We learn. We share. We quilt. 

The Portland Modern Quilt Guild was formed in 2010 and has been a 501(c)(3) non-profit since 2016.  Now over 300 members strong, it is the largest guild of the Modern Quilt Guild.   

Since 2010, we have come together to learn and share our love of quilting. Officers are volunteers from our PMQG community. 

 

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to support and encourage the growth and development of modern quilting through art, education, and community.

The Portland Modern Quilt Guild fulfills its mission through charitable activities, member education, monthly member meetings, and volunteer opportunities.

2018 OFFICERS

The Guild has grown to nearly 300 members, and the 2017 Board felt that, in order to run the Guild effectively, some changes should be made to the composition of the Board. Members approved these changes when they voted on revised Bylaws in October.  They also elected the 2018 officers, who are:
