DDCQP work days are held in conjunction with the guild's second Tuesday or third Saturday drop-in work days. (Check the calendar as in some months the dates may change)  New volunteers are always warmly welcomed and encouraged to join in this activity.  Just bring your helping hands and willing hearts.  Supplies are provided.  We even make pre-cut kits for you to take home to sew together.

DDCQP work days meet at 980 Stannage Ave., Albany, CA from 9am to 3pm.
