We’d love for you and your families to join us for our second annual event. We had such a great time last year, we’re doing it again.

The Colorado Quilting Council is hosting this family-friendly event to encourage Colorado youth to enjoy learning about quilting and related sewing arts.

The event is being held at the South Fellowship Church in Littleton at 6560 South Broadway. From 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. We’ll have giveaways, a raffle, make & take projects, a presentation, food, and fun.

This year we’ll be giving away an American girl doll complete with her very own mini quilt. And our grand prize is a brand new sewing machine donated by Costco.

Come join the fun and learn about CQC. Don’t forget to bring any project that you’d like to show us. We look forward to seeing you.
