The Colorado Valley Quilt Guild
CVQG was founded in 1998 with 70 charter members. We currently have 129 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 First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 1215 Von Minden Rd., 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.
CVQG President, Janet, presents annual "A Cut Above Award" to Jo at the September meeting.
A charter member of CVQG, Jo served in a number of areas including President, Vice President, Community Service, Program Chair, Parliamentarian. Wrangler, St Mark’s Quilt Chair, and is currently 3rd Vice President. She is a strong promoter of all guild activities including our annual quilt show set-up; helps with quilting demonstrations at various venues such as Winedale, the Fayette County Fair and the Czech Heritage Center. She is dedicated to educating the public on the history and importance of quilting, and always promotes our guild. She led the hanging of Quilts-on-the-Square the past three years as well as being active in the Tuesday Day and Thursday Night Bees, travels to other guilds to sell raffle tickets and is an active volunteer at The Texas Quilt Museum. She continues to develop skills in quilting by participating in workshops sponsored by CVQG.
Jo is definitely a guild member who is “a cut above” and will continue to support and serve the guild in whatever capacity is needed.
