July 10, 2021 Upcoming Meeting

Topic: Recruiting and Retaining Volunteers

The meeting link will be sent out on July 1 to all officers on record.  Note, there will also be a New Reps Orientation on Friday July 9, at 4:00 pm. That link will be sent to all SCCQG Reps on record. 

As a nonprofit organization we understand how valuable volunteers are. When we volunteer, we gain friends while sharing our talents and abilities within our quilting community. All guilds depend on volunteers to accomplish the many responsibilities that running an organization either large or small require. Some activities can be done at home on one’s own time. Other tasks will be done during “on site” meetings or for special events. Currently, the traditional in-person meetings have now become virtual meetings via the Zoom platform. However, the need to have many hands to accomplish needed duties remains. The jobs are still the same but may need to be modified or have transformed into different undertakings. As the Covid 19 environment slowly returns to traditional in-person once again, there will even be a greater need for many members helping to transition to on-sight meetings and probably still include online meetings.

Volunteers retire, move away, or experience life changes that prevent them from serving the organization in the same way. Thus, newer members with fresh ideas are always appreciated. This program will provide the knowledge needed to encourage all members to join the team that leads to becoming a healthy and energetic twenty-first century guild.

Check out the Calendar at the bottom of the Home Page!
We're finally starting to see some quilt shows appear on the Calendar in October and November.  Is your guild starting to plan an event?  Send your event information to info@sccqg.org for Sandy, our webmaster, so that she can post your information on the Calendar. 

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.
