Happy Birthday CTQG!
We are celebrating our 8th birthday at our guild meeting on Monday, August 25th! Of course to celebrate we need food and since quilters have some of the best recipes known to womankind we are asking everyone to bring a dish to pass. Bring a dish you love to make (along with a serving utensil) and a beverage for yourself. From past experience some of these delicious dishes get bragging rites and are talked about the rest of the year. The guild will provide paper plates and silverware. We will plan on eating at 7PM sharp but plan on coming early to renew your membership, help set up tables, look at magazines for sale and to just hang out and visit with each other. Looking forward to seeing everyone to celebrate OUR birthday!!!!
Thursday Sewing Group
Our Guild members have the opportunity to meet every Thursday for a "Thursday Sewcial" at Mills Chapel Baptist Church from 10:00-2:00. It is a great time to share ideas and socialize while working on projects. Stop in any time and don't forget to bring a lunch. The first Thursday of every month will be dedicated to working on our Compassion quilts.

Girl Scouts learn to Quilt
Here are the pictures from the Girl Scout camp. We made 43 squares total with 23 girls representing 5 different troops for the local area. These are Cadet scouts and sewed for 5 days.
Joanne Schreptfer worked with me to complete squares. She volunteered her time which I so appreciated. This quilt will be donated to the Veterans at Ft. McPherson.
It’s that time of the year again! August begins the new Guild year and your renewal form and money are due. You can turn both in this Monday, Aug. 25, at our Birthday Party.
Please print off a form here: Membership Form If you are using a check, please make it payable to Common Threads Quilters Guild for $24. You can add a donation, if you would like, but be sure to let us know what you want it designated for.

Compassion Quilt recipient
Jeffre Coggin, cancer patient, ( cousin of Jo Glass' husband Dan, and friend of Colette Parent-Hay's husband Freddie) displays the compassion quilt he received from the CTQG in May. The quilt was donated to CT by Newnan Heartstrings. At the time he was given the quilt, he was told "We hope this will be like being hugged by 50 women you don't know, but who want you to be comfortable while undergoing your treatments". he was very touched, and grateful, as was his family.
