Vintage to Vanguard

2017 Opportunity Quilt Here are a few of the highlights of our show:

Date: September 9 & 10, 2017

Location: Cal State Channel Islands

Quilt show planning meeting: Aug 14 at 7 PM at Chris' home. All are invited! The final meeting before the show will be held on Aug 28 at Julie's home.

Three featured artists: Thimbles 'n Threads (local chapter of the Appliqué Society), Ventura Modern Quilt Guild, and Extreme Quilters art quilters.

Themed quilters showcases: Presented by you, our members! For printable quilt acquisition instructions, click here.

Quilt show challenge: This year Conejo Valley Quilters challenges its members to create a small quilt to depict the history of quilting. Members can find further details to create their own "Vintage to Vanguard" quilt by clicking here.

Quilts for sale: Too many quilts that you don’t know what to do with? Or a UFO quilt that is no longer your favorite? Quilts for Sale is the answer! Any quilts you wish to sell at the show will return a portion of the proceeds to you (to buy more fabric!) and a portion will go to the Guild.

Boutique: Many small gift items for sale.

Demos: Learn new quilting techniques daily.

Opportunity quilt raffle ticket sales: Thank you to everyone who volunteered to work at Cotton & Chocolate during the Southern California Quilters Run! We earned $305 and invited hundreds of people to our show! Could not have done it without all of you! We also made $105 at the July 17th Guild Meeting! We have earned a total of $734 so far!

More help is needed during the Ventura County Fair on the following days!

  • Thursday, 8-3, 2 to 5
  • Sunday, 8-6, 11 to 2
  • Wednesday, 8-9, 11 to 2 and 2 to 5
