2019 Canyon Programs

Canyon Quilters of San Diego is San Diego’s premier quilting guild. We meet at The Salvation Army Meeting Room, 4710 Balboa Avenue,  the third Monday of every month except December.

Doors open at 6:30, and we have plenty for members and guests to do before the program starts. There is a table for Membership, where you can pick up a member directory or a bookmark, chat with the membership chairs about what it means to be a Canyon member; there is a Philanthropy table where you can chat about how to help, and even pick up kits to start making quilts with; there is a Programs table where you can learn about upcoming events and workshops; there are tables to go to in order to participate in any of our current fun activities (Fat Quarter Exchange, signups for Programs or Retreat, or visit Philanthropy); and there are tables to sign up for  other ways to volunteer in community events.

The program begins at 7:00. There is sharing at almost all meetings, and either a special event or a lecture/ trunk show by a prominent quilter. Canyon is known for hiring the best teachers and speakers, and we take our reputation seriously. Here is a list of the 2018 speakers:
