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.
