Throughout the year our chapter schedules several annual & special events. These usually are limited in size and have small fees associated with them. Some of these are our Autumn Gala Luncheon, Fabric Shopping Bus Trip, our Annual Sewing Retreat, plus Sewing Workshops and Seminars … see pictures below …

For our current workshops click here - Workshops & Seminars

Autumn Gala Luncheon

Once a year we hold our Autumn Gala Luncheon, it’s usually in the early fall.  We engage a local or national speaker, who can provide us with a trunk show, or a fashion show, and they are encouraged to bring items for sale!  We enjoy a catered lunch from one of our local restaurants. We have fun talking with members who we may not have seen in recent months. At each of these meetings in addition to speaker's show, we have a Member’s Fashion Show, where they can display their beautiful garments or other items. In addition to all of the above fun filled activities we have a Opportunity Baskets and sometimes a sewing machine or serger donated from one of our local sewing machine stores. In addition we take time to elect our Chapter Advisory Board Members for the following year.

Fabric Hound Express

Every year, in late summer we charter a full size bus and head out for a day full of shopping, talking, eating, and again shopping. We are very fortune in the Bay Area to have several fabric/quilt stores and we try our best each year to support these business.

Annual Sewing Retreat

Another annual event within our chapter is our Sewing Retreat. We hold this event in January at a beautiful retreat center in San Juan Bautista, CA.  We start our retreat on Thursday afternoon and end on Sunday afternoon.  We spend the time sewing, just sewing, eating fabulous food, shopping at a local quilt store, and watching the deer and wild turkeys roam the property.  This is an unstructured sewing retreat, no teachers, but we sometimes have a fun sewing related games to play.
