Celebration...every two years, the years ending with even numbers
(2016, 2018, 2020, 2022, 2024), our state-wide quilting organization, Virginia
Consortium of Quilters (VCQ), has a grand weekend of quilting, eating, and just
plain fun! Workshops are available with teachers from across the country. Or,
you can choose to sew on your own in the 'Come Quilt with Me' room. The
workshops are wonderful, the food is wonderful, and the friendships you make and
re-establish each time, are priceless.
We are sad we needed to cancel Celebration for 2020, to keep our members safer during the Covid-19 pandemic, but we are hopeful much of the work done will smoothly transfer to 2022. Thanks to our previous president Heather Zavagnin for taking on Celebration Chair in addition to her very full job as VCQ President at that time. Committee members were Susan Price (Brochure), Karin McElvein (Quilt Challenge), Heather Zavagnin (Teachers), Phyllis Keesee & Deb Schupp (Block Lotto), Kathy McCrea (Registration), Mary Grogan, Wendy Collyer, Karin McElvein, Lynn Garver (Tag Team), Betty Blessin (Silent Auction), Elaine Breiner (Centerpieces), Elizabeth Gibson (Tote Bag Challenge), Susan Brooks & Heather Zavagnin (Raffle Items/Welcome Bags/Door Prizes), Jean Drake-George, Kathy Jolley and Signe Vaughan (Sunday Worship), Elizabeth Gibson, Karen Brewster, Robin Speck (Girls Friday) and Mary Grogan (Vendors).
