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.

It’s time for a party!
As you all read in Roberta’s President’s Letter, our March meeting is going to be a little different. We are going to have a “Getting to Know You Game Night.” I’m relatively new to the guild and still have not met everyone and I’m betting I’m not the only one. We’re going to start off with an Extended Show and Tell. Don’t feel like you have to rush. Let’s have time to let others ask questions and check it out during social time. Then it’s Game Time! We’re going to have games, fun and prizes! One of the games is going to be an “Ugly Fabric Contest.” Everyone bring in the ugliest fabric you have in your stash. The audience will vote and the winner gets to take home some “pretty fabric.” Besides the games we’ll also have a Fabric Trade. If you wish to participate, bring in 1 yard of fabric and find someone who wants to trade with you. Trade it around as many times as you like! Oh, did I mention food? Treats will be available as well! We’ll see you there! (And don’t forget your ugly fabric!)
April 7th – Mary-Jeanine
You know her and love her – Mary-Jeanine will be here for our April 7th meeting. Topic – Stashbusters. She will bring a trunk show with lots of demonstrations of quilts and quick projects that will inspire you to dive into that beautiful stash. There will be lots of free patterns, along with a few new patterns available for purchase. She will also be teaching a workshop on Saturday, April 5th.
May 5th - Michelle Mitchell – Workshops and Lecture!
After taking Michelle’s Vest class on Saturday, May 3rd, join us on Monday night for her trunk show. Her trunk show will follow her wearable art travels through more than 20 years. She will start with a simple calico pieced jacket and end with the elaborate garments designed for competitions and the Bernina Fashion shows.
Quilt Retreat 2014
Join us again this year for our 6th annual Guild Quilt Retreat. Starting Thursday, June 26th until Sunday, June 29th we’re going to do nothing but quilt stuff! Oh, and some fun stuff. And, some food stuffs. It’ll be a great time to join in the fun of spending day and night working on UFO’s, new projects, and sharing with your quilting friends.

Donation Quilt Update:
Our 2015 Quilt Fever donation quilt top is finished. Thanks to all the people who volunteered their time to work on it. With everyone doing a little bit, it helps make the job light. We are going to have the quilt long-armed quilted and ready for display and marketing by the March meeting. Lisa from Wandering Stitches will doing the quilting!
