Santa Clara Valley Quilt Association


After the pandemic we have not yet been able to start offering retreats again. If you are interested in helping to organize a retreat, know of a good venue, or have any other suggestions please reach out to the board. This is something we would love to offer if there is enough interest. 

In Town Retreats - Sewing retreats are held locally for members to get together and sew for a weekend in a group setting.

Marin Retreats - Sewing retreats are held in scenic Marin for members to get together and sew for a weekend in a group setting.

The Marin Retreat: A Vacation For Your Senses

The SCVQA Marin retreat offers a unique place to sew while enjoying wonderful food, and being inspired by nature. It's a great way to interact with approximately 25 creative, and fun-loving guild members. Our retreat location, The Marin NatureBridge, is a decommissioned military base nestled in the Marin Headlands. Our home-away-from-home is the Sunset Lodge where we sew and socialize to our heart's content.

We are actively in touch with NatureBridge, they have not yet been able to secure enough staff to offer retreats for groups like ours. 

In Town Retreat: The Fun, Easy Escape

For many years the association offered an In-Town Retreat in February and September. We accommodate 28 people for a three day sewing spree close to home. This makes an easy escape to just pile everything in our cars and drive a few miles across town. If you forget something just make a quick trip to nearby quilt shops or home.

These retreats have not yet resumed.
