Canyon has all types of special events. They are different each year, and we are always looking for help deciding what they should be. So please let us know if you’d like to help with those decisions.
Look through these events and pick those that look like fun! Better yet, attend them all!
Sit and Sew in April will be at Sewing Machines Plus from 10-4. The store has a fabulous work room where everyone will have their own table. The store is located at 4606 Mission Bay Drive.
Come join us and enjoy the day with sewing and some fun. We will have games, and you could win a $50 or $25 gift certificate. Woo hoo!!
Members and friends are $15, and you can pay when you arrive.
May 7 – May 10
Canyon’s annual retreat at Vina De Lestonnac in Temecula. This is an wonderful opportunity to leave town for a few days, be fed incredibly delicious meals in a gorgeous setting, with no obligations except to have fun with your friends. We can sew into the late night, wake up and start again as early as we want, or sleep in and relax! Make sure you sign up early, as spaces are limited.
The 2018 Canyon Challenge theme will be revealed at this meeting. Don’t miss it! Get a head start on making your prize winning quilt that will show at both the November Canyon meeting and at Visions Art Museum in 2019!
Donate one of your own beautiful creations to Canyon. These donated quilts will be put up for sale at the San Diego Quilt Show and ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO CANYON! Deadline for donation is this month, at the June meeting!
June 2 – July 4
The Del Mar Fair hits town in June. Canyon Quilters is volunteering to manage the quilting booth in the Craft and Needlework booth at the San Diego County Fair. Sign up to volunteer to help, or just come to the fair and have fun!
SECOND CHANCE AUCTION! Who doesn’t love to shop? Particularly at this very special auction where there will be plenty of unfinished quilt tops, orpham blocks ready to sew together, kits with patterns and fabric – all at bargain prices.
And if you want to clean out your sewing stash to make room for more, this could be the perfect time! Just bring donations to any Canyon meeting
Come to this work party, where you can choose to support any of Canyon’s three philanthropic organizations. You can cut, sew or bind, however you want to spend your time. Bring your sewing kit and a machine if you want to piece or quilt. And plan to have some fun!
Challenge quilts to be revealed at this special meeting. Theme and rules announced in June.
This is also the night of the Canyon pot luck dinner. It is a wonderful social occasion where you can chat with friends, meet new friends, and break all the rules and eat dessert first!
