El Camino Quilters has a quilt composed of blocks made by members of the guild. Every member is requested to make a block. See the document below for the instructions.
Quilts made by guild members are donated to a variety of organizations such as The Polinski Children's Center, Alzheimer's Association and the Tri-City Oncology and Neonatal Units and many other organizations.
Other philanthropic activities are undertaken periodically to support the community.
In memory of Fern Gibbs, her pattern titled "Any Scrap A-Doo" is available here to anyone wishing to make charity quilts.
Each year in February the guild arranges for a retreat at Temecula at Viña de Lestonnac Retreat Center. It is lots of fun and a great way to meet others in the guild. The 2021 Retreat is cancelled. Deposits for 2021 have been rolled over for the 2022 Retreat.
2021 Retreat (Canceled)
The Silent Auction is a time when members donate items to the guild and other guild members bid on them. The highest bidder pays the guild for the item and takes it home! The guild uses the money raised by these donations as one of the major fund raisers.
