Programs

Welcome to the Seaside Piecemakers Programs Guide.  As a guild, we are focused on Community Service and Education.  We work hard throughout the year raising money to bring teachers from around the country to our guild so that we can learn different techniques, develop new skills and explore all aspects of the quilting world.  I encourage you take advantage of this tremendous opportunity. How lucky we are to have these teachers available to us! We welcome guests to register to attend these classes, too.
