What's New?
Southern California Fire Victims

Is your guild organizing an effort to help victims of the recent fires in Southern California?  If so, please contact Pam Overton at pam@travelingquilters.com so that we can spread the word to all the guilds.  We're certain that many of the guilds are looking for a way to help! 

Did any of your guild members suffer a loss?  Let us know.  At the January meeting we will propose a motion to provide some funding to them from the SCCQG Disaster Fund. We are currently forming a list of potential recipients.  

The Ventura Modern Quilt Guild has launched an effort in support of the Thomas Fire Victims.  
Scott Griffin, VP of Ventura Modern Quilt Guild has designed a beautiful Perkiomen Valley Block to make as relief for Thomas Fires victims.  Click on the block name to view the size and fabric suggestions.  Choose any solids or prints you wish to use, lights and darks as indicated. All blocks go to superbuzzy (address is included on the block information file). 
There is no deadline on block submission, but we would like to get quilts assembled out to the needy folks in January and February as they begin to rebuild. The guild will assemble them into quilts for those in need after this devastating fire. VMQG will be arranging sewing and quilt finishing soon. If your guild is interested in participating in this project, please contact Scott at communications@venturamodernquiltguild.com.

Guild library survey. 

Does your guild have a library of quilt books, patterns, tools?  How is it managed?  At South Bay Quilters Guild we have an extensive library of books.  In the last couple of years we worked hard to purge some of the older, out dated, rarely (if ever) used books and donate them as we could.  But we still have a large number of books to manage and to make accessible to our members.


Our current librarian is a retired librarian.  We are grateful to have her expertise.  She has recommended that we look at purchasing available library software so that we can better manage the library.  That software would give us the ability to readily pull reports on which books are used, which are not, what area of quilting is the most popular, etc. This information will help us in purging old books and purchasing new ones.


Before we plunge in to research the various software programs out there, we thought we would ask the SCCQG guilds how they are handling their libraries.  To make it easier for the guilds to respond and for us to sift and sort the info, we have posted a survey on the SCCQG website home page.  The survey is at the bottom of this page.


We hope that each of the guild reps will take a minute to respond and let us know how you are handling your library and how you might want to improve the process.  We’ll provide survey results in the next newsletter.


Thanks in advance for your input!

Welcome to the Southern California Council of Quilt Guilds!

Welcome to the Southern California Council of Quilt Guilds (SCCQG) website. The purpose of this site is to provide council information to member guilds, business partners, and individual members.
The Southern California Council of Quilt Guilds (a 501 (c) (3) association) was organized for several purposes:
  • To foster and promote knowledge and participation in the craft/art form of quilting, patchwork, appliqué, and all other aspects of quilt making.
  • To act as an information network for quilt guilds with similar objectives in promoting continued interest in quilt making.
  • To provide a forum for cooperative endeavors among all quilt guilds in Southern California and surrounding areas.
  • To readily inform quilt guilds and individual quilters of resources available to them.
  • To encourage development of friendships state, nation, and world wide.
  • To foster education through cooperative sharing of speakers, teachers, and programs for member guilds.
  • To act as a resource for those wishing to organize new guilds.
  • To maintain a calendar for quilting events in the Southern California geographic area and to make such information readily available.
