BEES
Busy, Busy, Busy…Cut, snip, sew….. If you love quilting, talking about quilting, working with others on quilts you NEED a BEE!

Centreville CQU has a wide variety of bees available for you. Some meet during the day and some meet evenings. All you need to do is contact Lessa Porter and we’ll either find you one or we can start a new one. It’s always more fun to quilt with others – especially if someone brings chocolate!

There is an Open Bee (open to all) that meets at Colin Powell Elementary School on Thursday evenings (Sept. – Jun.) when there is not a CQU meeting. The bee meets in the cafeteria from 7 – 9 p.m. Questions?  Contact Lessa at maporter@deloitte.com

BLOCK OF THE MONTH
Members make a block(s) according to the instructions provided, and enter it into a drawing.  You enter your name for each block submitted.  The winner gets the blocks that were submitted. BOM directions for 2014-2015 and following years can be found in the newsletters.

COMMUNITY SERVICE
Centreville QU members work on a number of community service projects each year. Currently members make quilts for local hospitals, nursing homes, and our Armed Forces; stuffed bears and baby hats for Fair Oaks Hospital, and Reach for Recovery Bags for the American Cancer Society. New for the 2016-2017 year, we will be making Surgery Dolls. In addition, we collect Box Tops for Education to donate to Colin Powell Elementary School, where our guild meets.  For information about our community service projects, click HERE. Questions?
