The Colorado Valley Quilt Guild (CVQG) was founded in 1998 with 70 charter members. We currently have 135 members who come from counties along the Colorado River valley including Fayette, Colorado, Bastrop, Lee & Lavaca.
We meet the 4th Tuesday of each month at 10 a.m. in the odd months & 7 p.m. in even months at The Randolph Recreation Center, 653 E. Pearl Street, La Grange.
We host “The Best Little Quilt Show in Texas” the last Friday & Saturday in February & have three retreats each year & sponsor a bus to the International Quilt Festival in Houston.
Community service has always been a major part of guild activities with projects such as small quilts for area nursing homes & child advocacy groups. CVQG supports the Fayette County Country fair by providing a judge for the quilt department. Our Speaker’s Bureau Committee provides speakers & related services for area non-profit organizations as well as quilting demonstrations at the Fair, Czechfest and Winedale Historical Center. Volunteers from the guild help change the quilt exhibits in the Texas Quilt Museum and serve as docents to visitors to the museum.
