Your Portland Modern Quilt Guild

  • You can find friends who "get" it, who share the thrill of the {fabric} hunt, your latest treasure, and the finally(!) finished project.
  • Monthly meetings are chock full of quick tutorials, timely presentations and the much-anticipated "Show & Tell". And treats!--thanks to generous members.
  • Special guests like Kathy Miller, Angela Walters and Lisa Anne Logan, bringing the wide world of quilting to you.
  • Members are eligible for the free fabric challenges--in 2012 we had three!
  • Members can show with the guild--in 2012 our guild was represented at Sisters' Quilt Show, NW Quilt Expo, and special exhibits at Island Quilter and Quiltworks quilt shops.
  • Sew Days! This year we hosted six, including a special sew&swap day at Staver Locomotive.
  • Swaps, meet-ups and field trips with other Modern Quilt Guilds; this year included Kansas City, Vancouver BC, Bend, Seattle, Eugene, and Bend.
