Registration is open for non CJMQG members

Please contact Neva Asinari, President, with any questions and for treasurer's mailing address.

Chawne Kimber will be teaching her Small Piecing workshop to our guild on Saturday, September 17th, at Neshanic Reformed Church in Hillsborough. This is a full day workshop running front 9:00 -4:30 p.m. with 1.5 hour lunch break.

We use layouts of squares of varied sizes to explore small-scale machine piecing that preserves stamina while producing detailed work. Equipment, fabrics, basic color theory, and structural integrity are essential elements we emphasize. A full-day workshop can result in a completed mini quilt top. (advanced beginner and above)

The class is limited to 20 people. Cost per person is $80 (non refundable but transferable to another). Your payment to our treasurer reserves your spot.

By popular demand we are bringing Melanie Tuazon back to teach this class again! This half day workshop will be on Saturday, October 22, from 9:30 - 12:30 at Neshanic Reformed Church in Hillsborough.

You don't need to be a free motion master to make beautiful designs and texture on your quilts! you just need your walking foot and a little creativity! We'll explore techniques to create both planned and improvised angles and waves, then make mini quilts that can be used for placemats or pillows.

The class is limited to 20 people. Cost per person is $40 (non refundable but transferable to another). Your payment to our treasurer reserves your spot.

Please join us for the CJMQG's annual sewing retreat before the holidays! Work on WIPs, challenges, gift sewing or start a new project. It's up to you! Get ready for great conversations and lots of laughs! If you are new to the guild this is a great opportunity to for us to get to know you!
