Our next meeting and "Modern Piecing Schoolhouse"
workshop is scheduled for:

At 11:00am there will be a short meeting to update everyone on guild business and news.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend the meeting portion even if you can't stay for the workshop.

Membership in the CLMQG is required for this workshop if you have attended one of our meetings in the past.  First time attendees to the CLMQG may participate in the workshop for a $5 fee.  Membership forms will be available and accepted at the meeting sign-in desk.

Please follow these instructions to reserve your workshop spot:
  • Send an email to crystallakemqg (at) gmail (dot) com with the words "Register September 15 Workshop" in the subject line
  • Registration deadline is Friday, September 13
  • We will send a response email confirming your registration.
  • This is a sewing machine workshop, so please plan to bring a machine.
  • The first 90 minutes of this sew-in time will be structured workshop.  After that you may work on more blocks that were demonstrated or another project of your choice.  Please be courteous to other members and plan on participating in the initial workshop if you register :)
We sincerely hope we've got enough seats for everyone that wishes to attend, but if there are more sign-up requests than seats available we will start a waiting list.

If you reserve a spot and later find you need to cancel, please let us know ASAP so we can give the spot to someone on the waiting list.
