UCC Banner
When the United Church of Christ (UCC) women's group in Endeavor approached the CCQG to hire them to made a  banner for their sanctuary - it was the perfect time for the organization to make and donate one for all the UCC church has done for our guild over the past years. 
   When the Endeavor Academy closed, our guild was without a central location for our monthly meetings.  Members of the UCC graciously offered their fellowship hall for our needs.  We have been meeting there since January 2006.
   Presenting the banner for CCQG is Jane Oravetz and accepting for the UCC is Bev Mueller.

              term quiltJ Term Quilt  Montello High School students came back from winter break to a change of pace with 'J-Term' in which they were able to choose from specialized workshops and seminars which were two weeks in length.
   In one of the workshops, students learned about the Barn Quilts of Marquette County and then made a quilt of their own to donate.  Two CCQG members helped with the quilt project by going into the classroom and sharing the skills of how to use the tools to cut their fabric, lay out a block and put it together by hand-sewing.
