Outreach Volunteers are needed for Oct 16 Thousand Oaks Rotary Street Fair. The 2016 Thousand Oaks Rotary Street Fair is one of CVQ's most visible annual events, and will be here soon. We speak with dozens of people about our wonderful guild, add names to our quilt show email blast list, and attract new members! 20,000 people visit the street fair every year. Please consider sitting for a three-hour shift between 7:30 AM and 4:30 PM on Sunday October 16. It's fun and easy! The street fair is located on Moorpark Road between Wilbur Road and Thousand Oaks Blvd. Our booth is located near Lenscrafters on the east side to Moorpark Road. Please send an e-mail message to Lynn Jurss to sign up. I will be at the September meeting to take sign ups.

Conejo Valley Quilters meetings
September 19, 2016: Alissa Haight Carlton, cofounder of The Modern Quilt Guild presents "What Is Modern Quilting?"
From design elements to the online community, learn about the Aesthetic of Modern Quilting, where it comes from, what it is, and where it’s headed.
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!
