoom.  There will be a leader in each group to help answer questions and open and close the meetings.  The group will pick a day and time to meet.  You can meet weekly, bi weekly or monthly.  And there you have it, it is just like your friends are sitting around your sewing table, chatting, helping, showing off projects.  You can even change that load of laundry or make a snack, then head back to the group.  Group times will be fixed for each meeting.  It's like a weekly sewing group you're in every week, same time, same place. (or every other week, or monthly, you choose)
To check out our CPQ Small Group availability and to register, hop on over to the Members Only tab on the left side of the home page, under Small Groups.

Patty Ruettgers reports that our Loving Hands program has collected 285 NICU quilts from Aug '19-thru July '20!!  Thanks to everyone volunteering to help spread love throughout Kern County.  Patty is currently collecting NICUs.    Check out our Newsletter to get the latest info on dropping off quilts and picking up kits. 




Our Sweet Dreams programs has delivered 42 pillowcases to children in our area.  They sure put a smile of the faces of all kids that received such a special gift.  Kim Linder reports that there is always a need for more pillowcases and watch for more information to follow on how to  and pick up kits.  



Paws for a Cause collects pet beds for our fur babies in KC Shelters.  These simple beds made with scraps of fabric and leftover batting are perfect to put in the kennels for the pets.  We are always needing pet beds and soon we will have a drop off site to collect these greatly needed beds.  



This year, Blocks for the Brave celebrates 12 years!!  During that time, the group has made 2215 quilt tops and they have presented 2,071 quilts to our Veterans!!  

BFTB is in need of longarmers.  They currently have 76 quilts that need to be quilted.  If you can help, even with just quilting 1, please contact Dyna Hall
