About Kathy Callahan

We find ourselves in a one-of-a kind experience, sheltering-in-place, and using social-distancing when leaving our homes for essential activities, like exercising and shopping. GQCCC has had to cancel the 2020 Quilt Show, cancel general meetings, close the Farmhouse, postpone member workshops and have virtual board meetings. During this stressful time, it’s good to remember that […]

John Muir Health and the VA hospital have requested masks. We are adding information from them on our Quilts to Share and Patriotic Quilts pages if you choose to help. It includes information about where to take completed masks.

We are cancelling our Quilt Show planned for the first weekend in April. We will miss sharing our love of quilting with you but feel we must act out of extreme caution and concern for members, vendors, and show attendees in light of the Covid-19 outbreak. We wish continued health for all. Stay tuned for […]

Following the recommendations of the Contra Costa County Health Services and in an abundance of caution for our members we have cancelled this meeting.

Thank you, Melissa Cardinet, for your inquisitiveness and stepping up to be our Parliamentarian. […]

2019 has flown by and 2020 is about to begin. Come bring a potluck item and celebrate with us at our Annual Holiday Social. If you are participating in the Secret Quilter, don’t forget to bring your gift. The Social is a great chance to get to know other members in the Guild. We will […]

As we move into November, I am thankful for the friendships I have made as a GQCCC Guild member. The holidays and end of year can be stressful but we quilters have a secret, we can pick up a needle, a rotary cutter or sit down at the machine and sew our stresses away. Our […]

It is October, the month of ghost and ghoulies, purple and orange. Always, a busy month in our family with making piñatas for birthday and Halloween parties. Have some holiday quilt projects you’re finishing up? Go ahead and share pictures with Kitty Nowack and she’ll post your spooky creations on social media. Thanks so much […]

Summer is coming to an end and school will be starting for my kids next week. I am looking forward to having more time to quilt and sew. Saturday, September 14th from 10 am to 3 pm, we are having a sew-in to prepare the muslin for the Quilt Show. Please contact Dianne Slattery or […]
