CQG Home


Sunday January 15th, 2023 from 1:30 – 3:30 (arrive around 1 pm to meet and greet).  This meeting will be held in the gymnasium of the Charlton Baptist Church. Click for directions.  Our theme is “Cabin Fever” and we will have refreshments and Show and Tell.  Bring your favourite pincushion and the story that goes along with it.


The next meeting is Saturday January 21st, 2023, from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm in the Community Room of the Charlton Library, located at 40 Main Street, Charlton MA.  The challenge for this meeting is a fabric challenge – Each attendee was given an 1/8 yard of a ‘modern’ fabric to be used as inspiration for their quilted item. There are a few pieces left. Please contact Sue T  if you want to participate and didn’t get the fabric.

And, we have selected our April challenge. Each participant will bring a half-yard of a ‘modern’ fabric and Monique will lead us in a game of ‘snip, rip, and drop.’ Sound like great fun! Thanks, Monique.
If you have any questions, please drop me an email, see me at our next CQG meeting on Jan 15th, or see me at Slow Stitching on Fridays. – Sue T.


Slow Stitching  –  Slow stitch, embroider, cut out pattern pieces – any type of sewing tasks NOT using a machine –  with your quilting friends most Fridays at 9:30 am in the Community Room of the Charlton Public Library. NO machines allowed. Sometimes on Outreach days the slow stitchers mosey over to the Charlton Grange and help sew or knot quilts for community organizations. Machines ARE allowed for Outreach!  Check your newsletter for dates and times for Outreach.

Zoom Tuesday Evening Sew Along – Every Tuesday evening from 7 to 9 pm guild quilters and friends log on to the sew-along to get some piecing, cutting, hand-stitching or machine-sewing accomplished while enjoying conversation, sharing stories and learning from each other.  Please ask about joining – or trying this out – at the monthly guild meeting (January – no December meeting) if you are interested.

Open Sew / Workshops – Are you in need of a little help to keep your project moving? Perhaps, you want to sew with a few quilting friends for a few hours. If so,
come to an Open Sew / Workshop where there will be an experienced quilter on hand to help you. Cornerstone Quilters Guild is fortunate to have quilters of all experience levels and expertise in the many facets of quiltmaking. We have set aside the first Saturday of January, February, April and May for open sews where members can bring their questions, get some advice, and hopefully finish up a few of those projects that have been sitting idle. All open sews will be held at the Community Room at the Charlton Library from 10 am to 2 pm. You may reserve a space by visiting the Workshop table at our guild meetings or by emailing Sue T. 

Workshop – At the open sew on January 7th, Kathy W.  and Sue T. will be delving into hand piecing and will have lots of samples, tips and techniques for anyone interested in this form of slow stitching – great for those long winter nights. Ros R will be available to
help out with other questions you may have.
If you have any questions, please contact either Ros R or Sue T.
