October 16 Thousand Oaks Rotary Street Fair Update! Fall is in the air, and that means the Thousand Oaks Rotary Street Fair is just around the corner. CVQ will be hosting a booth in front of Jack-in-the-Box and Lenscrafters on Moorpark Road from 9 AM to 4 PM on Sunday October 16. This huge family event attracts about 20,000 people and provides an opportunity to get the CVQ name out there. If you are interested in telling community members about quilting, and our wonderful guild, please contact Lynn Jurss. We have a few volunteer spots available.
Help Teach elementary school children how to sew! Do you enjoy working with older elementary school children? Would you love to share you knowledge of sewing and quilting? Mrs Joyce Wheatly, 4th grade teacher at Acacia Elementary school in Thousand Oaks is looking for one or more adults to help her during "Genius Hour" one day per week from 8:20- 9:20 am from mid October for 6 weeks. I did this for 2 terms last year. I can tell you it was delightful. Mrs Wheatly is a wonderful and dedicated teacher with a heart of gold, and her students are an absolute delight. What better way to reach out to the community, that to impart a love of sewing to children? If you are interested, please contact Lynn Jurss or Mrs Wheatly directly.
Conejo Valley Quilters meetings
October 17, 2016: Karen Witt presents "What To Do with those UFOs"
It's time to look at all those unfinished projects and prioritize what should be finished and what should be passed on and to whom. Then, we'll discuss organization of time, space and even personal energy. When you prioritize and organize, those UFO's will disappear! Karen's presentation includes a trunk show of quilts made over the last twenty five years, some that were worth the time and energy to finish and those that weren't!
