About Us

 
Suncoast Quilting Circle (SQC)
 
 
Our mission...to preserve the art of quilt making, stimulate and encourage interest through educating members and the community. 
 
 
Suncoast Quilting Circle (SQC) was founded in 1981 by an innovative and creative group of quilters.  The guild's first quilt show featured quilts covering the walls and hanging from the ceiling at Sewing Circle Fabrics!  In 2020 we will be holding our 18th quilt show!  We plan to have quilts hanging from the balcony at the Coliseum — a throw-back to those first SQC shows with quilts hanging everywhere! An indoor airing of the quilts! In addition, we will have the beautiful judged quilt show that our guild members have worked hard to accomplish over the years. We are a non-profit organization.  We welcome new members to our meetings and to join us for our 2020 quilt show.  Be part of it!
