Meeting Day Activities Club members enjoy interesting programs with lectures, workshops, and a variety of club activities at our monthly meetings. Regardless   of   your   quilting   experience   or   interests,   you   are   sure   to find   something   of   interest   as   well   as   GVQC   members   who   are   always willing to enjoy conversation with like-minded quilters.

Block of the Month (9-10AM)

Participants   in   Block   of   the   Month   sign   out   a   block   kit   which   they   make   and   return   the   next   month.      The   kit   contains   some   of   the   materials needed   to   complete   the   block.      Those   that   return   the   block   the   next month   are   placed   in   a   drawing.      Depending   on   how   many   blocks   are returned,   winners   of   the   drawing   will   receive   3-4   blocks   to   keep   and finish   in   their   own   project.      Blocks   are   chosen   to   allow   quilters   to   learn or refine their skills.  Cost to participate is $1 per month.

Fat Quarter Drawing (9-10AM)

Participants    turn    in    one    or    more    fat    quarters    according    to    the    fat   quarter   theme   for   the   month.      The   more   you   turn   in,   the   more   times you   ae   entered   into   the   drawing.      Depending   on   the   number   of   fat quarters turned in, winners will receive a nice pile of fat quarters. 

Comfort Quilt Table (9AM-1PM)

Members   visit   the   Comfort   Quilt   Table   to   turn   in   charity   quilts   for   the club’s    Love    and    Comfort    Quilt    Project ,    fidget    quilts    and    garment protectors   ( Fidget   Quilt   Activity ),   and   drawstring   bags   ( P.A.D.   Activity ).     At   the   table   there   is   a   wide   selection   of   quilt   kits   that   can   be   signed   out which   contain   a   pattern,    instructions,   and   pre-cut   patches,   border   and binding.  There is also a selection of large cuts suitable for backing.  Lending Library (9-10AM) GVQC   has   a   very   extensive   library   of   over   750   titles   of   books   and   a   few CD’s   that   can   be   borrowed   for   the   month.      Titles   cover   all   areas   of quilting skills, techniques, and interests.

Workshop Registration (9-10AM)

Workshops   are   scheduled   for   nearly   every   month   from   September through   June.      At   the   workshop   table,   members   can   see   samples   of workshop   projects   and   pick   up   a   form   or   register   for   workshops.   Workshop schedule .

Member Sale Table (9-noon)

GVQC   members   have   an   opportunity   once   each   year   to   have   space   at a    sale    table    to    sell    items    that    may    declutter    their    stash,    supplies, notions,   completed   or   partly   completed   projects,   or   anything   else   that might   be   of   interest   to   quilters.      Members   must   request   in   writing,   in   advance, to schedule space at a “sale table.”

QuiltFest (Quilt Show) Table (9-noon)

Depending   on   the   proximity   to   the   club   quilt   show   date,   the   QuiltFest Table   would   be   the   place   to   see   show   workshop   samples,   sign   up   to volunteer   at   the   show,   possibly   register   for   workshops   or   to   enter   a quilt.      The   show   chairs   and   other   show   committee   chairs   are   available to answer questions.  More on QuiltFest .

Basting (9-10AM)

As   the   need   arises,   club   members   who   hand   quilt   can   have   their   quilt sandwich   basted   together.      The   club   owns   a   large   quilt   frame   and members    volunteer    time    during    the    meeting    day    to    baste.        Many   hands   make   the   task   go   quickly.      A   procedure   is   in   place   to   request   this service. Show & Tell (about 10:30am) The   most   popular   and   favorite   part   of   GVQC   meetings   is   Show   &   Tell.     Members    have    an    opportunity    show    and    tell    about    their    quilted projects.    Program (Noon - 1PM) Last,   but   not   least,   every   meeting   day   includes   a   program.      Programs   vary   during   the   year,   but   often   include   a   special   speaker   who   shares quilting    wisdom,    their    quilting    journey,    and/or    a    trunk    show.        See Program Calendar.
