Monthly Meetings

General meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month.

We meet from 9:30am - noon at El Corazon Senior Center, located at:

3302 Senior Center Drive, Oceanside, CA  92056

Meeting dates and times are subject to change and will be posted in the Meetings & Workshops page. 

Guests may attend by paying a $10 guest fee.

Monthly Program

Each month we have a guest speaker or special program for our members to educate our members on quilting techniques or particular aspects of quilting of interest to our Guild. Our speakers' presentations include a TRUNK SHOW displaying many finished quilting projects demonstrating the techniques or speaker's special skills. We see new patterns, learn about color selection, and see novel and innovative quilting techniques that we can incorporate into our own projects. Many of our speakers are well known in the industry or are recognized quilters whose quilts have been recognized winners at quilting shows all over the country. 

These presentations are both educational and inspiring to our members! 

Workshops

Workshops are generally held the Wednesday following Guild meetings and are usually presented by that month’s speaker. No workshops are scheduled the month of major fundraising events or retreats.

They are held at Quilt in a Day in San Marcos. See "Upcoming Events" below for details.

There may be a waiting list, so please sign up early. Your workshop reservation is not guaranteed until payment is received. 

Register online using the workshop button for each workshop listed below.

Sharing

Members may bring completed projects to share at each meeting; there is a limit of two quilts per person. It is inspiring and great fun to see the talents of other members. Sharing forms are available at the sharing table (usually located at the far side of the stage). Each quilt will be folded and the form included. During sharing, your photo may be taken. Please let the Guild photographer know if you prefer to not be photographed.
