Quilt and pillowcase kits are distributed to members at the monthly DVQ general meetings. Members also gather at 12919 Alcosta Blvd., #1, San Ramon on the last Friday of the month to pin baste quilt tops, iron and package pillowcases, and construct more quilt tops. The workshop is open to everyone, so come join us and enjoy a fun day while giving back to the community:
Our new location as of January 2014 is 12919 Alcosta Blvd. #1, San Ramon, CA. Turn off Alcosta into the U. S. Post Office entrance. As soon as you can, move over to your left and follow the street/alleyway. There will be buildings on your left and a fence on your right. Look for the number on the building – we will have signs out to help you find the way. We will start at 10:00 AM and work until about 3:00 PM. There are no restaurants within walking distance so you should either plan on bringing your lunch or leaving and driving to your favorite lunch spot. San Ramon Marketplace (Alcosta and Bollinger Canyon) is about five minutes away or Crow Canyon Commons (Crow Canyon Road and Camino Ramon) is also about five minutes away.
Please contact Linda (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Maryann (email@example.com) for any additional information or if you would like to make a donation to our Outreach program or if you know of a child in need of a juvenile quilt or pillowcase.
