Welcome to the San Francisco Quilters Guild

The San Francisco Quilters Guild has embraced new forms of community while our usual in-person activities are on hold during the pandemic. Please stay safe—and stay connected with your fellow quilters—through these guild initiatives:

Our Tuesday September 21st meeting will feature a talk by Lisa Thorpe on Photo to Fabric: Design in the Palm of Your Hand. Free to members, $5 to nonmembersMembers will find the Zoom link under the Members Only tab and will also receive the link via eBlast.  Nonmembers may pay a $5 guest fee and register using this link.

Sew & Tell is now part of every monthly meeting. If you’d like to share your work, please email photos to Judith Epstein-Williams no later than midnight on the Tuesday before each meeting. Judy’s contact info is in the Membership Directory if you have questions.

SFQG members get free access to two days of Zoom demonstrations by 18 quilt teachers, featuring a wide variety of techniques and styles, from traditional to modern to art quilting. Organized by the Global Quilt Connection, the All Star Virtual Sampler Platter takes place from noon–3 p.m. (Pacific) on Saturday October 2nd and Sunday October 3rd. Come when you can, stay as long as you like! Click here for details about this two-day event, and download this PDF for a list of teachers and the topics of their presentations.

Participants who donate $10 to the guild receive a UFO Mystery Bag with an incomplete fabric project for you to finish. Attend a free Virtual Sewcial on October 9th for advice and camaraderie as you sew. Complete your project by December 7th to be featured in our monthly Sew & Tell and to be entered in a drawing for a gift certificate to a nearby fabric shop. Details here. You can pick up a Mystery Bag at Curbside Community Outreach on August 21st, September 4th and September 18th, or contact Maren.

Curbside Outreach takes place on the first and third Saturdays of each month (unless a stay-at-home order is reimposed). See dates via the Calendar tab, and click here for more info.
