Canyon's 2022 Member Challenge
Each year Canyon holds a member challenge where members create one-of-a kind quilts that uniquely express the maker’s interpretation of the challenge theme. The evening is a fun-filled event complete with voting for your favorite quilt . This is, of course, followed by prizes! Next there’s a silent auction. The evening includes lots of mingling and socializing.
The challenge theme is typically announced at the June Guild meeting.
Be sure to join the June 2022 meeting for this year’s challenge theme, as well as all the details.
The annual reveal is held at the November Guild meeting.
