How do I become a member?
To become an official member, just submit a membership form with your annual $10 dues to Jennie H. These dues go towards club expenses and prizes for swaps and challenges. Dues will also go towards materials needed for charity quilts. You are welcomed to join us at two meetings before you decide if you want to become a member. Perks of membership includes a membership card which gives you onetime discounts to local Columbus quilt shops.

What does the CMQ do?
We have several on-going projects, including:
A Swap Team - several times a year our swap team develops a new project for us to participate in (about two per year)
Sewing Challenges – A fun opportunity to try something new and show it off!
Demos – member and special guests share quilty skills
Sew-Ins - we have quarterly sew-ins.
Charity sewing projects – we generally have something brewing
Road Trips - We occasionally go on shopping trips to exciting quilty destinations!
