Informal Workshops

Informal workshops provide an excellent opportunity for quilters to meet together to learn from each other; to share ideas; to become acquainted with a group of friendly, helpful folks; to work on special guild projects; and even to share lunch!

Informal workshop days are moving to the second Thursday of the month effective April 2019. In addition, Informal workshops will also be held on the fourth Thursday during the months of May, June, July, and August.

Informal workshops will be held at Jacaranda Trace, second floor, in the Arts and Crafts room, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. You are free to bring your own project or to participate in guild projects such as sewing projects for the Quilt Show boutique. Please wear your name badge.

While you can bring your own lunch, you can also purchase a lovely lunch in the dining room for a very reasonable price. If you will be staying for lunch, please make your reservation with Cheryl Czerwinski by noon on the Monday prior to the Thursday Informal (the café needs advance notice to ensure adequate food and staff). Cheryl can be reached at 248-505-4164 or Cash only – no credit cards, and exact change is needed. Lunches run from $6.75 to $8 and include your entrée, beverage, and dessert. No tipping allowed!! To ensure you have correct change, please bring one 5, three 1s, and four quarters.

Jacaranda Trace is located at the NE corner of US 41 and Jacaranda Blvd., 3600 William Penn Way, Venice, FL 34293. On Thursdays you may find parking under the Cadbury Commons building (follow the ‘Event Parking’ signs); if not, park in the shell lot behind the Cadbury Commons Building. Follow the concrete path to the back entrance door. Once inside, step onto the elevator to the 2nd floor, turn right and go to the end of the hall. You will hear us laughing - follow the sound.

Hope to see many of you there.
