Our beautiful Raffle Quilt, pictured above, is now on display at Kelly J's Quilt Shop and Sewing Center in the Ace Hdwr shopping center on Hwy 165 in Colorado City. Tickets are available at the Shop - $1 each or 6/$5. The raffle will be held Monday, July 13 - you need not be present to win!
Our June meeting is CANCELLED. The Colorado City Rec Center remains Closed. It was decided that at an outdoor meeting it would be too hard to hear, and the anticipated lengthy Bring & Brag would be difficult to conduct.
The Town of La Veta has announced the Cancellation of Art In The Park in July - including all celebrations and associated activities, and YES our Quilt Show too.
Our Guild was established in 1996 as a community for people who support the importance of Quilts In Our Lives - past, present and future.
We meet on the second Monday of each month, at the Colorado City Recreation Center, beginning at 10:00a. Following a short business meeting, we enjoy the sharing by our members of both completed efforts and projects in process; we finish with a guest speaker or a program. Guests are welcome (no fee)!
Some of our members meet, informally, at the Colorado City Rec Center on the first, fourth and fifth Mondays, 9:00-11:30a. We work on individual projects, and occasionally have a group project. Also, some of our members meet for a Sit 'n' Sew on the first and third Thursdays of the month, at the Navajo Water Board bldg, 9:00a-3:00p. (bring a sack lunch)
We provide quilts in support of several local organizations, notably AADA (Advocates Against Domestic Assault) which is a member of the Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence; the Veterans Community Living Center in Walsenburg, including the Dialysis Center and the Alzheimers Unit; the Sangre de Cristo Hospice, the Mt. Rose Hospice in Trinidad, and the Sangre de Cristo Center for Youth in Walsenburg.
We are a nonprofit organization, registered with the State of Colorado. We host an annual Quilt Show in July, at which we draw for the winner of our Raffle Quilt. Proceeds of our raffle are dedicated to books for our library, educational classes for our members, the purchase of materials to make our raffle quilts and quilts to be donated to various charities, Guild programs, and a donation in exchange for our meeting room.
Beyond fellowship, the featured purpose of our annual retreat is to preserve the tradition, culture and history of quilting, and to promote the knowledge and appreciation of all aspects of quilting.
