SCCQG Quarterly Meeting, October 8, 2022

Our topic this month is The Nuts and Bolts of Guild Business: A Potpourri of Topics.
Over the course of the last few years, we have had a number of how-to questions about this, that, and the other thing! At this meeting we want to spend some time talking about some of the day-to-day things that are necessary to help the guild function. To name a few - Raffle Registration, sales tax (and when it applies) and your seller's permit, updated information regarding filing state and IRS tax forms, speakers and contracts, alternate ideas instead of a speaker, and more. What questions do you have and what areas would you like to cover? Drop us an email (pam@travelingquilters.com) and let us know.
By now many, if not all, guilds are meeting again in person. Is your guild hosting hybrid meetings? If so, we hope to hear about how that is working. What challenges you've had and how you managed them. Not there yet? What's holding you back? How can we help? Perhaps the guilds that are meeting in person and hosting hybrid meetings can share their success and how they handled the challenges.
In this new world of zoom speakers, has your guild expanded your horizon of speakers? We invite you to share some of your favorites with the other guilds. It will be an open discussion and we hope everyone will jump in to share information.

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.
