The SFQG offers a wealth of activities that foster companionship, learning and fun for anyone in the Bay Area interested in quiltmaking and related arts.
Please visit our Calendar for a comprehensive view of all upcoming events – including details, dates and times, plus the links you’ll need to participate.
If you are interested in participating in any of our general activities, take a look at the corresponding page. Several of the chairs for our general activities host tables at our monthly meetings where you can also ask questions.
The SFQG offers two kinds of Saturday social gatherings: Outreach Sewcials and Sewcial Workshops. At Outreach Sewcials, members gather to work on charitable projects. Sewcial Workshops feature stellar teachers both from within our own guild and beyond. Learn more here, or see our Calendar for upcoming dates.
SFQG members regularly contribute quilts and pillowcases to local hospitals and other organizations through our Community Outreach program. For member convenience, we have a table at the monthly meeting and regularly scheduled Curbside Outreach – visit the calendar to see the specific dates.
A treasure trove of fabrics, orphan blocks, patterns, and quilting supplies. Contributions always welcome! Outdoor free tables will be scheduled approximately once a quarter – members looking to host a free table should contact Val Lienkaemper to schedule it.
General Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month, except in November & December, when they happen on the second Tuesday. Below are some of the things you might see at those meetings.
Bring your fabric to the Swap Table at our monthly meetings and “shop” for something new at the break. You do not need to donate to be able to shop! Contact Christine Reiter to volunteer to help.
The SFQG has a quirky way of supplying snacks at meetings: members are asked to bring treats to the meeting that happens during their birthday month. You are, of course, welcome to contribute when it’s not your birthday month, but this helps to ensure we have snacks and drinks every meeting.
If you have any questions or are interested in joining the Hospitality Team, please reach out to Charlotte Mosher, Mary Padbury, or Loretta Roddy.
November’s meeting features a live auction and cash-and-carry tables. It’s a lively fundraiser, with great finds. Invite your friends … guests are free!
Make & Take
Our December meeting features craft tables where you can learn a clever technique or make a quick project … plus there’s a holiday party.
Below are several of the activities that members have hosted in the past. If you are interested in reviving one (and being the activity chair), please work with the board to help get it going.
