September Silent Auction - Save the Date - September 13, 2022 9:30-12:00

Plans are coming together for our big fundraiser...the September Silent Auction. How can you help?

We will need lots of help as the event approaches and on the actual day of the event but even now you can participate by soliciting and gathering donations and by spreading the word to all of your connections in the community.

Who can you invite? Not just quilters... but book clubs, neighborhood friends, walking can even tell your hairstylist or your doctor!

The items for sale that day will appeal to a variety of interests and shoppers. What can you donate?

You can solicit donations from local stores. You can donate extra tickets you have for sporting events or theatre. You can gather up books, patterns, fabric or notions. We will also have some vintage quilts for auction so perhaps you

have one you'd like to send to a new home. You can bring your items to the next guild meeting and place them in the basket at our Ways and Means table.

If you can't make it to a meeting, please contact Susan Stanchfield by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 650.766.8085 and she'll be happy to arrange a pick up time for your donations.

Thanks in advance for making this event the biggest and best EVER!

CUDDLE QUILT, April 2022

Cuddle likes to say, “Thank You!” And we do it a lot because we work with such a giving group of quilters. When we give all your projects to the organizations that we help, we find ourselves being thanked by them. All of these groups are represented by people who repeatedly tell us how beautiful and generous our donations are.

Cuddle is kind of the sandwich filling between the makers and the receivers of these projects. What a great place to be! We are always saying that we have the best job in the guild…again thanks to you.

We attempt to thank you in more tangible ways by having our “sales.” Even then many of you “overpay” to help us buy batting.

El Camino Quilter’s Quiltlet Banner

Our guild quiltlet display will hang at our meetings and all quilt functions (such as quilt shows). The goal is for every member to be represented by a quiltlet in addition to your friendship group’s quiltlet.

Your quiltlet is an 81⁄2“ finished square that is pieced, appliquéd, fused, embroidered, or created using any method you wish. Fabrics, colors and techniques used are up to you; let your imagination run wild. Use a design that relates to your interests or that you just like.

Use muslin or other light colored fabric for backing. Write your name, date you joined the guild, and any other pertinent information you wish on the back or make a label. Use any batting you wish.

Cut 2” strips for the binding (approximately 77” in length and 1” folded). Bind the top and bottom as for a quilt. Cut the remaining binding into 2 equal strips about 281⁄2” long. Bind the sides leaving a 10” extension on each corner. Finish these ties by top stitching or whip stitching.
