CQG Elsewhere Online
Welcome to the Chelmsford Quilter's Guild Web Site. We are a large group of quilters of all experience levels and many interests. We welcome you to learn more about us through the links to the left.
February 23rd evening Meeting:
Amy Lindsay, Member in the SpotlightJoin us for a wonderful trunk show by Amy Lindsay and see over 25 of her spectacular quilts. She will focus on how her thinking and problem solving have evolved over many years as a quilter.
Amy's quilt, "Catherine Wheels", was the winner of the Viewer's Choice award at the CQG Show in 2012 and another of her beauties, "Learning Curve", was chosen to represent our Guild as part of the NEQM's 25th Anniversary celebration as well as winning an Honorable Mention at the Experimental Aviation Association's Annual Art Show. Semi-retired, Amy now concentrates on being a quilter, writer, blogger (quiltingpiecebypiece.wordpress.com) and cat lover.
More Before at 6:30 pm - Fidget Quilts, Carlene CraibFidget Quilts are made from a variety of textures and objects that dementia or Alzheimer's patients find appealing as their once busy hands search for something to occupy them. These small, simple quilts give a patient a comforting item to hold and handle as the disease progresses and their hands become more nervous and fidgety. Carlene and her granddaughters will offer you inspiring ideas and examples. Join them before the meeting at 6:30.
