2020-21 Programs & Workshops

Lectures are held on the first Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. and 6:30 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 $40.00 for members and $45.00 for non-members. Half day workshops are 9:30-12:30 at a cost of $25.00 for members and $30.00 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 Amy Salamone 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.
