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. We’re going to try something different – alternate quilting classes and open studio. Sometimes that’s just what we need -- an extra month to finish what we learned in class last month. If you have any ideas of what you might like to learn at a Sewcial, or would like to share your expertise in teaching a Sewcial feel free to contact Jay Beatty at (415) 647-1283 or email him at email@example.com.
Please pay when you sign up in advance for Sewcials, or contact Jay Beatty (415) 647-1283. 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.

1st Annual Opportunity Quilt
Instructor: Catherine Sherman
Saturday, June 22, 2013 - 10 am - 4 pm
Pattern: Tree Of Life
Instructors: Tish Chung
This “Tree of Life” is a contemporary tree that you can easily make using any applique technique: fusible, machine or hand applique. Your finished panel can then be used in a quilt, made into a pillow, or incorporated into a tote bag.
Saturday, July 20, 2013 - 10am – 4pm
Instructor: Judy Woodfill
We all “collect” theme fabrics, don’t we? Cats, dogs, flowers, bugs, vegetables, zoo animals, etc. Here’s a way to present them in a whole new “light.” What do windows let in? Light and sunshine. Using half-square triangles we will create the illusion of light filtering through windows on your chosen subject. It could be anything . . . here’s a couple of suggestions: Windows on the backyard (bugs), Windows on the Nursery (baby quilt), Windows on the Jungle, on the Bouquets, on the Zoo – whatever you can imagine! In 2005, Judy won a blue ribbon for her quilt: Underwater Windows featuring whales, dolphins, fish, otters, and turtles to name a few.

Cut, Sew, Done !!
Instructors: Tish Chung
CUT, SEW, DONE! is easy piecing, no binding and your quilt will be done in no time! This faux cathedral windows is perfect for a variety of themes and fabrics (ie: batiks, ethnic fabrics, children’s themes, holidays, etc), is a great stash-buster, and wonderful to make for gifts. And, you can make it any size you want!
We have a tremendous amount of Quilting knowledge and experience within our membership. We're always looking for instructors to share their expertise and secrets. It's great to have instructors from outside the guild, but it's very rewarding to take classes from our own members. The Sewcial Committee is beginning to schedule Saturday Sewcials 2013. We'd love to hear your ideas for the Sewcials. Whether it's something you'd like to learn or something you'd like to teach please let us know:
