Countdown to Quilt Con!

Hey all ,

 I know I'm busy with all my to do lists today, how about you? We are about 4 days away from Quilt Con 2016 in Pasadena and the pressure is on!

Hey all!

I know you have been waiting patiently to bring the 80's back  for more information about the proposed Pantone Color of the Year challenge. I will admit, I am a fan of this combo. Maybe it's because I was too young in the 80's to have been really been scared by the overabundance of this combo. Maybe I only fondly remember my mothers obsession with mauve and cornflower blue and all the geese in bonnets that went along with it. I wanted to propose this as a ...

We're so excited! We were able to get Weeks Ringle to come present next April! We're partnering with Cloth Carousel, an awesome quilt shop in Winters, just 30 miles from Sacramento.

They have a great selection of fabrics and the women that work there are all so nice and knowledgeable.

Posted by SacModQG Admin on September 15, 2014 at 1:20 PM Comments comments (0)

If our guild decides to join as an affiliate guild of the Modern Quilt Guild, we’ll need to establish formal by-laws for our group. We’ve drafted a starting point for a potential new guild. We’ve tried to preserve aspects of our current group that seem to resonate with everyone and keep this document as straight forward as possible.

As we make our decisions on whether to join, these by-laws may give you an idea of what a new guild could look like. If you’re ...

We had a great meeting in April with lots of conversation on where we’d like our guild to go.

In the next couple months, we’ll be exploring some changes while still preserving the camaraderie that we all love.
