HACK ALERT!
Guild officers, please share with your Board and guild members ASAP.
We have just learned that the hackers are at it again! Like there isn't enough going on in the world right now . . . . 

If you have seen an email that is supposedly from Sonia Das, President of SCCQG, requesting donations for the Vets, it's bogus!  DO NOT respond.

Please remember that these hacking emails usually show they are from something other than the real address of the person that is supposedly sending it. Look carefully to see where it's from. And, please, do not respond. If you have a question, please email Sonia or one of the board members at their SCCQG email address on the website. 

The SCCQG Board

Coronavirus 

As the parent organization of 98 quilt guilds across the State of California and parts of Nevada, SCCQG is providing the following information regarding CoVid19 for its member guilds so they may make informed decisions regarding their respective guilds.

The State of California declared a state of emergency on March 4, 2020.  Guidelines for gatherings of various sizes have been issued by the California Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The state’s public health experts have determined that gatherings should be postponed or canceled across the state until at least the end of March.  The CDC has recommended that gatherings be canceled for two months.

Guilds are encouraged to follow these guidelines for their general meetings, board meetings, workshops and other gatherings.  Please check the gathering/event guidelines for your local county and city as well. Note that some guilds have already cancelled large events, meetings, and workshops.  For cancelled events, SCCQG will spread the word as we can through the website and via email to all guilds. Contact info@sccqg.org if you are cancelling an event.

SCCQG Special Exhibit - Challenge 2020:  Honoring Road to California

Thank you to all guild members who entered a quilt into this exhibit. Each quilt was remarkable while sharing what the quilter enjoyed about attending Road to California Quilters Conference and Showcase over the years.

 We thank Matt Reese for the opportunity to share the many talents of Southern California quilters at this incomparable quilting venue.

SCCQG Special Exhibit - 2021 - What will be the theme?

The revelation of the 2021 theme will be announced at the April 2020 General Meeting. Listen and look for the new Call for Entries and Entry Form that will be presented at that time. The information will also be available on our SCCQG Home page. Any quilter who belongs to one of our Member Guilds is eligible to enter a quilt that interprets the theme.

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.
