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.

Upcoming Sewcials

August 23
Creating Fabric Postcards
SF Police Academy  10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The base materials to build on will be provided – you just bring fabric scraps, your sewing machine, and threads for embellishment (full supply list at Guild meeting or on website). The idea is that we make a passel of cards to sell at the Quilt Show. The catch is – if you want to take your cards home that you make at the Sewcial, they cost. Fabric Postcards are so quick to produce – we bet you go home and make dozens of them – for yourself and the Guild! Come spend a fun day creating this easy and fun project. No fee, unless you take cards home.

September 20
Embroiders’ Guild of America
SF Police Academy 10 AM – 4 PM.
If you enjoyed the Crazy Quilt Sewcial earlier this year, here's your chance to add some hand embroidery to your block. Or perhaps you have been intrigued - or frustrated - by all the handwork popping up on contemporary quilts. Join members of the San Francisco Chapter of the Embroiderers' Guild of America for a day. We'll explore the exciting new threads available, talk about the best tools and methods, and learn some versatile and fun stitches. Kit fee $15 paid at time of registration (check payable to SFEGA)
