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. We have plenty for members and guests to do before the program starts.

  • Membership. Pick up a member directory or a bookmark. Chat with the membership chairs about what it means to be a Canyon member
  • Philanthrophy. Chat about how to help. Pick up kits to start making quilts with
  • Program. Learn about upcoming events and workshops. Signup for classes
  • Fat Quarter Exchange. Play by bringing a fat quarter in the month’s theme and maybe win all the fat quarters
  • Retreat. Sign up and join the fun

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 2019 speakers.
