What We Do…
Florida Cabin Fever Quilters Guild opened its doors to Central Florida almost 30 years ago. Since that time we have hosted several quilt shows and our members have produced countless numbers of quilts for personal use as well as for community service. Some of our annual programs include a mystery quilt, a challenge quilt and an original 12-month block of the month program which is available to non-members as well. We host an annual 3 day retreat and have at least two bus trips per year to a quilt show or other quilt related activity. At least 2-3 times per year – we bring in national teachers to host workshops and lectures. Some of our past teachers have included: Ricky Timms, Sue Nickels, Esterita Austin, Jan Krentz, Karen F. Buckley, Suzanne Marshall, Eric Drexler, and most lately, Karol Kusmaul– just to name a few.

Our August meeting is your opportunity to put your slicing and dicing skills to the test to benefit our 2015 Quilt Show Boutique! We’ll have a fun night of cutting charm squares, 10″ squares, and fat quarters while enjoying each others’ company and maybe earning a prize or two. Rumor has it that there may be an AccuQuilt GO cutter (or two) plus dies for cutting squares, strips, triangles, and some popular applique shapes, so if you ever wondered how this nifty die-cutting machine works, this is your chance to try one out. Bring a cutting mat, rotary cutter and ruler if you can. Oh yeah…FABRIC…bring FABRIC!
Donation Quilt Update:
Our beautiful 2015 Quilt Fever donation quilt, Dutch Kaleidoscope, will be at Wandering Stitches from July 16 through August 16. This is during the Row-by-Row and the Toscana Blending Shop Hops, so there should be lots of quilt lovers from all over Florida anxious to buy raffle tickets! Volunteers to chaperone the quilt, and sell raffle tickets, are still needed for some dates – please contact Roberta Duval if you are able to help out with this.
