Workshops & Sewcials

The guild offers several opportunities for learning and camaraderie. Sewials are free get-togethers where members learn a skill or technique from a fellow SFQG member, pick up tips and tricks, build friendships and have fun. Workshops present the specialties of quilt professionals from California, around the country and beyond, and charge a fee. In addition, occasional Community Outreach Sewcials allow members to work together on charitable projects.

If you have questions about Sewcials or would like to teach a free class, please get in touch with Maren Larsen. Please direct questions about fee-based workshops to Barb Strick or Sam McIlraith. And contact Adrienne Hickman or Jessica Church about Community Outreach. Their contact information is in the Membership Directory.
