2018 Opportunity Quilt

Opportunity Quilt:

Guild members create an annual Opportunity Quilt. Proceeds support guild activities, including our philanthropic endeavors. Tickets are available from guild members - 6 for $5. The winner is drawn at our meeting or quilt show in October.

Kaleidoscope of Quilts:

Our biennial exhibition of over 100 quilts, garments, wall hangings and other quilted items made by members. The guild provides refreshments, a kids’ corner, silent auction and a display of items donated to philanthropy. Admission is free. The show is held in October at the Lemon Grove Masonic Center, 2590 Main St., Lemon Grove. The winner of the Opportunity Quilt is announced during the show. Check the October calendar for exact dates.

Camp Kaleidoscope Retreat:

Starting in 2000 the guild has organized a yearly retreat for guild members and friends. It is currently held at the Vina de Lestonnac Retreat Center in Temecula. Check the September calendar for dates and specific information about this year’s retreat.


Since its inception a major purpose of our guild has been to provide quilts to those in need. Over the years we have donated hundreds of quilts to Polinsky Children's Center, Edgemoor Hospital in Santee, Monte Vista Retirement Community in Lemon Grove, Project Linus, Becky's House, Ronald MacDonald House, La Jolla Veterans' Hospital and other veteran organizations.

We feel so strongly about giving to those in need that a requirement of membership is to donate one quilt each year to our philanthropic efforts—spreading love one quilt at a time. Recipients of our quilt donations last year included Project Linus, Ronald McDonald House, the Veterans' Home of California in Chula Vista, and tornado victims in Moore, OK.
