Looks who is coming in January to our CPQ General Meeting!!! It's the Material Girlfriends, Lora Zmak & Lisa Norton. Lora and Lisa are twin sisters. They are fun, exciting, and from what we understand, great presenters. They will be doing a lecture at our January 21st Daytime General Meeting.

Twin sisters, Lisa and Lora have been sewing since they were very young. In 1999, Lisa decided to try quilting and with her neighbor Ingrid, began a block of the month program at her local quilt shop. Unknowingly, Lora, living a 1000 miles away, decided to try quilting and began a block of the month program with her friend, Inger. It’s a twin thing. The sisters took to quilting like ducks to water. As artists, it wasn’t long before the girls were making their own patterns and designs. Fast forward to 2012, the sisters began Material Girlfriends Patterns.

Please join us on January 21st at 1:30 for the Material Girlfriends lecture, Overcoming Quilting Disasters



Overcoming Quilting Disasters: Horror movies are less scary than when you have a HUGE problem with a quilt! Bleeding and shredding and tears, oh my! Chin up, my quilting friend; help has arrived. Enjoy twin sisters, Lora Zmak and Lisa Norton of as they provide you with numerous solutions to Quilting Disasters. Have a particular problem? Bring your quilt and questions and enjoy their humor and expertise. 


These two gals are fun and exciting and will have a lot of great information to share. They are quilters, designers, teachers, and twin sisters. It can't get better than that!! This CPQ lecture is free and will be entertaining. Mark your calendar and invite your friends, you won't want to miss this!!

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
