The Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild was founded in February 2010. Our first meeting was in March 2010. Our guild is the local chapter of The Modern Quilt Guild. The Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild was founded by Alissa in February 2010. The founding branch of the Modern Quilt Guild started in Los Angeles in October of 2009. Our founder Alissa had become aware of the LA chapter and watched the Modern Quilt Guild grow. She was also aware of the modern quilting movement online, a community, but it was online. She wanted that quilting community in real life. So after checking and checking on a Sacramento chapter, she just decided to start it; someone had to. In May Alissa moved out of state and Jenniffier volunteered to manage the website and to keep the guild up and running. She too wanted to bring the Modern Quilt Guild movement to Sacramento and did not want to see the Sacramento Chapter disbanded before it really had a chance to start.
Modern Quilting is a twist on traditional quilt. For each person this may have a different meaning. For some it is modification on the methods or materials they use in their quilts. For others it maybe the use of modern fabrics. Others may believe it has to do with the look of the quilt or a way of sharing the art of quilting. Around the internet you can find many definitions of modern quilting. The Modern Quilt Guild has a great statement of what Modern Quilting is about. Our guild is accepting of all members definitions of what a modern quilt is and what modern quilting means to them.
All levels of experience levels are welcome. We have members who have been quilting for 40 years to members who are just starting out. We welcome anyone who has an interest in modern quilting.
