Exploring creativity through quilting

Workshops 


The CCQG Workshop Committee is beginning to offer some in person workshops and events; however, due to COVID guidelines for meetings of large in person groups, we ask that you please wear a mask if you are unvaccinated and adhere to the social distancing guidelines that are in place. 

Workshops are a favorite benefit of CCQG membership.  Exposure to new techniques is inspiring.  You can meet a world-class textile/design instructor in a small virtual group setting.    You will leave energized from the creative and social workout.

Need to do some shopping for supplies for a class?  Check out the Resource page to locate a local retailer.

No workshops will be held in June-August, and December.
