SCVQA members enjoy giving back to the community and fulfilling part of the association's mission to support philanthropic endeavors. We make quilts, which we collect and donate to many charitable organizations. We also gather for Community Quilts Work Days where we can work together and share the tasks involved in organizing and completing quilts for donation.
For those wanting to donate quilts, the Community Quilts team recommends the following approximate sizes, with width listed first:
Community Quilts in person meetings
Community Quilts in person meetings are following current Covid-19 guidelines. Contact Robin Scheiderer for questions and details if you would like to join us.
Join in on the fun of creating quilts for our community. We meet at Christ the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 1550 Meridian Ave. San Jose, CA two times a month (use the parking lot around the corner and down the road on Alta Glen Dr.) From that parking lot, follow the walkway through the breezeway into the courtyard and you will find us in the great hall on your right.
Bring your sewing machine and all your sewing things to work on sewing tops or quilting sandwiches. We have irons and ironing boards if needed. Bring your measuring tape to help sort finished quilts and layer the tops we have received. We are a friendly group and look forward to meeting more SCVQA members.
