Meet The Teachers

Meet The Teachers is an annual event coordinated by SCCQG for member guild Program Chairs to introduce them to affiliate member teachers. 

The April 10th, 2021, Meet The Teachers event via Zoom was a success! Twenty nine teachers presented short overall introductions of themselves and their specialties. Teachers were then given individual break-out rooms in Zoom (for 30 minutes), allowing guild reps to visit and chat with teachers privately and individually. Guild reps were able to move from one teacher’s break-out room to another, similar to going booth to booth at past events.

Many compliments were received from attending teachers and guild members. The SCCQG Tech Team kept things moving smoothly and the teachers were quite creative in their presentations. It was almost like being with them in person, without the long drive and the crowds. Many said they hope to have MTT virtual again in 2022.

Suggestions received were that break-out room sessions could have been longer, some teachers were still chatting with guild reps at the end of the 30 minutes. Many people mentioned that attendance stayed strong throughout the session versus in-person, where the afternoon sessions were often less attended.

This Teacher comment sums up most comments received:

A big "Thank You!" to you and your team for all the time and effort that went into the SCCQG Meet The Teachers Meeting. We've all had to step out of our comfort zone this past year, but in doing so we've enabled new opportunities. Thank you for saying "yes" to new opportunities!

Generally speaking, it was a very good experience. Sue, you were a wonderful and supportive moderator. Not an easy position, but you rocked it.

I think the breakout rooms were a big win. I really appreciated being able to talk with interested parties.

Share Guild Speakers and Workshops
Some guilds are opening their meetings and workshops to non-guild members to join them for lectures and workshops . . . and some of those new people are joining the guild! It occurred to us that we could provide a mechanism for each of the guilds to list their upcoming speakers and workshops so that others can join their meetings/workshops. This will provide one location where guild members can go to see who is speaking, when and where.  In this time of virtual meetings, its a great opportunity to "visit" other guilds virtually! 

To list your upcoming speakers and their workshops, click here. Submit a listing for each teacher, but please only list the next three months (at this time, through April 2021). As you list your upcoming speakers, please remember to check your contract with them to ensure the contract allows guests. If the contract indicates the lecture is for members only, please do not list them here. 

Here's the fun part, click here, to view the list of speakers and workshops.  Yes, it updates in realtime as it's a Google Form. It's a work in progress so feel free to contact us at info@sccqg.org if you have some suggestions on information that should be added to the form (although we're trying to keep it pretty simple).

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.
