Road to California 2024 Exhibit Report

The 2024 RD2CA exhibit was a success!

The concept for the 2024 exhibit was to get a wide sampling of quilts from member guilds with the overarching theme “Stitching a Community Together.”   Our guilds were supportive with submitting entries for our exhibit. All had stories that told how their quilt brought their community together whether it was within the guild, through a workshop or across the country.

Thank you to the exhibit hangers! It was a team effort.

                Janet Dietzman, Crazy Quilters                         Marc Hyatt – Quilters by the Sea

                Mary Jones – High Desert Quilters                    Lynn Lewis – Friendship Square QG

                Lynn Hana – Inland Empire MQG                      Chris Squires – Spouse and “gopher”

We want to thank Quilters by the Sea, North Cities Quilt Guild, and High Desert Quilters for the support they provided. When the exhibit seemed to be a bit sparse, they came through with additional quilts to fill in the blanks, and willingly took back some quilts to make way for others.

Check out the Calendar at the bottom of the Home Page!

We're getting back to something like normal.  You can see many more events and quilt shows listed in the calendar.  Is your guild starting to plan an event?  Send your event information to for Sandy, our webmaster, so that she can post your information on the Calendar.

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.
