Special Events

Canyon has all types of special events. They are different each year, and we are always looking for help deciding what they should be. So please let us know if you’d like to help with those decisions.

Look through these events and pick those that look like fun. Better yet.. attend them all. Hope to see you there!

Canyon’s annual retreat at Vina De Lestonnac in Temecula. This is an wonderful opportunity to leave town for a few days, be fed incredibly delicious meals in a gorgeous setting, with no obligations except to have fun with your friends. We can sew into the late night, wake up and start again as early as we want, or sleep in and relax!

Make sure you sign up early, as spaces are limited.

The Member Challenge quilts are revealed at this special meeting (the theme and rules are announced in June). Join in the fun as you vote for your favorite quilt. Participate in the silent auction and bid for your favorite quilt.
