              EXCITING NEW MONTHLY CHALLENGE!         


  • CPQ members now have a great opportunity to support our philanthropic committees and possible win a monthly prize at the same time!! Sandra Ferguson, our Philanthropic Director, is promoting a new monthly challenge. Every month, members are challenged to make a pillowcase for Sweet Dreams, an Isolette for Loving Hands, a pet bed for Paws for a Cause, a pillowcase for Blocks for the Brave (must use their kit for these), and donate one can food or toiletry/cleaning item for the RMC House. Kits are available for these items, however, using your stash is a great way to use up some extra fabric you may have. Blocks for the Braves has particular fabric and pattern to accommodate the large quilts they donate to our veterans with PTSD so they do require using their kit (Sandra or Donna Haynes will have BFB kits).

    Here's the scoop:

  • Place your 5 items in a plastic bag with "CPQ" and your name on the bag.
  • Your items can be dropped off at Cherry Berry anytime.
  • You can drop off at Sandra's house on the morning of the monthly guild meetings (3rd Thurs ) between 10am - Noon.
  • You can also pick up Kits at Sandra's house during the above time or call and make arrangements with her.
There will be a drawing during our general meeting each month and the winner might be you!!! Fun, exciting, all while supporting our philanthropic programs at the same time.

Thank you for your support,
Sandra Ferguson, Director of Philanthropy

CPQ Small Groups
Would you like to reach out to guild members, meet new people, socialize, all while sewing and creating things you're passionate about, without leaving your home?  Welcome to CPQ Small Groups.  This is how it works.  Select a group you'd like to join , register (it's free to members), and just like that you are in a small group. There will be a leader in each group to help answer questions and open and close the meetings.  The group will pick a day and time to meet.  You can meet weekly, bi weekly or monthly.  And there you have it, it is just like your friends are sitting around your sewing table, chatting, helping, showing off projects.  You can even change that load of laundry or make a snack, then head back to the group.  Group times will be fixed for each meeting.  It's like a weekly sewing group you're in every week, same time, same place. (or every other week, or monthly, you choose)
To check out our CPQ Small Group availability and to register, hop on over to the Members Only tab on the left side of the home page, under Small Groups.
