More Celebration Updates!

The Third Cordova Northwind Quilters' Guild Quilt Show

The party has started!  Make sure to drop by the City Center and see our celebratory Quilt Show!  Hats off to Shannon E. and her committee for a job well done!  Thanks to the city staff who worked hard to make this happen for us!  Be sure to visit the quilts in the gallery before Friday evening, as those quilts will be taken down to accommodate the classes held there over the weekend!

Membership Potluck and This n' That Trunk Show

Be sure to contact Diane U. about participating in the potluck dinner on Friday, July 29th at 6:30 pm in the Atrium.  Immediately following dinner, our national instructors will be introduced and Sherri Falls will present her trunk show!

Both of our instructors, Roseann Kermes and Sherri Falls will have items for purchase available after the trunk show.  They can accept credit cards, checks and cash (if it is the exact change).

Class Assignments

Everything was done to make sure that you were scheduled with the quilters you identified.  We have 20 participants and they have been divided into two groups.  The Green Group will begin Saturday with Sherri Falls and the Blue Group will be with Roseann Kermes.  On Sunday, the groups will rotate.  Class assignments are as follows:

Green Group-Patchwork/Wool             Blue Group-Wool/Patchwork
 Valerie Covel                                         Terri Stavig
 Barb Hanson                                         Diane Ujioka
 Terry Bonnell                                         Marianne Pitchford
 Susie Scutt                                            Lila Koplin
 Shannon Evans                                     Neva Nolan
 Sam Greenwood                                   Barb Cave
 Kay Adams                                            Erica Swenson
 Christina Schlegel                                 Cece Wiese
 Jackie Ladd                                           Tori Baker
 Kim Kiml                                                Denna Francischetti

Class Preparation and Schedule

This information can be found on this post.
A reminder that the Green Group should bring their sewing machine, equipment and supplies Friday evening in order to set up immediately following the evening program.  The classroom will have both a cutting and pressing station, so it is not necessary to bring irons, ironing boards and cutting mats. The Blue group needs to bring the same items on Saturday to set up after 4:00 while the first group is cleaning up.


Participants are encouraged to bring snacks to share.  Bring them to the kitchen each morning.  Barb H., Marianne P. and Lila K will see that each classroom has a well supplied snack table.  We made the decision to NOT make coffee every morning, as fresh coffee is available across the street or you are welcome to bring your own! We have a special prize for the quilter that brings the most snacks to share! ;-)

Instagram Users

We have created a hashtag ... it is ... #cnwq30 ... please use it as you prepare and participant in this event!  It is a way for us to create our own photo album!  How fun is that?

All for now!  See you soon!  Party on!

Marianne Pitchford, Barb Hanson and Lila Koplin will be organizing snacks for the classrooms.  We ask that if you donate snacks, bring enough for use in both classrooms.  Deliver snacks to the kitchen.  They will set them up on tables in each classroom.  Thanks in advance for contributing ... snacks make every event more fun!  During our Wrap-Up on Sunday, a special door prize will be given to our Party Snack Champion!

Class Preparation

Wool Applique' with Roseann Kermes

Participants need to bring the following:

  • #9 embroidery needles
  • small applique' pins

  • basting glue, such as Roxann's or Jilily
  • $45.00 payment for kits  

Crafty Basket and Patchwork Fun with Sherri Falls

  • Sherri suggests that participants have their projects cut out before class begins.  That way we can spend most of our time sewing!
  • Bring all supplies and equipment listed for the patterns or design you've chosen.
  • A cutting and pressing section will be set up for use in the room.
  • Participants need to bring the usual equipment (rotary cutters, rulers, thread, etc) required for piecing.
