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.”
General Supply List:
In addition to Supply List for each Sewcial, please bring: extension cord, cutting board,rRotary cutter, sewing machine, rulers, fabric, etc.
Bring your lunch or there are several places to purchase within walking distance.
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.
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)

Quilt Challenge & Quiltletts- for the Quilt Show.
- Quilt Challenge – The Ocean: With the ocean at our doorstep we have a treasure trove of possibilities. The shore, the great ocean surface and the mysterious world below. Think of what you love, hate, or even fear most and use your imagination. It can be serious or amusing, though above all, HAVE FUN. Bring your ideas, imagination, fabrics, buttons, beads, yarn, fusible web, whatever strikes your fancy to use on your 20”x20” challenge quilt. Laraine Salmon will be at the Sewcial to help answer any questions.
- Quiltlet – members are invited to create a 8½” quiltlet to add to our growing Guild collection - displayed during our Quilt Show and other venues we visit as an organization. This is a wonderful way to share your personal style with and as part of the Guild and whether traditional, contemporary, art or modern – share your creative voice shine through your quiltlet. Anna Chan will be at the Sewcial to help answer any questions.
