Each month, Pioneer Quilters Guild members and guests enjoy a variety of speakers, activities, and workshops. Our 2022 schedule is below.
Workshops and other class opportunities are held at Shepard of the Sierra Church on Barton Road in Loomis. They go from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm (with set up beginning at 9:00) on the Tuesday following our Monday Guild meeting. The fee for professional workshops is $40; occasionally there will be an additional supply fee. Fees are due at the time of registration and are refundable up to 30 days before the workshop or if the class is canceled. From 30 days to the day before the workshop, fees will be refunded only if someone from a waiting list can fill the vacancy.
Members of other guilds are welcome to attend any workshop where there is room.
A reminder and general workshop materials list will be emailed to attendees a few days before the workshop. A specific supply list (relative to each workshop) will be given out when the fee is paid.
Other guilds in our area also have speakers and workshops that may be of interest to our members, and many welcome non-members in any class that is not full.
For further information, please contact Alex Enneking or Leslie Brush-Hauck.
