2018-19 Programs & Workshops

Lectures are held on the first Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at Bethesda Covenant Church, 2101 E. State Street, Rockford, IL. Click on each speaker’s website to learn more about them.

Workshops are held on the following Friday and/or Saturday in a conference room at Swedish American Heart Hospital (Charles Street entrance … follow the signs once you enter the building). Full day workshops are 9:30-4:00 at a cost of $35.00 and $45.00 for non-members. Half day workshops are 9:30 to 12:30 at a cost of $20.00 and $25.00 for non-members. We are now extending our reduced fees to members of other quilting guilds. There may be an additional kit/supply fee. Please contact Marge Sment to sign up or fill out the Contact Us form.

Kit fees are payable directly to the instructors. You should only pay Sinnissippi Quilters for the workshop cost. Please do not pay Sinnissippi Quilters for your kits – it only makes things complicated for the guild and for our speakers.


August 2, 2018: Sew-in and New Board Members Trunk Show

We are replacing the stockings for soldiers sew-in with a sew-in for comfort quilt squares, neo-natal quilts, or making something for the quilt show boutique. Bring anything you would like to work on. Sewing is from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Lunch will be on your own or brown bag it. Come for a day of sewing and fellowship and stay as long as you like. There will be a business meeting, trunk show, and show & tell at 1:00 and 7:00.
