Sewcials held at the Police Academy, 350 Amber Drive, San Francisco.
See map below or Click here for map/directions.
Sewcials are an important part of SFQG. Here’s where we learn new techniques, and relearn those old techniques (I don’t remember how we do…), share our creativity with each other and just have fun.
Please pay when you sign up in advance for Sewcials.
A supply list will be provided when you sign up. Arrive about 15 minutes before the start of the workshop (9:45 am) to set up and get directions so that we can begin on time. Please remember that there are no refunds for cancellations.
For the comfort of all, please attend Sewcials “fragrance-free.”

Community Outreach & Postcards
The Outreach Committee has twenty-nine quilts ready for quilting – or almost ready. Several are twin or double size. The rest are adult lap or nap size. Quiltworks has kindly offered to quilt one of our tops each month. That leaves the rest up to us.To help move these quilts out to folks who can use them, this Sewcial will be a combined effort – post cards and Community Outreach. Come and learn how to finish a quilt envelope style (a.k.a. as “Birthing a Quilt”) or how to prep a quilt for tying, including pin basting and actual tying. You will need to bring your sewing machine and the usual tools (extension cord, cutting board, rotary cutter, rulers, needles, seam ripper, etc.). If you don’t want to bring your machine, we’ll still have things for you to do.
Instructions for Postcards can be found here.
