Speakers and Workshops

Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month from 10:00 a.m. to noon at San Clemente Presbyterian Church, 119 N. Avenida De La Estrella, San Clemente.

Workshops are held at San Juan Mobile Estates, 32302 Alipaz, San Juan Capistrano from 9:30 to 3:30 on the Wednesday following the SQG general meeting unless otherwise noted.

Any kit or book fees are payable directly to the teacher. The workshop fees are $40.00. Non-member fees are $50.00. Please make checks to Surfside Quilters Guild; the bank will not accept SQG.

SQG members have first priority for workshop reservations until the break at the previous general meeting. Non-members are put on a waiting list and will be confirmed to attend following the break.

If you have a reservation but are unable to attend, please attempt to find someone to fill your space and advise the appropriate guild representative by e-mail ASAP. Refunds are available until the break of the previous month’s general meeting.

Note: All Lecture and Workshop topics are subject to change without notice.

Feel like just doing a whole bunch of sewing,

this is the class for you! We make sashed
four-patches, and slashed diagonals, mixing
up the pieces to create a lively quilt! This
quilt works wonderfully with solids or batiks.
