Events Calendar

The Vallejo Piecemakers meets at the Florence Douglas Center (333 Amador Street, Vallejo, CA 94590). The General Membership meeting is held on the first Saturday of each month. Doors open at 9am and meeting starts at 10am. Classes, workshops and/or Open Sews are held on the third Saturday of each month. Doors open at 9am.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our regular meetings on the first Saturday of the month and classes/workshops/open sews on the third Saturdays of the month have been modified. See below for more information.


Saturday Virtual Get-togethers

Zoom

Since we are sheltered at home and can not have meetings in person, members can join our weekly Saturday morning virtual get-togethers via Zoom most Saturdays from 10 to 11 am. It’s informal and we just talk about what is going on while we are sheltered at home and show progress of our quilt projects.

Please check the Vallejo Piecemakers Facebook Group page for more details, including the link to the Zoom meeting.


Virtual Demos and Classes

Zoom

There will be Zoom demos & classes for the remainder of the calendar year. Starting September 19, 2020, every Saturday until Christmas you can meet up with your quilting buddies online and learn something fun at 11am. See list of classes below. (Zoom link will be sent out upon registering for sessions.) All demo sessions are free and last less than 60 minutes. All classes include the pattern and kit – just pick your own fabric. 
FREE DEMO for members via Zoom – instruction only – no sewing during the session. Register with Kris, Jackie or Jerrie at vicepresident@vallejopiecemakers.org. Zoom link will be sent out upon registering for sessions.


Zoom Mystery Quilt Alongs

Zoom

Kris will be leading a ZOOM Mystery Quilt Along, beginning Saturday, August 29, 2020 at 10am. The Clues will be given out every other Saturday, for six sessions. The meeting is brief—enough time to check in, show your progress, ask any questions, and see the next set of instructions. Clues will also be emailed out after the meeting, and the video demo as well, in case you need to refer back to it. Clues will not be posted in the newsletter or on Facebook. This is a free class for members. Contact Kris to register and if you have any questions.
