Guilds offer endless opportunities to learn & network

Many quilters belong to one or more quilt guilds. They enjoy the fun of belonging to a guild through friendships that often become lifelong friendships offering encouragement and support in good times and in bad. The guilds offer typically provide educational opportunities thru speakers, and workshops, which can also provide inspiration, as well as offering inspiration through sharing. And, to my delight guilds frequently help with community and charity programs. Plus, many times local stores will offer discounts to members of guilds.

Regardless if you belong to a guild or you don't, there is an advantage of being aware of your local quilt guilds and being familiar with the programs they offer. While you may not want to be a member, many guilds will allow non-members to attend a meeting, to listen to a speaker, as well as attend a workshop, for a nominal fee.

As we are approaching fall, I wanted to encourage everyone to take time to look into local quilt guilds and see if guilds that you may not belong to have scheduled a speaker or workshop that might interest you. You may want to attend that presentation and/or workshop. View it as a supplemental opportunity, beyond what your local shops may offer, or if you belong to a quilt guild(s), what your guild may offer. It doesn't mean you are disloyal, but provides you a way to broaden your networking capabilities. Thus, I have compiled insights on quilt guilds in my Southern California area. And I've spotted many speakers and workshops that I'm interested in attending in the 2009/2010 calendar.

You may see something that catches your eye, and even if you don't live in Southern California, we are a great place to visit. Maybe one of these lectures and/or workshops may trigger a vacation opportunity for you to come to Southern California. And if you live in other areas, and like to blog, I hope you'll also share insights on what is going on in your area. Wouldn't it be fun to help facilitate vacation planning, not just by when a quilt show is scheduled, but when a quilt guild presentation/workshop is scheduled that may be of interest?

The information that I compiled came from the So. California Quilt Guild Association website. I solicited the guilds for updates and additional information, and many were kind enough to reply. For those that may have corrections, or additional information, please feel free to send me an email and I'll try to update, as appropriate.
