What's New?

January 8, 2022 – Upcoming Meeting

Topic: After a year plus of Zoom, where do we go from here?  - Part II

As we did in October, we'll take a look at the results from our survey to see the many creative ways that the guilds found to share their members' work and raise funds for the guild.  Quilt shows and auctions have been the mainstay for many years, but with today's Covid protocol issues, many of you found ways to "change it up" and still accomplish your fund-raising goals.  Some have exceeded them! 

If you have additional ideas and/or would like to share what your Guild has done, please contact Pam Overton at pam@travelingquilters.com.

Fire Relief Efforts

WE CARE in Grass Valley CA

Collects children’s quilts & pillowcases for numerous groups to be given to schoolchildren.  Group was organized in August 2015 in response to the Butte Fire in Calaveras County; now a national group which provided over 3,500 quilts for students in 16 counties in California; plus 100 quilts to Phoenix, Oregon. Currently they have approximately 1,000 quilts on hand, of which 25% are for boys; the need is for quilts for boys grade K-12, and children’s pillowcases.

DIXIE FIRE

The need at this time is for larger (twin +) quilts for men, boys, and generic (they received children’s quilt through Project Linus).  They are putting pillowcases with the quilts as they are given out, so coordinating pillowcases are helpful; also more pillowcases are needed.

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.
