Exploring creativity through quilting


The CCQG Workshop Committee is beginning to offer some in person workshops and events; however, due to COVID guidelines for meetings of large in person groups, we ask that you please wear a mask if you are unvaccinated and adhere to the social distancing guidelines that are in place. 

Workshops are a favorite benefit of CCQG membership.  Exposure to new techniques is inspiring.  You can meet a world-class textile/design instructor in a small virtual group setting.    You will leave energized from the creative and social workout.

Need to do some shopping for supplies for a class?  Check out the Resource page to locate a local retailer.

    How to Select Colors from your Stash for Your Next Quilt

    You will work through some simple practical Color exercises, using colored pencils, paper, & fabric scraps. The fundamentals of Color and Value will be reviewed and then applying to your fabrics. This is a fun class to apply all those principles we read about and see what happens when we play with color!

    The goal is for you to understand how Color and Value can be used to help you turn your stash/scraps into a beautiful quilt or project. We hope to make at least 2 quilt squares in class.  Pattern will be provided.

    Classroom will open at 8:45AM to set up your machines so the instructors can begin promptly at 9:00AM.
