The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild meets today!

I'll be here tonight!

Can you see me jumping up and down with excitement? No? Well, I am! It's because tonight I'm going to the first meeting of the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild! We've had 20 people confirm that they're coming, with another 11 who might attend, and I'm so excited to meet other local modern quilters! The meeting is being hosted by Lili and Henry at Spool of Thread Sewing Lounge, one of my very favourite places to visit!

I heard about the very first Modern Quilt Guild back in October 2009 and thought, wow, I wish I lived in LA so I could go to a meeting! Then, this January, Alissa Carlton, one of the founders of the LAMQG, suggested that I start an online group in Vancouver to see if there was enough interest for a Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild. Well, it's been five months and we now have over 75 people in the group!

Thanks to everyone who has let people know about this meeting through the newspaper, blogs, and word of mouth! A huge thanks to my husband Dean, who has listened to me blather on about quilting non-stop for months. He can now tell the difference between Kona White and Kona Snow!


  1. Would this group welcome a somewhat novice quilter?

  2. Hi Kim!

    Absolutely! Quilters with all levels of experience are welcome. If you've got an interest in modern quilting, come to the meeting and see if the guild is a good fit for you.

    Please check out our website to learn more about the VMQG.

  3. Good luck tonight Hol! I hope you have a wonderful time! :)

  4. Thanks Holly! Wish I could make it tonight, but I'll have to join you another time. Good luck tonight.

  5. Wow, Dean's further ahead than I am! Still can't tell the difference. The meeting was fantastic Holly. Thanks for bringing us all together!
