Santa Clara Valley Quilt Association 


The Association continues to welcome an exceptional group of guest speakers. One of the many benefits of membership is the opportunity to take workshops from top quilters in the industry. Workshop participation is limited to SCVQA members unless the class has not filled 30 days prior to class. Non-members are invited to sign up at that time if vacancies exist. Workshop prices vary by instructor and reflect actual costs.

For 2021 and 2022, all classes will be held virtually on the Zoom platform. An email with the link will be sent a few days before class.

Refer to workshop description for a more specific supply list.

For more information about workshops please contact Programs.


Registration begins 3 months prior to each workshop. Spaces in the workshops fill on a first come, first served basis and workshops usually accommodate 20 students. Any registrations received beyond 20 are automatically wait listed in the order they are received.

Non-SCVQA members are welcome to attend our workshops, but a $20 premium is charged. Non-members may sign up no sooner than 30 days prior to the workshop, to allow members priority registration for these special events. Why not consider joining SCVQA today?

Cancellation Policy

There are no refunds unless someone replaces you from the waiting list. Refunds for online payments will be minus the non-refundable portion of the online payment processing fees.

    "Candace says she doesn’t do difficult, and yet somehow her simple quilts look complex, putting a twist on traditional blocks.” Ricky and Alex, from The Quilt Show

    Candace’s workshop for November is A Maze Zing. This quilt started out as a variation on a jelly roll race. It will give participants practice on measuring and attaching borders. You can use it to make a very contemporary quilt quickly, but also works well with traditional fabrics for a classic look.

    Come and join us for what is sure to be a relaxing and inspiring workshop.
