Cedar Hill Quilters Guild


December 5, 2018


Wishes that everyone had a nice Christmas and a safe and quiet New Years Eve.  We had a great Christmas Dinner/Meeting with an abundance of delicious food.

Claudia opened our meeting, announced that our guild gave the Cedar hill Food Pantry $500.00

Many Sunshine and Shadows:

  • Jean S. has moved to Caddo Mills to live with her son. She used facebook to find out who won the Christmas Quilt that she had put together! - Great job Jean.
  • Angela C. had surgery after Christmas
  • CJ F. had cataract surgery
  • Julie L. is taking care of her daughter’s family as her daughter recovers from surgery.
  • Kathy L. is having medical issues.

Program and workshops:

  • January meeting will be the Hoffman Challenge Trunk Show. We haven't had one of these in several years. A gre3at time to see amazing quilts and get inspired for the new year!
  • February meeting will be Leo Ransom. He does amazing quilts and it will be good to see him and what he has been up to in his quilting journey. He also will be doing a Silhouette Workshop that day from 2-5. The cost is $35.00 to be paid at the January meeting. There is a supply list that will be on our website.
  • Our Cedar Hill Annual Quilt Retreat is February 28 to March 3. Be sure to sign up..we need at least 20 people! You can go from Thursday to Sunday for $294.30 or from Friday to Sunday for $196.20. Meals start on Thursday evening meal and end with a Sunday Brunch. Lunch and supper meals are prepared each day. Breakfast supplies are available to make your own waffles, toast, bagels, English muffins, cereals, hardboiled eggs…you get the idea. Plenty of coffee, hot chocolate, lemonade mix at all times. Those who sew all night tend to eat breakfast later that most! There is plenty of sewing room (two tables per person) and great lighting.  A fun way to get to know your fellow quilters and get a LOT of sewing done. EAT, SLEEP, SEW! Check out the website compasscentre.com.

Since we have a small group, please invite a friend to come to the retreat. When we have a full list, we require that all are members of our guild, but we can lift that requirement this year.
