Workshop Location

Our workshops are held at Community Presbyterian Church, 32202 Del Obispo Street, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675. Time: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Please arrive 15 minutes early to set up your work space. After the workshop chair helps the speaker and sets up the classroom, she will be happy to help you if you need assistance. Remember to bring your lunch/ drink/snack. You won’t want to spend time buying a lunch since the lunch break is limited. Fees are usually $50, but can be more when the speaker is bringing supplies. Fees are noted in the newsletter. 

Do not bring irons even if it is on the speaker’s supply list. The Guild will provide all irons.

You may cancel and receive a refund if you let the workshop chair know by email at least 45 days before the workshop. After that time, you will only be refunded if there is a person to fill your spot from the waiting list. We will wait until a check is received from the replacement before issuing a refund check.  

We will follow the Covid requirements of the church and whatever is required by Orange County at the time of our workshop. We will have the doors to the patio open to increase ventilation and we may place some tables outside on the covered patio. Further Covid requirements may be announced closer to the workshop date. Currently, masks are required per the State of California.
