'A Cut Above' Award
In 2010, CVQG instituted this award to recognize a member each year who we feel has gone above and beyond to help make our Quilt Guild special. Sometimes that is in the form of leadership, sometimes it’s that person you can always count on to step up and help. Having monthly quilt meetings and a yearly quilt show requires so much energy and effort- we’re pleased to recognize one more member who is ‘A Cut Above.’

2021 ‘A Cut Above’
Glenda Price is our 2021 ‘A Cut Above’ winner. She truly represents all that is good about our guild. From the very beginning of the guild (yes, she is a charter member) until today, she has always been ready to say “I’ll do that!”
We have so many fun activities to participate in as part of our guild family. If there’s fun to be had- bees, retreats, lunch- she’s there. If there’s a project to work on- charity quilts, placemats, school bags for hurricane victims, Quilted Stories- she’s there, and generously so. She is part of the very fabric of our guild. Her hands are never still. Bobbie said she was so inspired when she became a member by how productive our Glenda always is.
When it comes to ready volunteering, she’s always there too. Janice distributed a survey when she was getting Quilted Stories off the ground, asking which of various jobs we’d be willing to help with. Beside ‘making bags’, Glenda said, “I’ll make all of them.” And she made dozens of the quilts as well. She also made a quilt for the local animal shelter that brought in the highest bid of any we’ve ever donated. She’s made the ribbons for our quilt show, and more charity quilts than you could count. Kathy Theut said that when Glenda said she’d make something you had it the next day!
She has always been on the board in some capacity or another, as well as her long tenure of checking quilts in and out at our Best Little Quilt Show. She was membership chair for many years. Kay said that meant her smiling face was the first thing you saw upon entering. She’s probably best known for being in charge of door prizes- a job just made for her because she loves to shop!
She also loves her great grandsons, purple, bling, and La Marina. And us. She loves us because we’re family.
And we love you too, Glenda Price.
