CCQ garage sale update

ThreadCCQ volunteers gathered the other day to organize the items we’ll be selling at the September 10th all-quilting garage sale. Here are some of the things you’ll find:

  • Tables full of cotton fabric, sorted by color.
  • Boxes of thread: cotton, cotton/poly, hand quilting, perle cotton, serger, etc.
  • Dozens of UFOs, all marked with their size so you’ll know how much backing/batting is needed.
  • Quilt patterns, tools, notions, and books.

The sale will be held on Saturday, September 10th, 9 am to 4:30 pm at the St. Francis Church Parish Hall in Wilsonville, right off I-5 at the Charbonneau exit. Please download our flyer for details.

All proceeds from the sale will go to support the CCQ prison quilting program.

Save the date: CCQ “all quilting” garage sale

garage sale flyerSave the date: September 10th, 2016. We know that’s a long ways off; we promise to post another heads-up the week of the CCQ garage sale.

There will be fabric galore, patterns, quilt kits, tools, notions, and books. No lawn chairs. No bikes. Not even a tea cup. It’s an “all quilting” garage sale.

The venue is different this year — the St. Francis Church Parish Hall in Wilsonville, right off I-5 at the Charbonneau exit.

All proceeds from the sale will go to support the CCQ prison quilting program.
