SCVQA offers a variety of smaller sewing events through the month. From getting a project done, learning something new, completing works for charity, or just sewing along with friends, check to see if there is an event right for you.
SCVQA members enjoy giving back to the community. We make quilts, which we collect and donate to many charitable organizations. For those wanting to donate quilts, the Community Quilts team recommends the following approximate sizes, with width listed first:
Community Quilts in person meetings are following current Covid-19 guidelines. Contact Robin Scheiderer for questions and details if you would like to join us.
Join in on the fun of creating quilts for our community. We meet at Christ the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 1550 Meridian Ave. San Jose, CA two times a month (use the parking lot on Alta Glen Dr.):
Bring your sewing machine and all your sewing things to work on sewing tops or quilting sandwiches. We have irons and ironing boards if needed. Bring your measuring tape to help sort finished quilts and layer the tops we have received. We are a friendly group and look forward to meeting more SCVQA members.
Zoom Open Sew
Open Sew are held twice monthly on Zoom, one weekday evening and one weekend morning. This is a casual time to chat while you sew, or listen, or do other crafts. Links to join can be found in the Newsletter and in the Calendar of Events.
Quilting 101 is on hiatus due to the COVID-19 virus.
Quilting 101 is a tutorial offered by members of SCVQA to help members become more familiar with a variety of quilting techniques. It is not associated with regular workshops or visiting teachers. Q101 is not a small quilting group and members are expected to work on the project scheduled for a particular session.
Cost: The cost is $12.00 per session.
Note that Quilting 101 now has the same refund policies that govern SCVQA's monthly workshops. There are no refunds unless someone replaces you from the waiting list. And there is no fee forwarding from month to month.
Participants: All SCVQA members in good standing are welcome to sign up. We have openings for 30 members in every session.
